Sanity optional

I’ve re-written my intro to this post approximately 97868 times. Not because I don’t know what to say but because I have so very much to say and at one point the intro was longer than the post and so technically no longer an intro, surely?  I’n going to save my thoughts for a comment [...]

Any Other Photo {Emilie and John}

***Enjoy the bank holiday weekend, readers…we’ll be taking a break and back on Tuesday, bright and early.  See you then!***   This AOP makes me grin.  A lot.  It was taken seven years ago and is full of adventure and excitement and memories.  It was taken by chance.  It’s full of secrets.  It hasn’t been [...]

Confessions of an Imperfect Bride

So many of you know and love Katie. She of Simplified Science and World’s Most Beautiful Smile fame. I loved Katie anyway, she’s pretty awesome. And then I read this. A wedding report with a whole paragraph on bum-clenching. A wedding report that says, ‘hey, it’s ok’. Everything is ok.’ A wedding report written with [...]

Weekend Wonderings

I first saw this when India Knight tweeted it. At first glance, it’s not typical AOW fare.  Please bear with me. There are two videos, here.  It’s imperative that you watch them in order. Are you sitting comfortably? The first video is an explanation of how astronauts go to bed when there’s no gravity.  It’s a video by [...]
