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.

Happy New Years!

Happy 2006 everyone! From reading various blogs/journals, I see that most of you enjoyed your new years celebrations, yay :) I’ve read tons of entries about people having a sucky 2005 and they hope this year is better.. but I can’t say as I agree. I finished college, got my first job and first pay… read more →

ho ho ho!

Christmas was good. Karl and I didn’t get much sleep on Christmas Eve because of my excited fidgeting and the fact we were sleeping on one of those crappo airbed thingies on my Mum’s front room floor, and the kids (my younger brothers & sister) wouldn’t stop bickering.. but I got some great presents for… read more →


All he wanted was a best friend… I forgot to mention that I made a Katy fanlisting a couple of weeks ago. So, if you thing Katy is great you should check out Geekerific. Don’t you think it’s the most original name ever? And of course, you could always check out my fanlisting while you’re… read more →

Home from Holiday

I would say it’s good to be home, but it’d be a lie. :( I love being by the seaside, even in rainy Wales. I know some of you are probably bored titless by holiday posts, so I’ve prepared a comment for you to copy and paste. Because parts of it are generated randomly by… read more →

Gone Home

My Daddy has gone home again :( I think I managed to convince him to come over at Christmas, but if he doesn’t/can’t, I don’t know how long it’ll be before I see him again. I did get a picture of us (both looking exhausted) together though! Will be printing that out for my wall…… read more →


I won’t be around this week because my Dad is visiting from Belgium and I’ve not seen him in over 16 months. Oh, and feel free to join Reservation Road.… read more →

New Nephew

My updates/postings have been somewhat sporadic of late because I’m supposed to be on holiday. I’ve been working my ass off to finish a football scores/data logging database for one of the guys at work and then mid way through — it’s babysitting time. Anna was taken into hospital yesterday to be induced (she was… read more →

Dirty Geek Joke

There are advantages to being in a ‘geek’ couple: Karl: Ooh, a left boob and a right boob!Jem: My boobs are relatively positioned.Karl: Well, as long as the margins are the same..Jem: No, I think my left margin is slightly bigger than my right.Karl: So you could say that they’re marginally different?Jem: Or that I’ve… read more →

Shitty shit shit

So, this week has not been the best so far this year. I got shipped from Computer Services to the Web Design office so I could do some designing (instead of the usual developing) which is all fine and funky, but I’m so used to designing for my own specifications I end up braindead and… read more →
