have done a flist cull

I did it. I culled my f-list.

Mostly comms and feeds, only one or two people.

If i chopped you, its not personal, its that my friends page was getting so big and overwhelming, that i needed to remove some stuff so i could actually get it backread in the mornings before school.

As it was, i've not been reading much because it was overwhelming.

Anyhoo i love you guys and sorry for neglecting. Struggling a lot with the 5mo old who avoids sleeping like the plague... the all-night human pacifier/dummy routine is getting difficult to deal with, yes.

Plus there's some family drama/tragedy taking place, and it looks like nanny, 88, bladder cancer, who is in hospital at the mo, went in for some virus, may not make it. Harder explaining it to R than trying to come to terms with it myself! sigh.

xx much love

Torchwood 2.9

Something Borrowed - yeah, i needed to borrow something, all right - a tissue.  Since when does Torchwood make me cry ?

Good episode, nothing especially special i didn't think, but still nice all around.

Couldn't stay up for it, went to bed early. Had to watch it this morning by other means. Still fell asleep on the toilet again today after the school run. Unbelievable. Never been this tired in my entire life, ever.

Happy Mothering Sunday, folks!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there.

I'm having a nice one already - greeted with a card and gift, Goober didn't wet the bed, and I'm going to cut better half's hair shortly. :)

Got a trip out to the local pub for a nice lunch and then an hour or two at the play area for goober. Sounds relaxing to me; last time i was there i fell asleep! lol

Hope everyone has a wonderful sunday, and do remember to say 'Thank you' to your mum, who has given up so much for you.

Earthquake 1am

Uh. I was awake when it happened. Our bed was shaking loudly. I thought it was a cat clawing the end of the bed until momentum got up, then i couldn't explain it.

Better half sat up, said it was a quake, said it happens all the time, got on the british geological survey website for a bit on his phone to see if there was any mention of it, then went back to sleep. Cool but scary.

move over Tescos...

I've found something leaner!  Hee :)

I've gone local for butcher and greengrocer, and will never look back.

Tescos, your meat and veg suck. Nyah!

I'll still buy other stuff there because the prices are unbeatable on clothes and laundry soap and cereals and tea and all sorts, but not the main part of our meals, not any more.  Not now that i understand what free range and grass fed REALLY means...

Holidays are officially over as of today. Tomorrow school and playgroup resume.

YAY!!!!!!!!!11!1

I'll feel better back in my daily routine, and I'm sure pumpkin will as well. Its not been easy round here for the holidays because nothing is as it was prior to the 22nd of Dec...

shopping lub

Now, i normally don't support shops like tesco because they're taking over the world, but:

we've spent about £200 there this 'month' so far (since payday, the 16th -- that's like 4 days' worth of spending, ohmygod):

* i got pumpkin 3 nice long sleeved shirts for £5. They have a wide neck so she can get them on without having a meltdown.
* the turkey (and other veg to go along side it) was a reasonable price
* I just got a lovely 38F bra for £5. wow. (santa can give it to me later, heh) -- if i had known that tescos did bras big enough for my watermelons, i'd have been shopping there long time. I'd really have rather had a G but i can make do with an F.
* we got lots of nick nacks for not a lot today - crisps, cookies, mince pies, and various xmas stuff to eat in the days after xmas when we're bored and want to snack
* i'll get my glasses there next payday - prisms don't cost any extra, so i can have my lenses for free, you just pay for frames. even the test was free yay. frames are £99 with a £10 off voucher, yay
* better half has been finding organic meat at nearly non-organic prices - yay
* organic milk isnt even that much more dear than regular milk

And clubcard points? Better half hasn't been bothering with them... i signed us up with a clubcard a few weeks back - we'll make a killing on it. Wish we had all the years' past points to add on, duh. What a dummy.

We've spent waaaay too much, but its been lovely to find all the stuff we need at not outrageous prices.

Tescos - love you long time. Love you more now that i live within walking distance. yay.

Birthday party

went well on Saturday. Had a lot of fun. Good fun.

Nosy bossy know-it-all family members annoy the fucking shit out of me and hurt my feelings, especially the really bloody manipulative ones, but alas.

We still had fun, though. Family politics aside.

Christmas rules :)

Tuesday we had a christmas nativity play at playgroup. - i got to see pumpkin be an angel in the play, in a costume and everything. I was able to record this one with my nokia, even though i was 'in' it as well, helping keep the shepherds in place, ha ha.

Today we had 'carols round the tree' at nursery school. - i got to see pumpkin sing and dance some unbearably cute songs. We couldn't record it, natch, but there was a DVD made earlier in the week, so i will get to purchase and take one home for better half to see.

I ♥ Christmas. This is SO MUCH FUN. :)

Christmas has come early...

and you know you're domesticated when:

You get excited about getting a  vacuum cleaner for Christmas. That's really sad actually...

I have a Dyson.

I have the DC03, the so-called 'lightweight' older one - its a few years old now, got it in 03. I've always had a Dyson -before that, it was the really old DC01.

I hate it. Its heavy, its hard to push, it hurts my neck. It sucks, and it works, but meh. Dyson isnt all its hyped up to be. Not after a few years of use, and not at that extortionate price, anyway.

Today, i got a little bagless Vax Astrata off ebay for next to nothing. Yay.

It sucks too.
I can push it without pain.

I am happy.

This new house is much less dirty/dusty than the old one - the old one was 15 feet from a very busy road. This one isnt. One more reason to live in a maisonette off the busy road. YES.

:D

proper update: we're in and on, heh

Back broken and covered in bruises - have worked faster than a striped ass ape, as they say back home, for 4 days so far.  Ah the new house ROCKS. Close to everything, so nice inside, am so happy. So very happy. Could squee, really. Will take pics when it's all de-boxed. Living room still looks like a bomb went off...

Virgin promise they'll mend the landline tomorrow - we'll see.

They also owe me about 60 minutes worth of refunds for calling 0800 and 0845 numbers on my orange mobile - at 35p/min, that's ouchie! Gotta send them my orange bill when i get it, they'll give it back to me on the virgin bill etc. Meh. And the remote doesn't work with the brand new set top box they sent me. Typical Telewest really. Er i mean Virgin, yeah that's it.

Gawd i missed teh intarwebs - taking care of biz on my nokia just wasn't the same. I mean, i could post and email and stuff, but typing took so long, so utterly very long even with predictive text. Still, loving my N95, though the web app eats the memory up til you have to reboot after about 15 mins. Must look into opera mini when i get time.

Glad to be back. If you posted anything important in the last 5 days that you want me to see, link it. There's no way i can read my f-list back 5 days, it'll break my brain, never mind taking a week to do :/
