Yuletide Prep

A 5-post collection

It's the day for laying in supplies, storage of same, and unfucking the house without paid assistance.

If I can convince the family to do some of the storage and unfucking, I might be ahead of the game. Stop laughing at me in that tone of voice.

It's almost 6AM. I am going to try for the Instant before I go rocketting off on my assorted adventures.

I already know I'm coming home with six kilos of prawns and a big ol' ham. It's the rest of it that is giving me a concern. I haven't found anything colourful or nice to wear for the feast day, and all my old stuff is falling apart because cheap clothes do that, and some part of me wants to add a bunch of veggies so I can get back to having plants in my diet and AAAAUUUGH.

I always go bonkers during Crimbolio. This is just the minor manifestation of the same.

...also have to remember to feed the cats...

UPDATE - I am having some shenanigans with the forum so used prompts are being tagged with a notification until I can get this mess unfucked. Thank you for your patience.

I think my little Tiefling is actually done! I'm still painting the Kobold, because Sisu, but that's probably not turning up on my Patreon. Because Kobolds are tiny, difficult to paint, worse to make look good, and I'm just over here trying my best.

It's beginning to look a lot like summer

While I haven't seen the obligatory dead snake, we did narrowly avoid a red-bellied black as it was crossing a road, so I'm going to count it.

A Change of PLN

I love using Sir Terry Pratchett's feegle word 'pln' for a plan that is not... the best-cemented plan on the old drawing board.

Today's pln was to go and fetch Chaos back from her stay with Capt S. Bring along KIABIL to fix some shit, eat a lunch and finally go home.

Nope.
