Away With the Ferries

      1 Comment on Away With the Ferries

Ferries, faeries, har har har. Z just commented that Smalls says the former like the latter, which… maybe that’s why this went into my head. I don’t really know. It could also be that I am an eXtreme smart-ass. It’s been a pretty decent day all told. We got up at a reasonable hour this morning, which was good ’cause… Read more »


      No Comments on Footrest

One thing that I tend to do without thinking about it is use my desktop tower as a footrest. I’ve done it as long as I can remember, and it doesn’t do it any harm. AND — it leads to that hilarious moment when it’s not there where I try to put my feet up and nothing is there. But… Read more »

Home Sweet Home

      No Comments on Home Sweet Home

We are home, and with no puke-based incidents! The littlest slept most of the way between ferry and home, so we managed to put off feeding her until we were safely back on terra firma. I think she was understanding of this, as she tried to sate herself with squash rather than demanding food. But yeah, we made it in… Read more »

Slowly Packing it In

      No Comments on Slowly Packing it In

Today is our last day of vacation. So instead of doing anything, we’re avoiding the daystar and chilling inside. Is fine by me; even if I wanted to see the wool shop, I’m much happier not moving. My back seized up rather painfully, so I took some Nurofen Plus, and it’s starting to unkink a little. It’s still painful, but… Read more »

Choo Choo

Today, after getting led on a merry spirally chase by our sat-nav, we ended up at the steam train just in time for its pre-lunch trip. Perfect, non? Had a ride, had some food, and then rode the other train going the other way. That’s where today’s cover image comes from, by the by — for some reason, we keep… Read more »

This Again

      No Comments on This Again

Okay so like, I’m pretty determined to continue doing this as a daily, but right now I’m just freaking annoyed as hell with it. I like to do things on a schedule me, and the way things are going across the vacation means I’m not getting to this until late. This feeds my annoyance and anxiety, and and and. *shrugs… Read more »

In spite of me being antsy and cranky last night, things were fine. I had a good night’s sleep, got up, and had a nice bath. Clean hair? Awww yiss.    Well, it wasn’t exactly perfect right off either. Myself, Z, and his mother all seem to have been having morning headaches the last couple of days. I almost ditched… Read more »

It Was Grayer in Person…

      No Comments on It Was Grayer in Person…

But then, that could have been because my glasses were covered in a fine spray. It wasn’t raining per se, but the wind was super-gusty, and it had water in it. I was amused when I took the picture and looked at it properly, ’cause seriously, the wet on my glasses meant that it looked loads darker. At this exact… Read more »

‘Tis a Lovely Day by the Seaside…

      No Comments on ‘Tis a Lovely Day by the Seaside…

And by ‘lovely’, of course, I mean ‘pissing it down with rain’. Because yanno, British and appreciate irony! Having said that, we knew there was supposed to be *some* rain this trip… but like, tomorrow. Instead, we’ve had a wet today, are forecast for a wet tomorrow, and apparently can expect like, an entire month’s of rain across it. Oh… Read more »

All in One

      No Comments on All in One

I am in a hotel room with three other people. Two of them are young and the only reason they aren’t bouncing off the walls right now is because we crammed them full of food. I’ll take it, honestly! The drive here went well, outside of Littlerbit puking twice. Apparently, she’s inherited all of mine and Z’s genes for car… Read more »
