Hello lovely flisters

I come bearing these great pictures of surfing dolphins. I like to think they are surfing for sheer joy.

I had an epiphany about motherhood. It has been a long slog - 15 months, plus 9 months prep time, but I finally accept my changed life (more or less!). My spirit has been crushed, my individuality obliterated; now I can say, "Let's leave that one, that's not a toy", for the 50th millionth time with scarcely a twitch of the eye. Progress indeed - see me revel in the joys of mothering.

I have a friend whose kid is a couple of months younger than mine. We met up for coffee yesterday and laughed long and hard about the trials of it all. I really needed that.

Have been horrendously sick, and so has the sausage. I've been whiling away the days in a sick daze reading sga_santa...but then I re-remembered the Archive of Our Own and now I'm happily mired in Remus/Sirius, with a thousand million SGA and HP fics to look forward to. This is why I'm so unproductive. Well, that and the perpetual exhaustion of a parent whose offspring doesn't sleep well.

I'm up to date with Being Human, and if anyone wants to squee about how much they are enjoying it in comments, then I would love to squee along with you. It is so different from S1, but I'm loving it all the same. Is saying, "So dark, brrr," a spoiler?

We've given up on the field idea for getting handfasted - ironically, it works out more expensive than hiring an actual building. The village hall we've found is tiny though - cue lots of agonised wailing every time we think we have finished the guest list, then one of us will remember another cousin that absolutely must be invited. There's going to be about 3 people I actually want there at this rate.

Right, chips for dinner for me. DB is out at aikido, which means I get to kick back, forget I'm a nutritionist, and eat chips whilst mainlining fic :)

Two things - just saw District 9, which I can't recommend highly enough; the freshest sci-fi film I've seen in a long time. Apparently the lead dude had never acted before and adlibbed a lot of his lines, which is astonishing because he was so good. also - awesome cgi, as in just enough, cut so cleverly with life action, I kept forgetting it was there.

Secondly, I saw a billboard for Being Human!! They must face their demons in January! Demons!! Is that a hint for the direction of Season 2? And - IT IS JANUARY NOW!!!
