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.

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.

I have sent @shlee a terrible recording of myself playing Cruel Angel's Thesis on a kazoo. Terribly. Because nobody in this house gets me. I know he'll understand.

Attempt to do anything thwarted yet again, even the highly enjoyable laundry is too much fun for me to be permitted to have.

Made some very fail sourdough today and over the past several days the process has destroyed my hands. I might need to buy food prep gloves for mixing, folding, etc. My hands are just too dry and prone to cracking.

first draft resume and cv done

cover letter later


Oh, the unemployment/poverty sads are big today.

I also painted the face back on the boy's cat magnet.

He loved this magnet so much as a baby that he ate the cat's face.

One of my few mum friends is right into it, and has been trying to encourage me for months. She popped by on the weekend and gifted me some rocks and paint pens.

There's a Facebook group in Adelaide that paints rocks and leaves them for people to find. I'm not on Facebook but I may do the thing. Perhaps it'll be a mystery for the group too.
