{walking} because I can’t run. The pain level in my back/ leg is manageable if I take painkillers regularly, but that leaves me without my exercise outlet. Fitbit tells me I walked for 82 minutes today though, and covered 4.7 miles, which seems an optimistic interpretation, but I’ll go with it. Got to help, right? […]

Saturday 30th May 2015

{watching} Bandits (amazon link). We had dinner before film, and the little ones went to bed, so we could watch something a bit more adventurous. Bruce Willis is usually a good sign that an action movie will at least be fun, although it turned out that this wasn’t really an action movie. The humour went […]

Saturday snippets 28 March 2015

{travelling} to London and back again, specifically to Maggie and Rose in Kensington. Fun venue. Tempted to redecorate now 😉 Made for a long day but was worth it. Am rather regretting carrying a small sleeping boy on the tube without making a fuss about getting a seat, as I’m now walking with a limp. […]

Saturday snippets 14 March 2015

{feeling} incredibly tired. So tired that I can’t quite see straight. (So why am I blogging instead of going to bed?) Because it’s snippets. Obviously. {enjoying} so very much experimenting with art and colour, drawing, shape and form. I’m looking at the world differently – colours are pinging out at me, and I’m spotting blossoms […]

Saturday snippets 17 January 2015

{Watching} bits of the films daughter is watching with her friends for birthday film night. Including Dirty Dancing. Such a good film. {Eating} birthday party food. {Tidying} frantically so there would be enough room for 4 teen girls to sleep in the living room. {Enjoying} discussing books with C, one of the visiting teens. Tim […]

Saturday Snippets 20 December 2014

{watching} The Santa Suit, in the hope of sparking some seasonal emotion. Starring Kevin Sorbo, sadly wearing Armani rather than leather 😉 , it’s not Miracle on 34th Street (either version) but it’s OK. Definitely filled a couple of hours quite happily {suffering} the after effects of camp lurgy. Last week was a write off […]

Saturday Snippets 15 November 2014

{thinking} it’s been an odd week. From last weekend in London, birthday celebrations for Smallest on Monday, attempting so much stuff and managing so little, via a surge of grief on Thursday and then family gathering today. I could do with a holiday. On an island. With someone else doing the cooking. Please? {grieving} again, […]

Saturday snippets 1 November 2014

{watching} Casper. We started off watching Wheels on Meals, which I was expected to be standard Jackie Chan/ Sammo Hung fare, but it turned out to actually be in chinese. After 10 minutes of Smallest requesting Small to read all the subtitles, we quit and found Casper just about to start on TV. So it […]

Saturday Snippets 25 October 2014

{watching} Cast Away. Tom Hanks really is a very good actor. Lots of opportunities for education too, as we discussed his choices throughout, how best to make fire, and what might have been in that unopened package. {reading} not a lot right now. I’m feeling a touch adrift. Big got a good looking book in […]

Saturday snippets 6 September 2014

{watching} Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Big hit with all the family except Tim, who really has seen it all before. Though even he wants a set of Falcon wings for Christmas. And who wouldn’t? With a body count rather higher than an Arnie film, I was quite pleased the little ones were playing Reading […]
