I'm sure this will amuse most people

 I've only had the dog for 1 and a half days before stepping bare foot in her shit. Yuk! 

The great escape

I left Arwen in the kitchen this morning whilst I was getting Flo ready for pre school. Suddenly Arwen was in the room with us. The clever girl can squeeze through the bars! Won't be long before she's too big but fit the time being I'm using cardboard. 


We've finally done it

Here's little Arwen!

Should I walk past this guy?

 After dropping of Flo this morning I spotted this guy and considered for a minute whether or not I should walk past him.

I concluded that he wasn't a biosecurity officer about to lockdown the whole town but in fact someone in fancy dress as Cate Blanchett in Hot Fuzz or maybe a car spray painter for the garage next door.

Such an idiot

I want a spare pair of batteries for my lightsaber as when left in the sabre they slowly discharge. 

It needs special powerful batteries as normal AA don't work. I've now ordered new sets twice of what I thought we AA batteries but what actually turns up are these monsters. FFS! They're not cheap. I've ordered what I now think are AA from the US but they might not turn up till December. Grrr... 

Two days left

My commute

 Since Covid19 started appearing in the UK and we were put in quarantine i've tried to keep up my step count so have been doing a lot of walking. Since Flo's been allowed back at the nursery i've been taking the hour before I have to start work at 9:30 to walk around our local parks.  

Here I am today.  

Not another soul

Nice and quiet


I'd normally be crammed on an overly full commuter train at that point.  Who would want to go back to that when you can do this instead?

 I think this kickstarter took around 18 months to arrive.  I think I drunk ordered though as it's only one die. Given the amount it cost,  it's not even a set.

It is nice though, oversized for a normal D6, but also reassuringly heavy.

Sadly it's probably going to go back into it's bag / box and never get used. 

Playing with one of the filters on my phone

There's an AR (Augmented Reality) app on my phone and one of the options is trying out makeup.  The phone's camera and software analyse your face and then suggest what makeup you should use.

Here's my analysed face

Is the score of 86 in Puffiness good or bad?

I would...

Parenting is easy

 April went for brunch with a friend on Sunday and was gone all morning.

I had these two on my own, nobody died.  It was actually fairly harmless.
