Upholding an illusion of normalcy...


This is mainly a personal blog. I'm 34, New Zealander, write a bit of fic (sunmontue on AO3, ff.net and LJ). I post a lot of stuff about my life (kids, work, baking and gardening and lists involving what I want to try and achieve in a day which always includes writing but seldom gets crossed off...)

I am an equal opportunity shipper - my favourites being: Drarry, Kurtofsky, Brian/Justin, Sterek. But I will read anything that takes my fancy really.

If you somehow got here because of the Lego stuff, you might want to consider following my side-blog (teenwolfandlegofusion) instead of this one, as it's *just* the Lego goodness without everything else. (Unless you like everything else, which is cool too...)

Eeee! :D Exciting! :D
I’ve just bought it. Not sure how to get the free kindle version onto my husband’s kindle but I will wait the ~9 days for it to arrive… (and take it with me on holiday to read at my mother-in-laws while on holiday because there is no internet or cell-coverage.)

It’s going to be a polar bear filled day. Walked the boys to crèche and from his pocket Wax pulls out his polar bear. ‘Look mum! Polar bear!’ He knows he’s not allowed to take toys from home to crèche. So I now have to look after a tiny polar bear all day.

Those of you with small children will know that having a shower alone (or without an audience) is a thing of luxury. Wax and Max were called away to get dressed but Wax left his tiny polar bear to watch me - maybe he thinks I get lonely?

"Don’t pirate tv shows! Watch them legally on tv or something"

I live in New Zealand. Literally most of the shit I watch has not, and may not ever, be released on New Zealand Television

AND even if I wanted to I can’t watch shit legally online because ‘SORRY THIS SITE IS NOT AVAILABLE IN YOUR COUNTRY’

I’M LOOKING AT YOU NETFLIX
