Leyland's Tour

A 12-post collection

Saturday, What a Day

So I started this morning with a double spider attack. A relatively tiny [1.5inch across] Huntsman spider decided to jump on me whilst I was in the shower. It effectively vanished until I rinsed my hair and climbed onto my hand.

Obviously, it had to die.

We set off after this to the Parkrun with Beloved's friend from the gender support group. Whom I shall henceforth name as Ms Awesome.

I managed to walk 4K this week. Wahoo!

Then, following a good brunch, Beloved and I set off to MeMum's for some good old-fashioned TECH SUPPORT!

Yaaaayyyy....

I only recently got back to stream.

I will post and advertise my story, and then probably haul off to a well-deserved napnap.

Let's go.

Thursday, Round Round Run Around...

I'll run around!

Immediately after Miss Chaos is on the bus to school today, I am taking off to MeMum's for paperwork-related missions and perhaps sorting out tech issues.

All that fun stuff.

Poor Beloved came home long about 3AM so she could catch some semblance of sleep. The demo of the thing is today and after that, she needs a day off.

Which will be at least partially spent at Chaos' graduation.

Which also means I have to cancel tomorrow's stream.

Thursday, Leyland's Tour

Today, all bets are off regarding output. I am driving/escorting my love all across the country so we can all deal with funerary arrangements and organising the final farewell.

I'm taking my iPad on the off chance that I may have an opportunity to add a sentence or two to the continuing story of a devilborn whose love life is going to hell.

...better known to everyone in the loop as A Devil's Tale.

It's a security blanket and we both

Sunday, Game Night? And Run Around

We're visiting Capt. S today so I may not be streaming game(s) tonight. Be warned.

Immediately after I do the publish cycle, I am getting spruced up to visit ailing fam. I might take the iPad with me because I can work on it offline and not need to worry about data costs.

So I might make some progress on the wedding outfit too. Fingers crossed.

Intent sails out the window if my brain and bod decide to nap in the

Sunday, Mother's Day

Today is the last Mother's Day I celebrate for myself. Rennie's Day, as I have just discovered, is the third Sunday of April. Could have been informed sooner, but... meh.

Beloved is taking over the accepting of Coffee Cups, gimcrack jewelry, and macaroni arts with beaming smile and that weird soft feeling one gets when the smols make a thing just for her.

Motherhood is many things, and one of those things is wearing a macaroni necklace like it's diamonds and feeling

Saturday, Party Shenanigans

We're off on the Leyland's Tour today. Gathering the fam for social stuff and good times. Not exactly helped by the fact that I slept wrong and my back is an achey mess at the moment.

Lovely.

Nevertheless, I shall look fantastic when we're there.

The PLN goeth thusly:

  1. Do my stream shenanigans
  2. Wake my Beloved and perhaps Mayhem and Chaos
  3. Get dolled up
  4. Exeunt

Let's get rolling.

Wednesday, Wordpress and shenanigans

I have PLNs today. PLNs to take Mayhem all the way out to MeMum's and then help her move a heavy object to a place where the neighbours won't nick it.

IF I get around to doing a Wordpress Wednesday, I shall likely concoct a topic on either of the drives. There, or back again.

Beloved is off to get her face zapped again, today. So we should be done with both of our respective shenanigans about roughly together. And then it's

Saturday, Leyland's Tour

I have written the story. I have the bikkie cooking in the background. All my normal activities are now orbiting Beloved's schedule and on hold for MeMum.

And later on this week, we are getting stuff to make a door betwixt the official front of the house [master bedroom, lounge] and the rest of the house. Just so Pippi can't leap into the greater outdoors and put her life at risk.

Also so that we can have nice furniture in the front

Sunday, Shenanigans!

Today, I do my stream EARLY. So I can then get ready to go on a Leyland's Tour for family meet and birthmas partay.

This may make D&D later tonight "interesting".

Nevertheless, I am making certain that I have the time windows to do this. Yay.

So my PLN is thus:

  1. Do the story stream
  2. Get ready for the day
  3. Travel all over the countryside
  4. Happy birthday!
  5. Travel all the way back over the countryside
  6. SLEEP! For the love of

Saturday, not counting it because reasons

There's shenanigans afoot. I tried to warn Beloved that this would happen, but Beloved has chronic Doesn'tListenItus.

Eeeeh...

So now I'm on a mission to write an Instant before we have to haul off and get a present for a party that I was certain was happening some significant weeks away. Yay. And then attend the party.

Hocus pocus, I need to focus.

Let's go.

Running around, today

It's Australia day, so the entire family is gathering in Scenic Coominya for the traditional burned offerings.

I didn't get anything done on my side-projects yesterday because my writing absorbed my personal energy (and that's okay). Plus the big plan of the evening was to visit Carl's Jr to try their carboriffic fare for my first feast day in a fortnight.

Burgers: delicious, juicy, and prone to fallout both liquid and solid.

Chips: less like a salt lick and more like a

Merry Roadtrip!

I'm off again into the mountainous, twisting, animal-corpse-scattered roads of Australia on a day-long trip all the way from Tullagawoopwoop to my home sweet home.

Just like before, I'm taking breaks when safe, every two hours or so. Driving carefully at all occasions and staying below the speed limit at all times.

Unlike before, I have a part of my car that is currently held in place with packing tape and a prayer. If it even looks like it's coming loose at
