Parenting archive

I became a parent in November 2009 and, as the cliché goes, my world turned upside down. PHP posts turned to pregnancy, midnight gaming turned to midnight (and 1am, and 2am, and ...) feeds. Here lies documented tales of poop, boobs, toddler tantrums and the nitty gritty that goes with being Mum.

New Harry Potter Ending

Karl has formulated a truly British alternate HP ending for those of you disappointed by what the last book had to offer: It flooded, the wands were used to make a raft, all the wands shorted out in the water and opened a gateway into a hitherto unknown dimension, and they were all sucked in.… read more →

What a Bloody Day

Today has been one bloody disaster after another. It’s taking all my might not to use the “f” word, I tell ya. First, we were due a flat inspection this morning at 10:30 (because we live in a private “managed” property). We got up at 8:30 to give the place a bit of a tidy… read more →

So There We Go

My Mum mentioned to me this evening that I never did follow up my entry on the swans and she’s right. I realised that I’ve not followed up on any of my entries for months, barely discussing anything but superficial crap and the Internet. So here I am, telling you how things are with me…… read more →


I am an in such a fucking foul mood this evening. So many stupid things… I spent part of this afternoon re-doing work that I spent almost three hours yesterday polishing off (don’t ask). My face broke out in spots down one side last weekend and they won’t piss off. I look fifteen again. I… read more →

Another Cold, etc.

I’ve got another bloody cold. I’m hoping it won’t affect my testicles this time. None the less I’m playing it safe and drinking lots of orange juice (vitamin c ftw.) Talking of “ftw”, I’m thinking of making this ftw (that’s ‘for the win’) t-shirt my next syswear purchase. I think it’s only fair that after… read more →

Aunty Mariooo Had a Long Day

I’m not one to talk about my day usually but I feel like rambling a bit right now… :) I went to see my niece and nephew (and their mum, obviously) this morning and was greeted with hugs and smiles and childish giggling. There’s nothing quite like ending a working week by spending time with… read more →

What a Wonderful Day

I’m having a great day so far. I opened my inbox to a very pretty “Happy Valentines” photograph from Han (who I’m yet to thank, oops) and an e-mail from my mummy telling me that her flowers are beautiful. I had actually forgotten that I’d ordered them, so it was like a big double surprise… read more →

Ho ho ho, and all that!

I am sure if most of you took a guess at what I’d been doing for the past 5 days since I last blogged you’d probably say something like “spending Christmas with your family!” Of course, it’d be a huge lie; I’ve actually been playing Animal Crossing non-stop for about a week. After doing the… read more →

exhausted :x

It’s funny: one of the reasons I quit my old job was because it was leaving me mentally drained, exhausted and frustrated at the end of the day. I stopped blogging because all I wanted to do was rant about certain people making things very awkward. Now I’ve got my new job I come home… read more →
