Makes me think of this (I’ve watched too much Parks and Rec recently)
I’m going to get a deck of Fluxx on recommendation from @Gnometorious from a local game shop I just discovered later, in order to take it to play when I visit my sister in hospital.
also going to get her a copy of ‘Alias Grace’ so she has something to read.
been a very difficult week, even more so than usual. not feeling as awful today, perhaps because of the sun.
Might see if I can hack a supersoaker to shoot beans
I admit I am really, really grumpy when Mr B is ill. Partly because he is a terrible patient and always makes out like he’s at death’s door. But mainly because I already carry the lion’s share of the mental load and I don’t get to drop that when I’m ill (which is mercifully rare). As in the kids will still demand stuff of me; I will still need to remember and remind the rest of them who needs to be where, when, what they need for school, what’s for dinner, what jobs need doing etc. I can’t check out in the same way he can. Also, my parents are totally “pull yourself together” types about illness so that’s probably filtered down.
But were the load more even, I like to think I’d be more sympathetic. So your boyfriend should be too.
I do tell him it should motivate him to take good care of himself as I would clearly be no use if he became seriously unwell
Just like to congratulate last night’s IvorDewdney for cooking some sausages to have cold in sandwiches at work. What a great lad.
Millionaires shortbread, but with raspberries in the caramel
- Weird and wrong
You can have dried raspberry in the chocolate, but anything more than that is a step too far
Sounds tasty but you can’t upgrade perfection.
I hope you both enjoy Fluxx What deck did you get? We have the Adventure Time one.
Alias Grace is good! Not sure why I’ve still not watched the adaptation
Listening to Pedro The Lion
Off to work until 11
Left the baby with his grandparents and sneaking off to enjoy some early autumn nature
Did I already say I’m working until 11 and I’m not enjoying my job atm?
This morning i wrote a reimagined ‘lore’ of Sugawara transforming into the god Tenjin, and had multiple google tabs open including ‘ancient japan use fire arrows?’
Then I got to work found myself stabbed in the back by a co-worker. So now I am channeling Tenjin and trying to focus hard enough to bring floods and lightning to the entire borough
which Pedro? keep going back to the latest. bazan is a genius
What a great lad.
The latest, but quite into Its Hard To Find A Friend atm. Very nice and understated
I switched to the GP at hand app, and they can do it, it’s changed my life utterly
Yeah he’s sometimes at his full best when he’s at his most gentle/subtle innit
When I’m ill I generally just want to be left alone. After the first time you’ve asked me if I’m alright and been told yes, you can probably leave it unless I tell you otherwise. I generally dislike anyone fussing over me at the best of times though.
I think I then assume this is how everyone is, so if I’ve asked and been told what’s wrong but its OK / they’re just going to bed etc. I’ll leave it until further notice.
Might get seen as uncaring I suppose.
Damn! It’s shit for consistency in doctor if you’ve got something ongoing. I’m lucky that I just need pills, basically
If the raspberries are entirely covered, perhaps, but raspberries turn very quickly. Freeze dried would be best.
