No food pictures this time. Just an apology for my absence and less than speedy response to comments. With the catsitting, I’ve been away from my own computer. While my aunt’s laptop functions just fine (with the exception of her pointlessly wireless mouse, but I solved that by bringing my own USB mouse), I can’t seem to get to actually posting anything.
Strange, that.

I’ve been cooking, though. My aunt has an oven, so I made some things with it that didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped (more on that later), a microwave for making hot chocolate, and she a decent freezer I shouldn’t get too attached to (more on that later also). I’ve also had vegan haggis (another gift from Sinead), which is fun food, with baked potatoes, which are just excellent.
There’s also this green thing I had today…
Anyway, more about all of that later. With pictures, and everything.

As far as the moving goes, I’ve still not moved properly. There’s some painting that needs to be done, which requires some help as it involves a ceiling, and after that some carpet needs replaced. Uhm, and packing. Still need to do me some of that.

With all this actual responsible housekeeping and living together I’ll be doing in the near future, I figured I should be making attempts to get some sort of organised. I’ve had this urge before, but earlier attempts generally met with little success. This time, though, I’m starting an actual home management binder. One which isn’t nearly as decorated or inspirational as the ones other people have made (the closest thing to decoration so far is the highlighters I used) because I don’t really care about those bits and no matter how much other other binder people emphasise the need for beauty and inspiration, I’m not going to cave to peer pressure. I’m too lazy for all that scrapbooking stuff and to me, elaborate dainty borders on some weekly schedule printable are just a waste of ink.
I made sure to pick a pretty binder, though. The blue Rijksmuseum thing from HEMA. But that’s just fun.
While I’m not sure yet, I think this’ll work much better for me than doing everything on the computer. This binder is much more direct. This most convenient periodic table cleaning chart (PDF file) actually has me geeking out over basic cleaning!
Weird.
There’s a first for everything, I guess.

Hmm.. the Elements of Clean… I bet my partner wishes I had downloaded that PDF that years ago… ;)
