Based on the recent houseplan and scrapbooking project, a bungalow variant. It's all on one floor, has one bedroom and a small guest/child room. Only 2 reception rooms instead of the 3rd gaming room, and no integrated garage or shed. So obviously, this house comes with the idea of having no children or only … Continue reading A bungalow concept
I went and did a thing that I didn't initially expect to do. I bought woodlice for Joop's tank. I can already hear people wondering how mad I've gone, but there is a reason for it. They work as so-called "vivarium custodians" and wander around eating old food, poo, and generally keeping the soil in … Continue reading I got woodlice
Almost three weeks by the time I'm actually writing this. It's fun being married. I know not a lot actually changes day to day, but there's a weird undercurrent of contentment. As I said before, we love all our presents, but the biggest news is probably that we have a dishwasher! It's not a cure-all … Continue reading Two weeks married!
Eight years ago, it was 2010 and I met Will. We started dating after 2 days, moved in together after 2 weeks, and into a flat of our own after 2 months. I was hoping we'd continue the pattern and get married in 2 years, but life got in the way. It turned out we … Continue reading We got married!
A few ridiculously slapstick things that have happened recently: I was in the entrance area by our front door, cleaning. I turned around, and saw Jodi through the glass. I screamed in surprise. While screaming, my jeans fell down around my ankles. (I have since bought a belt.) While trying to operate the door to … Continue reading Slapstick
Not a lot of especially interesting stuff happened in the past week, but it was a bit of a weird one anyway. Also for some reason, in the post before last, photos that were uploaded in the portrait orientation, became landscape after I published the post. I don't know how to sort that out, they … Continue reading The mediocre week
It must have been nearly a month since I did this, perhaps because I've spent more time either doing house things or fruitlessly trying to gain energy via napping. This past week I had a triple-whammy of pain in the form of a 10/10 migraine complete with vomiting and diarrhoea, a period, and an alarmingly … Continue reading I’m not very good at blogging
Here are some photos from the last month or so. PS: If you start shopping at smile.amazon.co.uk, you can select our charity to support. We get a tiny contribution when you make an order.
I haven't blogged for ages, not since January if you don't count my last post, which was in the works for a while. I'm not up to a lot at the moment because I am having Chronic Fatigue problems.
We went to Will's mum's house for a couple of nights for New Year's Eve. In probably uninteresting news, I've decided to stop straightening my hair and try letting it go curly again. Even though I don't actually like that look on myself. Relaxing it is hard these days as my sister is … Continue reading Xmas and NYE round-up
