It’s world book day today (in the UK) and my son’s school did a thing where the kids were allowed to go in dressed as characters in books.  In reality this turned out to be that in the reception class my son is in (4-5-year olds) most girls showed up dressed in Disney princess dresses and most boys in Marvel/DC superhero outfits.  In the school yard I overheard one of the boys make a comment to a girl that she couldn’t be a princess since she had short hair.  The bell rang that instant and all the kids ran off so I was just left there steaming with a piece on my mind I couldn’t get out there and then.  So here’s Disney Princesses with short hairstyles.

I’ve had this strange warm sensation in my face these last couple of days, I think it’s called the sun. Spring is coming.

My desktop computer suddenly died on me about a week ago.  After some swearing, a new PSU, mobo+trimmings and graphics card and help from IT-skilled husband it’s finally back in the land of the living and I’ve got some reinstalling to do.  Scanner settings. Wtf were they?  And I just made a pretentious post the other week you should maybe write them down… at least over the years and countless PC rebuilds I’ve wisened to store all my art, music, research etc. files on separate hard drives.
