If anyone's wondering, I live at FaceBook now - one liner life updates suit me better. Still reading, though.

New words
DW says "Bless you", I say "Gesundheit", this morning CA said "Blessundheit". :-)

Sexist insurers...
I've had 2 people try to sell me life assurance/serious illness cover today - one a woman, one a man. *Both* of them pointed out to me that if DW died, I'd have to work, and that if I died, he'd have to pay for a creche. Remind me again what year it is?

Crafts
I've been teaching myself to knit and crochet in the last week or two - I don't think I've done either since I was in primary school. I'm pleased with my progress - I'm sure it seemed far more complicated last time I tried. Also had a coup in a charity shop during the week and got 8 balls of nice yarn for 50c a ball! (I was calling it wool till I watched a million podcasts/youtube videos on technique and started picking up the jargon.)

I have a set of crochet patterns and have been playing with them - have made 1 placemat with a very floppy border, 2 coasters (1 round, 1 square), and am working on 2 scarves in different patterns and yarns. Yesterday I knit a whole ball of yarn (yarn, yarn, yarn) into a panel of plain, plain and purl, and ribbed, then ripped it all back once I was happy with my technique. Have to find a genuine article pattern to knit something real next - I think I'll have enough scarves once I've finished the 2 crocheted ones.

Fun, fun, fun!

I am...
Cold, wet, exhilarated and ART! :-)

Took part in the Spencer Tunick installation in Dublin this morning. Soooo much fun. My mother will die when she finds out. :-)

Wii fit
Loving the wii fit. Have been playing with discovering the alternative jogging routes the last couple of days - some very nice scenery on them.

Clocked up enough time at the weekend to turn my fit piggy bronze. :-)

More language developments...
CA has started to say "emmmm" while thinking of the answer to a question, and he's stringing more and more words together: "Mummy get blanket make tent. Daddy get up move head." He's a shocking bossy boots, but we love him. :-)

Shaving
DW shaved his beard off yesterday morning, while CA watched on. Since then, CA has pointed at the electric shaver every time he goes into the bathroom and gone: "hair hoover!" :-)

swank!
i booked us a w/e away to celebrate our anniversary. a few people told us where we were staying was swanky. until we arrived i was going "yeah, yeah, we've stayed in nice hotels before..." but this is *seriously* swanky - even in the cheapskate rooms! we nipped to the next village for lunch this afternoon cos i didn't fancy the veggie options on the barfood menu and on the way back we took the opportunity to measure the length of the driveway on the car's tacheometer - 1.3 miles! good grief!
