A 5-post collection

Sunday, Day Zero, sloth

Thirteen total cases, the new one today is yet another import from overseas, captured in quarantine, and I'm wont to hide under a rock until the case count goes back to single figures again.

I am going to write my Instant and then take a hot bath and then sleep. Great PLN. Hope I get to go through with it.

A glimpse at the headlines:

  • Outbreaks all over the firkin place
  • Sweden now under criticism as fiscal success is paid in actual lives, and continues to be so. The "herd immunity" strategy was a colossal failure, now everyone knows it
  • Dieticians say "lay off the booze", Australians say "F*ck you"
  • Australia slow to get the Covid vaccine because we have medicinal standards that mean it has to be proven safe
  • ACT bans travellers from NSW hotspots, the traffic is stuffed up
  • Repugnicans override Muppet's veto. The cracks are definitely showing between him and his party
  • Information regarding UFO analysis set to be released in 180 days
  • People have knitted the weather to document some of 2020
  • Borders closed once more as the Covid Clusterf*ck goes for another round in NSW and Victoria

Feh. Fiction's way better.

Fun was had (reprise)

Virtuality is fun. Even when you suck at twitch gaming and you die a lot. The equipment is heavy and my slender neck couldn't handle that. I had my hardy perennial trouble with headphones because my ears be too big, so I'm not blaming them for that.

Bring on over-ear, off-head headphones that don't crush the cartilage. I know they exist, but the price is beyond common acquisitions at the moment.

Grumble, grumble, mutter, mutter.


Today, I am going to weave

Deeeeep Breath...

Today is possibly the first day where I don't have to go out and do anything or spend any money.

Well. Apart from the option of brat-fetching late in the afternoon.

My life has been turned upside-down this week because Mayhem's suspected gallstones [we still have to see whether they is or they aint] have had me all over everywhere like a mad knitter's stash.

So I forgot a few things. Didn't get around to a few things. And am madly using

I'm losing weight at last!

I started this year at 95.4kg, just a few small kilos away from 100kg. I made a resolution to lose weight and get fitter, so immediately I went out and stuffed myself for the annual new years’ rello visit.

Hubby didn’t help, either. Next night, he took me out to Sizzler’s.

Today [the 5th of Jan] is the day where I finally dipped below my starting weight. I’m now 95.2kg. You might not

Slowly Getting There

I took an actual day off, today. Well, most of a day off.

Possibly 50% of a day off.

Because a Mum’s work is never done. I can’t have a complete day off.

The dog got out and I had to go catch him. Invisible fences are looking increasingly attractive right now.

And I spent the afternoon teaching Mayhem (my eldest) that playing with the dog is fun.

That was exhausting. But fun.

But I didn’t
