So, what with not having posted properly for ages again, I haven’t mentioned that there are two new additions to the family!  One actual brand new person, and one fuzzy feline dictator. First of all (not chronologically, but never mind … finish reading “Welcome to the jungle family!”

Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Other-Things-of-Varying-Toxicity

That time of year (ie. the end of it) has crept upon me somewhat unawares yet again.  Insert “where has the time gone?!” shock and confusion here.  However, I am sort of, kind of, mostly ready for Christmas.  I think.  … finish reading “Christmas Time, Mistletoe and Other-Things-of-Varying-Toxicity”

Marking a century

My granddad would’ve been 100 years old today.  Happy Birthday Poppa! That’s the two of us together when I was small.  He died a few years ago now, and for another few years before that wasn’t really ‘himself’ due to … finish reading “Marking a century”

Pretties from NZ

My brother and sister-in-law brought pressies back from New Zealand!  So I thought I’d show one of mine off: The name of the colour comes from a New Zealand bird which has plumage in the colour of the yarn.  Oh, … finish reading “Pretties from NZ”

Family Reunion

My brother and sister-in-law got home from their honeymoon today, hooray!  They’ve been in New Zealand for two months, so it’s lovely to have them back and be able to see them and chat to them in person, rather than … finish reading “Family Reunion”

Things and Stuff

Today has been a day of variety, which has been nice!  I started out by going up to the Christmas fair for Mum’s church – I got there quite late on, so I helped clear up and carry the remaining … finish reading “Things and Stuff”

WIP Blitz

The last, oh, while, I’ve been feeling quite determined to finish off all the knitting projects I have sitting around partly done.  Which is good!  Right?  Right.  It feels like I’ve done more knitting this year than I actually have … finish reading “WIP Blitz”

Late night blogging

Whoops… I’m really tired today, and I nearly forgot to post.  Wouldn’t that have been a good start to NaBloPoMo.  As it is I have no time to think up anything clever or interesting (as if there’s ever anything along … finish reading “Late night blogging”

Fun things (Part 1?)

Alright, so I said I’d make sure I was doing at least one necessary thing and one thing for fun every day… how’ve I been doing so far? Monday: Cleaned the bathroom and kitchen thoroughly; knitted and listened to podcasts. … finish reading “Fun things (Part 1?)”

Productive day

I did lots today, and even managed to get in a nap this afternoon.  Well, I’d worn myself out!  Of course, when I say “lots”, that’s “lots for me”, but still.  I’ve been to see the Flower Festival at Mum’s … finish reading “Productive day”

And I’m Done

Woohoo, I’ve completed NaBloPoMo for June.  I shall give myself a pat on the back… and maybe check if there’s a “winner” badge or something.  No big deal if not. I’ve also been seeing how I can do on the … finish reading “And I’m Done”

I is for Identification

F is for Friends, Family, and Food

Which three things sum up my day fairly well, really.  My whole weekend, in fact.  Like I said, we went to see Ally and family yesterday and out into the park where I saw several people I’d been at school … finish reading “F is for Friends, Family, and Food”
