1. I have my family up visiting this week! They are staying in a farmhouse nearby, so I am still around, but will be v erratic about commenting/not commenting, so forgive me if I miss/seem to ignore anything or take longer than usual to reply, while commenting/posting elsewhere; it's just how it goes with the CFS and my socialising energy is going into rl for a little bit till they go again Friday. (My family also includes little sis and her two wee ones and bump that will eventually be another wee one. \o/) I have some Posts I Made Earlier, so I may even confuse things further by still posting.


2. There is a meme going round:
COME PLAY @ THE [ FIC POSITIVITY FEEDBACK MEME ]


I don't have a thread (yet anyway), but I'm all for giving authors feedback (even if possibly not this week), so if you're interested in leaving nice comments/concrit/having your own thread, you should make your way over there.


3. Talking of my family and PSAs, my four (almost five) year old nephew had apparently recently been learning about death for some reason (possibly via heaven or something; it's a CofE primary school), which was fine, except that he decided he needed to share this fact with his 3 and a bit year old sister at 7.30am. Wee Niece was of course not pleased to learn about death and mortality without warning when getting ready for nursery ("Everybody dies - even Mummy and Daddy and you and me!") and was fairly inconsolable for a bit. Cue Small Nephew being sent to his room, departing with a muttered, "I'm right, though. Everybody does die!"

They are both still adorable; I saw them yesterday, it is a fact. As an auntie, I am totally unbiased and objective on that score, so if I say so, it must be true. I introduced them to Daleks for the first time yesterday, so you will be glad to see I am a responsible DW fan. (I have some tiny ones that run on wheels and can be played with by small nephews and nieces.)

Aw! What's the least scary DW? That should be a list somewhere possible not made by child psychiatrists;p

Awww, poor Small Nephew! Almost-five is a bit young to grasp "even though this exciting new fact of yours is true and interesting, your sister may not be quite developmentally equipped to cope with it yet, especially while getting ready for nursery."

(Also poor parents trying to wrangle the situation at 7.30am.)

You are a strange person to be happy about visiting family. ;) They're nice when they're that age though, aren't they! All discovery and joy (and making each other cry - whoops!)

Excellent work getting them trained so young! Do you have a clockwork Dalek? Those are great when playing with small children. Not that I would know anything about that, because I would never play with small children, obviously. Grr. I am fierce.

Aww, sounds like a nice family visit, despite the near existential crisis with the little ones. Some toy Daleks sound like the ideal antidote - you're clearly a very good aunt :)

Aww, your niece and nephew sound adorable! And you're never too young for Daleks (well, small ones on wheels at least).

I am imagining toddlers chasing tiny clockwork Daleks and it is a very good mental image. You are a very good aunt!
