I'm home! And damn it feels good.
Christmas Eve: Sprat wanted me to help wrap the last of the presents. I asked if she was sure she wanted MY help. Apparently she was. So we settled down to wrap. First thing I did was accidentally tear the wrapping paper. She then suggested I cut sticky tape as we had run out of tape dispenser tape. I cut a few strips and then broke the sticky tape.
The presents eventually got wrapped :)
Christmas Day: Sprat and I were settled in her room (I'm set up in her room as I usually am when home) and I was about the hit the 3d. I felt bad listening to the sounds of preparation going on for Christmas dinner, so I walked out and stood next to my mother who was chopping tiny chillies. As I was asking her if she needed help with anything, I somehow managed to cop chilli juice in the eye while she was chopping. Staggered to the bathroom to rinse it out. Returned, stood on the other side of the kitchen and asked if help was needed. It wasn't. Then I got a huge blister sharpening Very Small Small Girl's new coloured pencils. Josh suggested I probably shouldn't have gotten out of bed.
I've already written about the backup malarky. I'm getting a friend who knows what he's doing to try to merge my backups from the 28th of November with whatever the current state of the sites are after I've dumped the databases of the mostly afflicted sites. Sometime after silly season maybe. Not happy about having to fix my ssl certificate for Friendica again. It was a pain in the system. I'm starting to think there's a conspiracy theory afoot and someone wants some of my sites offline for some idiotic reason I can't begin to fathom (I know, I'm not that important, but this is the second backup malarky in a relatively short space of time :)).
Now, without further ado, the first of many photo posts (most of which will be unedited because I iz lazy).
