Pinned toot

Doing another to pin as some things have changed.

I'm Taryn, I live in Adelaide, and I'm a stay-at-home mum with a toddler. I'm very tired.

When I get time, I like to draw cartoonish pictures with semi-realistic features. I also like to make things. Sometimes I like to play games.

I'm cis, probably ace, and recently diagnosed with ADHD and autism. She/her, I guess.

Quite amazed at how well my drawing turned out given how rusty I was and oh man the s t r u g g l e

The struggle was, as they once said, real

Only took me four months since receiving my special fancy birthday present, but I have finally DRAWN A THING

boy is such a lot today

impulsively getting everything in the house out, moving on to the next thing, getting that out, throwing it everywhere

yelling at me to fix things I can't fix, like the toy library's borrowing policies

@grumpysmiffy hey you fix things with sugru or something like it, right?

boy has just broken some brittle plastic on a toy from the toy library and I don't know how to fix it but I need to do something or it'll be destroyed entirely

Found the time by once again sacrificing my chance of exercise.

I interacted very lightly with an aunt on Instagram and so of course I have received a 10,000 word essay on her 2020 over email that I now must apparently find the time to respond to 🤦‍♀️

Oh fuck. Psychiatrist hospitalised, must now retire. I will have to find a new one.

Well, today was a day. I guess a better one than I worried it would be. But ugh.

still alive, just, doing kid stuff, all the time, every day, forever, to the exclusion of all self care or pursuit of any interests

I look ridiculous but at least the extremely shit movie my husband put on isn't going to keep me up

I have an extremely attractive set of blue light blocking glasses and honestly I'm excited to sleep

Gorgeous Sunday so we are stuck inside awaiting the results of a covid swab

I was on the phone with Centrelink today and now I'm very tired.

Now presenting

things i should not technically upload to Redbubble, and will have to remove later

Got some possibly good Centrelink news: apparently I might not have to wait until late February to receive some help.
