Had a lovely (but long) day in London yesterday, but totally worth the hours. Penguins of Madagascar is hysterical and definitely will entertain all ages. Personally, I think John Malkovitch deserves a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in it. The kids had a smashing time, they got goodie bags for having brought their penguin toys with them, and although I think my friend Naomi and I may have laughed louder than anyone my children, they loved the film and the attention.

The Barbican is currently running children's animation workshops/drop-in sessions, and my two got to make their own animated animals and learn about the filming process. I'm told their "feature" may be available on-line at some point, so will link to it if it is. (And when I say feature, I'm talking minutes, here:)

The divine [livejournal.com profile] cleo_jay joined us at the pub, where the kids were equal parts squicked and fascinated by the game hanging up in the place. The food was good and the prosecco inexpensive, so it was win-win for everyone!

Aaaaaaand, because we were right next to the Museum of London, we stopped in to say hello to this handsome fellow.

SherlockPaddington


We then met the multi-talented [livejournal.com profile] joan_waterhouse, who'd been at RADA showing them her stuff, and we all caught up with the latest fandom gossip, exchanged early Christmas presents, and talked a load of shit for the next few hours, before the kids and I had to hop on a NW-bound train.

Can't wait to meet up with all the loonies again and do this some more over the next few months.

Hello flist! I've missed you, but I have been keeping my eye on you.

So, lots of things happening but first of all, I must say a big thank you to everyone who's picked up my birthday prompt by contributing to Operation H/D Support and [livejournal.com profile] snitches_n_smut. It's not long till the big day, and I'm basking in Quidditch-love everytime I check LJ!

In other news, Mr Nursedarry got the second job he applied for (Siemens Windpower), as well as the first (something in Salisbury, which would have been a long commute!), and has decided to accept the Siemens one. He'll start in mid-June.

But before that, we're moving off the base (bye-bye RAF!) and into Reading. We've found a great house to rent whilst we look for something to buy, and the kids start their new school after the half-term at the beginning of June.

And I'm meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] being_here and [livejournal.com profile] katerina_black next week! Wo0T!!!

Finally, I can report I've been a busy fangirl and will have three fics posting in fests in the near future. They're all pretty much my usual fare - expect the boys to pull the rip-cords on their parachutes only to find an anvil comes out.

I had to abandon Glompfest which broke my heart, and I feel awful about it, but we've ended up needing to move a month early and I wouldn't have had time to write my name (even this post has been delayed), let alone a fic.

BUT, all that does mean I might have time to write for the next installment of Operation H/D Support. What do you think? A little emo/angry next time? *ducks*

EDT: I'm an idiot and forgot to mention the lovely jellybeans given me by [livejournal.com profile] fireflavored, [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12 and [livejournal.com profile] alaana_fair. THANK YOU, LADIES!

Hugs to you all, and see you next week ;)

Hello!

I'm back from my lovely weekend away with [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black and [livejournal.com profile] accioscar. I live near London, have a HM Forces rail card, and never miss a chance to schmooze with fangirls. We went to two theatre productions - one, a Sondheim musical, and one a black comedy. I'm not a huge lover of Sondheim, but the cast were great. The play we saw later in the evening was amazing, and the acting was just in-your-face superb. I got to see Rupert Someone-from-Merlin in his pants, and got a smile and a nod from Colin Someone-from-Merlin after taking his picture with a near-hysterical Scar.

I also laughed my head off, drank a lot of lovely cocktails, and ate some yummy food! I finished up the weekend at Kings Cross, waving bye-bye to Mr Nursedarry and my kids, as they were catching the train to Scotland to spend half-term with my in-laws. (Better them than me, I say!) I'm working this week, as my boss is also away, but wow, I've got the house all to myself! RESULT!

I would like to thank EVERYONE who has left me lovely comments on the H/D meme. I'm glad my fic tickles your funny bone - I've always said that my stories may sometimes lack poignancy and poetry, but if you need a piano dropped on your head, I'm your gal! I am also so glad to have had the opportunity to meet so many of the great fen who play in my sandbox! And I look forward to organising more get-togethers in future! I really do enjoy everything I do in fandom, and I am so grateful for your nice words. ♥s to you all!


Now, for two compltetely random questions:
1. Does anyone know where [livejournal.com profile] acromantular is these days? I need to speak with her somewhat urgently. It's nothing bad, just one of those "doh!" moments we've had at [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix. Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] anthimaeria!

2. Does anyone know how to take lots of jpgs and make a slide-show that can be posted on/linked to LJ? I've seen it done before, but I've no idea about those things and am keen to learn!


Okay... how about some gooey kissy-fic!


I got a beautiful and touching - AND HOT - gift called Of Dreams and Reality by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] kamerreon. It's full of near-trust, typical boy-communication, and even a bit of forgiveness. Did I mention it was hot?

Here is my submission, written for the prompt-tastic [livejournal.com profile] baterina_1234.

Title: Suspend Your Disbelief
Rating: PG13 (Huh, what?!)
Wordcount: ~1350
Warning: Someone’s a bit tied up at the moment.
Summary: Time for a little Q & A. Fluffy kink-kissing.
Note: This was also written using a prompt given me by [livejournal.com profile] hp_positions for their Valentines Shag (see end of fic).

To my lovely husband,

Happy Christmas, sweetie.

I love you.











And a Merry Christmas to everyone deployed around the world who can't be with their families tonight. We're thinking of you.

Right, if nothing else, you might stop here to look at the lovely Fuyu no Semi blow-job icon.

So...it's been awhile - hello to old and new friends! *waves* I don't post often, but you can trust hope that what I do have to say is of vital cosmic significance....

Where was I?

Oh yes, firstly, thank-you to [livejournal.com profile] treacle_tartlet, [livejournal.com profile] cassie_black12, [livejournal.com profile] nicevenn, and [livejournal.com profile] brissygirl for the cute Yorkie V gifts!

Secondly, how about all of this wonderful fic and art that's been posting lately, huh?! I'm way behind, but will get through it - my must read list grows daily.

Speaking of the "F" word, my [livejournal.com profile] hd_holidays and [livejournal.com profile] hd_remix fics are now with my first beta-of-awesome waiting to be systematically taken apart so I can do a Steve Austin on them. I'm halfway through [livejournal.com profile] hp_yule_balls, which is proving slightly trickier because it's not only for a friend that I absolutely love, but it's also a genre and pairing I've not written much of (any of, really) before. I've recruited two very able writers to carry cheer-lead me through it, and I'm certainly loving the process, even if the end result is Bantha poo-doo.

Thirdly, I'm all excited because I'm meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] dark0feenix and anyone else who's interested in London on Tuesday! I'm really looking forward to a day of shopping, lunch and gossip. Please let me know if you'd like to join us!!!

Fourthly, happy birthday to my toy-boy for tomorrow! He'll be a whole 30 years old!! WooOT! Nothing especially big planned to celebrate it (unless getting my flu jab counts) and anyway, we're all far too damn busy in the next few weeks. He's being deployed again in early November till the middle of January, so it's all go here getting stuff sorted out and recruiting slaves friends to help out as my life doesn't actually get LESS busy during that time. Where is Molly Weasley when I need her?!

And finally, there's no way I'm sitting through another SCD Results Show and have already looked up who's gone out. Not my first choice, but it was bound to happen. My first choice was the other person in the bottom two, who never fails to make me want to smash something upside his/her head.

That is all.

95 years old today!
yes, you read that right

This is one of my favourite pictures of him, taken in the early 1940s. He's seen and done so much and I can only hope that I live such a long and fulfilling life.




Happy Birthday, Dad - I love you!

who today was presented with an Operational Service Medal by the Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire. We even got to mock him on the BBC news.

I love you, sweetheart. You earned it.
