It’s been three months since I last did a little ‘taking stock’ on my life and I promised myself I’d do it more often. Also, I wrote this yesterday while I was suffering from a severe self-inflicted hangover, and it was nice to write something that didn’t require too much brain power.
So here goes……..
Making : A costume for Miss H’s fairytale day at school next week. Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
Cooking : Summer fish pie. I love summer dinners, they’re so much quicker and easier to whip up.
Drinking : Water. I had waaaaay to much wine over the weekend.
Reading: Richard Branson’s “Screw it, let’s do it!”.
Wanting: To lose 5kg (Yes, I know, I just need to get over it!).
Looking: Forward to Friday. Miss H and I are going to see Katy Perry. Wahoooo!
Playing: With my baby boys. The cutest little kittens in all the land. Deciding: What to organise for my sisters hen party.
Wishing: My family lived closer. Still wishing they lived closer.
Enjoying: The fact that I actually don’t have that much to do today (for a change).
Waiting: For my scatter love cards to arrive from Fat Mum Slim. YAY!!
Wondering: If I’ll get to IKEA this week. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with IKEA. I need to go, but it’s just so dangerous.
Loving: The jacaranda trees. There is purple everywhere I go at the moment. It’s so pretty. Pondering: On whether to go out for a walk or not??
Considering: Dying my hair dark again. Will I regret it??
Watching: Two cockatoo’s swinging on the cable lines outside my window. They are such characters!!
Hoping: My friend is feeling better this week.
Marvelling: At how quickly this year has whizzed by.
Needing: To do the ironing.
Smelling: Jasmine from the garden wafting through the house. I love it.
Wearing: Shorts and a singlet.
Following: The local property market. I wish it would stop climbing at the rate of knots.
Noticing: That the windows in our house need a damn good clean.
Knowing: That I’m going to see my family in 4 months time.
Thinking: That I’m pretty damn lucky right now.
Admiring: All the beautiful Christmas goodies I keep seeing online. I LOVE Christmas.
Sorting: Through my to-do list.
Buying: Paint. I’m embarking on a bit of DIY at the moment.
Getting: Excited about Katy Perry.
Bookmarking: Cool home office ideas. That’s my next DIY project.
Disliking: That there is no shade on my balcony. I can’t wait for it to be installed!!
Opening: A packet on almonds.
Giggling: At a video I just made of the kids helping to paint a wall yesterday. Feeling: Pretty content with life right now.
Snacking: On an orange (and the almonds).
Coveting: A sneaky afternoon siesta.
Wishing: I could go back to England – just for a little taste of that northern hemisphere Christmas spirit.
Helping: Miss H write a letter to Santa.
Hearing: The kittens run up and down the corridor like little lunatics.
My friend Amanda from Cooker and a Looker blog posted her ‘Taking Stock’ thoughts today too. We must be telepathically in tune!! Pop over and see what’s she’s up too.
How’s your November looking?
