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...)

Tagged: baking adventuresdid I ever tell you about the time I nearly set my oven on fire...actually there was no nearly about itthere was a fire in the bottom of my ovenwhy do my friends ask me things like this???

I have to… Quintuple (?) the recipe for this wedding cake tier. So that means 1kg of butter, 1kg of sugar and 1kg of flour. Along with 15 eggs. It better freaking work. *sigh*

Ugh. Went to bed at 9, read until 10. Had to get up at 10.30 for Max (nightmare). Get to sleep. 1.30 Wax screams out and I spend 30 minutes trying to settle him. Tell him I need to go back to bed. 2am Hubs takes over (much to Wax’s vocal displeasure). Suggest he comes into our bed. Spend next 45 minutes getting kicked and punched. Put him back in his own bed. Screaming resumes. 4am Hubs suggests I go and sleep on the couch in the lounge just so I can get some sleep. Except the boys woke at 6am and came and woke me up.

PS: I am eating pumpkin pie for breakfast tomorrow because I am an adult and no one can tell me any different…

Tomorrow… if it’s as productive as today I’ll count it a success.

Ugh. Cooking dinner. Forgot I had to do that. Still doing a whole bunch of other stuff - not all the stuff I *want* to do today, but stuff that still needs to be done.

Also went to go and do more TWALF stuff and I really need to tidy up quite a lot before I even start - I have 4 days at home ahead of me to make it a worthwhile activity.

Washing machine on. Dishwasher going. Drier going… Come out to fold washing and voila! Ah well, it’s all their clothes anyway.
