Um. Ack.

I wanted to post something, coz it's been a while, but I'm having technical difficulties with my phone - which is where I've been taking pics lately coz it's easier to upload them to the puter.

so, alas, alack I have no post at the mo....

I've finished a bigger crotchet monkey for STFU. and I've been pondering things. But with the technical snafu I'm not really in a place where I can be bothered typing up all my ponderings. 

Altho  I will, you'll note, ramble on about bullshit.  *shrug*  I've tried to work out how my brain works and failed. You are welcome to explain it to me!!'s an interesting link in lieu of pics from me

thanks, to my LilBigBrother for the link  something to do on a sunny afternoon with a friend or two  

 and all going well, I will have things fixed in the next day or so. I hope so, coz it's really starting to piss me off. 

I will say before I go, YAY for brothers who are awesome, understand technical stuff and are able to give advice from miles away!! you know who you are ;OD

Busy Times Doing Nothing Much

I got all dressed up the other day, got ready, met the kid sitter and fled out the door to my physio appt.

Arrived on time. Awesomeness. Then the receptionist asked for my name again....

I was a day early.  *facepalm*

On the up side I've been productive over the weekend.....

Dyed my hair again  

Blue frog
And crotchetted these two gorgeous if slightly weird looking creatures.... 

A green squirrel. Of course.

And now I'm working on a monkey for Dude.... then STFU & Ginger want monkeys too, but I think they will be a little bigger. Or I'm gonna spend my days trying to find these little 10cm buggers all round the place all day long.....

Not so much fun.

But I'm enjoying the being creative process. and also being able to reasonably easily adapt the recipes (read: patterns)  by myself, even tho I'm a relative novice at this crotchetting lark.

And now I must go break up another fight. The manufacturers of waterslides FUCKEN LIED!! It's not all happy children laughing & playing here.  

I'm blaming the muggines. I think *fingers crossed* that medicating them with iceblocks might work. 

The cool water certainly hasn't.  :O/

Awesome. Just Awesome.

So, two-thirds of my kids were taken away yesterday - gone to sleep over at various places. 

I haven't been noticed to be THAT bad a parent. Yet.  :O)

anyways, coz it's been kinda rainy, and I only have 2 little ones left in the house, I've been lazily sitting online a LOT in the last 24 hours.

But I came across this....ok, I was on twitter and some other awesome person found it and posted about it! :OP  I thought it was worth a mention.

this is who I wanna be when I grow up 

Read the link.

I'll wait.

That. That is the kinda love I wanna show my kids (I'm talking about the brother here, not the dad. Obviously!) That's the kinda defence I wanna be brave enough to display for my Lunatics, to allow them to be the people they wanna be. 

May I be granted the grace to be that strong. :O)
