Quite the understatement really. I went down with the flu on Monday, which was and still is my week. Don't know why I expected to be better by now, clearly, I was optimistic. If only that worked. COVID was annoying but this is downright misery. Since getting COVID on May 5th, I have unwittingly opened … Continue reading Lookin’ out my back door.

In some ways, I'm glad to see the back of it for another year. It's a day I don't particularly enjoy. There's a lot of cooking and cleaning involved, and then a lot of clean-up.

Part of me is delighted, because last year I knitted AWESOME jerseys but the rest of me is unimpressed because I like summer and very much dislike winter. (And it's coming!) Yesterday I wore my big purple knitted jacket, it was cold enough. Today, I'm working from home so an old hoodie will do the … Continue reading Almost jersey weather!
... when everything just pisses you off? ... when no matter how loud your music is you still want to stab someone?Yeah, that.Currently listening to the Psychobyte playlist via noise cancelling headphones so I can't hear ANYTHING else.
