Currently fighting con crud and probably shouldn’t be channeling kyleehenke at this point.

I normally don’t do this type of stuff, BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT. So, If you guys didn’t know, my mom is sick 😕 And recently her teeth started falling out, and she’s been in a lot of pain, and sometimes even has trouble eating, and honestly seeing her in this kinda pain kills me. With the costs of her other medical stuff, financially it’s been getting kinda hard for us. So this is where YOU GUYS come in ❤️❤️ I need your help, I can’t do this by myself , So I’ve made a gofundme in her honor, to HOPEFULLY help her out, any amount works, every cent counts, I just want to see my mom smile and have confidence and be happy again. The link is at the end of the post just incase this link doesn’t work, Share with all your friends & SIGNAL BOOST please ❤️❤️❤️ Lets hope this works! #SmileApril

Ugh, I’m sick, so I’m not wearing any makeup and I look really tired. Still, the point of this post is to show that the color swatch in my hair is getting pretty faded, which means it’s almost time to recolor it! What color should I do? Here’s a link to the different colors to choose from:

I just did Atomic Turquoise. I already have Cotton Candy Pink and After Midnight and could do one of those. But should I do a different color? Remember it has to be work-friendly, so colors like Electric Lizard or Psychedelic Sunset are probably not options. I’m thinking maybe New Rose or Voodoo Blue. What do you think?

Tiredness Overwhelms

It’s 2:30pm on Friday afternoon. I have just come home from work early. My body is still running at a ridiculous temperature. It made no sense to sit at my desk any longer, potentially exposing co-workers to whatever bug I seem to be carrying.

London was an adventure yesterday. I woke up with a raging temperature at about 4am (after going to bed at 9 the night before). I couldn’t call in sick because others were relying on me, so slept fitfully until 5:30, after which I got up and downed two nurofen (ibuprofen), and two paracetamol. After half an hour I felt vaguely ok, although a bit deaf. Ibuprofen does that to me - it takes pain away, but makes me feel like my head is full of cotton wool.

I somehow made it through the day on client-site in London, and got home at about 8:30pm. As is usual, I started washing up the moment I walked in the door, and got told off for it - so I stopped. This morning - surprise, surprise - none of the washing up had happened, so I set about clearing it before leaving the house for work.

I get in again half an hour ago, and guess what. Sink is full again, and dirty plates, mugs, and dishes are stacked everywhere around it. I think the rest of the family has gone shopping (it’s half term).

I just finished washing up before writing this. My entire life seems to revolve around washing up. It’s the first thing I do in the morning, the first thing I do when I get home from work, and the last thing I do at night. It drives me NUTS.

I shouldn’t really have been at work over the last couple of days. There is an unwritten rule that if you’re sick you should stay away - because you will make others sick. That rule is “unwritten” on purpose - because there are exceptions to it. Apollo astronauts threw up all over the capsule - they didn’t get to stay in bed though.

I’m hoping against hope that I’ll get a chance to relax this weekend. The grass needs cutting, the hedge at the front of the house needs cutting, and all of the school clothes will probably need to be washed. I’ll also have to go and buy food to make packed lunches next week, and if previous weekends are anything to go by, I’ll have to buy, and prepare all food to feed everybody throughout the weekend. And then wash it all up.

I need a vacation from life as I know it.

And a pizza.


I need some axolotl help. My baby Percival is covered in this white bumps on his body. I don’t know what they are. He seems to be acting fine, but when I went to go feed him a worm today he went to eat and then kept spitting it out and trying to eat it again before getting tired of it. I don’t know if he’s having trouble eating or if he’s just not hungry or what. But I’m a little worried. I haven’t tested water Params or anything, but it is a cycled tank. I just did a 90% water change and noticed the bumps after I put him back. I haven’t changed his diet or anything lately, the only difference is he’s now at my house instead of at college. We’ve been home for about three weeks now, and I admit I haven’t been putting his light on as much as I usually do. (Meaning it’s maybe a full day every other day instead of during the day time every day.)
Any idea what could be going on? axolotlapothecary lottalotls lotlfun sillyaxolotls fishcommunity
