Weekend Wonderings

Ok, so this is a bit of a cheat post, but, you know, I have a two month old, so give me a break. I had to have my shower in three separate segments this morning due to said two month old and her incessant screaming, so you’re damned lucky to be getting a post at [...]

Any Other Photo {Claire and Jon}

When Claire, she of Zen and the Smashed Wedding Cake sent me her Any Other Photo I was at work, and had to do an “I’ve got hayfever (in February)” sniffle.  Look at it!  Look at the love, look at Jon’s hands, look at the moment.  And then read the description.  I defy you, readers, not to have a “hayfever” [...]

The Year Of Fear

The thing about turning thirty is, that no matter how hard you try to avoid it, it makes you take stock. You can avoid it all you like, you can stare it in the face and say defiantly “I’ll change when I want to change, look back when I want to look back, be nostalgic [...]

Weekend Wonderings

I don’t like films all that much.  Not compared to books.  Usually in a film I get confused and end up asking Mr K what just happened and can he rewind and it’s just not relaxing.  And films usually screw up books’ storylines.  We know of Team AOW’s love for The Hunger Games.  I really [...]
