Worth It

      No Comments on Worth It

And by ‘worth it’, I mean we spent a grand total of £2 in the ‘play until you win’ claw machine for an official Grumpy Cat plush. Smalls was impressed, so she did the same. Then Littler spotted the one that had flamingos in it, and we got her one of those. We topped off our claw machine escapades by… Read more »

Nature is Beautiful

      No Comments on Nature is Beautiful

One of the things we did today was go to a seal sanctuary. It was pretty cool, though finding this random sighting in the reptile house cracked me the heck up. Other things I saw that were out of commission were labelled as such, while this was inexplicably empty. Having said that, better empty than showing a lizard living in… Read more »

Trip to Xanth…

      No Comments on Trip to Xanth…

Or, at least, the nearest thing in actual existence, ha ha. We ended up going to a model village today, and the puns were atrocious. Which is to say, I delighted in them for the sheer terribleness, because that’s the point, isn’t it. That was leaving the house the second of the day for the half of the fam, and… Read more »

Sights and Delights

Yes, it’s a lost shoe on a pole — surprise! *laughs* It’s the sort of random sight that amuses and delights me, because yanno… random. All about the random. I am tired. I’ve left the house a few times already, because yanno, I don’t want to spend the entire trip cooped up. We stopped by the wool shop, which turns… Read more »

Me Too, Friendo

After a less than auspicious start vis-à-vis a severe leg cramp in the night, it’s been alright. Z took the girls out after breakfast for a wander, then came back for lunch. We then set out for the aquarium, which pleasantly killed a few hours. Pictured here was a napping octopus hiding in a bit of fake coral. I especially… Read more »

Packing, Shuffling

Things are progressing towards completion for our heading out tomorrow. We’ve gotten just about the rest of the laundry caught up, mine and Littler’s case is packed, and Smalls and Z will complete their case shortly; theirs is being delayed by a shirt Smalls wanted to take that is in the dryer. I’ve still got a few bits and bobs… Read more »

In Progress

      No Comments on In Progress

Today has definitely been a good day to start our two weeks off. Z took the girls for a spot of shopping this morning, and picked up some sandwiches on the way back. I’ve had a long hot bath, and been working on my earring listings. I think I’ve almost got my head around how to photograph against black, and… Read more »

A Little for Me

      No Comments on A Little for Me

It seems that on my brain’s holiday to-do list is to make sure I have plenty of stitch markers. I even ordered a pretty tin to put them in, because yanno, I apparently had a need. The ones pictured here are small, as in, will do 4mm needles and under. Which if I’m honest, covers most of my knitting needs,… Read more »


      No Comments on Ka-ching

I semi-recently added the Sell on Esty app on my phone to make it easier to get my photographs into draft listings. I went a step further and set up some custom notifications, because hey, it’s super easy to do these days. What cracks me up is that the notification I set for people liking items confuses the hell out… Read more »
