This Week #50

Gwyn y gwel y fran ei chyw - the crow sees its chick as white.
Life This Week

Nothing exciting to report this week. Work, Home, Chores... and Repeat.

We started doing some painting downstairs, just to freshen the walls up, and I've gone into comping overdrive so I can start putting things away for Christmas. All the kids are covered, but I need some more adult orientated presents, plus stuff to donate as raffle prizes, etc. So if you're hosting a giveaway, you can be fairly sure of seeing me there!

I suppose the only other notable thing this week was that the pushchair finally gave up the fight. To be fair, it's had constant use for 20 months and only cost £25 from Aldi. I ordered the same type of pushchair to replace it on eBay; it's new but has storage wear. I can't see Marianna objecting. (BTW, if you're looking for a new pushchair, the Which? pushchair guides cover everything you need to know!)

This Week, I 'ave Been Mostly...

☆ READING: There was an article on HuffPost this week which really annoyed me; I wrote up the reasons why.

☆ WRITING: An overview of my work this month. I figured it would make more sense to keep it all in a monthly update, rather than having bits all over the place.

☆ WATCHING: iZOMBIE. It's a murder mystery show - with zombies! I was dubious at first because pretty much all the comic book based TV shows I've ever seen have sucked, but I'm actually really enjoying this one.

 LISTENING: This week's #FridayFrivolity theme was superheroes. I decided to write about my favourite sidekick, Jimmy Olsen, who just happens to be the subject of one of my favourite songs by the Spin Doctors:

He's faster than a bullet, stronger than a train;
He's the one who got lucky, got his cape around Miss Lois Lane.
I can't believe my dilemma is real -  I'm competing with the man of steel.
(Jimmy Olsen's Blues)

☆ WEARING: Oversized cardigans. Part style statement, part blanket you can wear...

☆ EATING: Babybel. I bought some for Marianna when I went food shopping but she didn't like them. Obviously I just had to eat them myself instead... ;)

☆ REVIEWING: The Tangle Teezer brush.

On the Blog

I've changed the blog commenting system from Blogger default to Disqus. Verdict's still out on whether or not it's staying, but I'm liking it so far. In other news, I put together a list of linkies to join up with on Wednesdays, and wrote a post on the Rowlands branch of my family tree.
