Happy 1st May! It’s Friday too, so that’s definitely cause for a smile. I’m in a real procrastinating mood today, which is not good as it means I’m not really achieving much of anything. What better to do than a little stock take on life today – my favourite little time wasting exercise created by Pip from Meet Me At Mikes.
Taking stock – May 2015
Making: Lolly bags for Hollie’s 6th birthday party at the movies on Sunday.
Cooking: No much today. Fridays are usually my day off.
Reading: emails and catching up on all the blog posts I missed while I was in South Africa.
Wanting: the rain to stop.
Looking: at the big pile of paperwork I still have to catch up on.
Marvelling: that I got to meet five beautiful Africa elephants in person.
Playing: with my two kittens. Trying to stop my toes from being eaten!
Deciding: whether or not to do a load of washing. This endless rain is killing me.
Wishing: the sun would come out. Cliched I know, but two weeks of rain is ENOUGH already.
Snacking: on home made chocolates.
Waiting: for my mum to get back from her trip. It feels like ages since we had a good chat.
Liking: snuggling up under a blanket at night now that the weather is getting cooler.
Wondering: what this month has in store for me.
Loving: being back in Sydney (even though I had an amazing month in South Africa).
Pondering: my ‘way too long’ to-do list.
Considering: myself one very lucky lady.
Watching: a TV series called ‘Satisfaction’
Needing: to do some exercise.
Smelling: fresh linen. Sadly if from a new oil diffuser and not actual linen.
Wearing: winter woolies.
Following: The horrors of Nepal and wishing I could do more to help.
Noticing: how quickly my kids are growing up.
Knowing: that I’ll most probably be watching footy in the rain tomorrow.
Thinking: that I really need to finish an online course I started before I went on holiday.
Admiring: those people who are having a productive day.
Sorting: the kids wardrobes. Summer clothes out and winter clothes are in.
Buying: not a lot. Sill on that budget.
Hoping: that my Gran gets better soon.
Getting: our new camper trailer this month. Not sure I’m keep to use it in this weather though.
Bookmarking: a lot of things.
Disliking: bad drivers.
Opening: some windows to get some fresh air in the house.
Giggling: At a Facebook post I just read about my friend driving to work and then getting the train home (forgetting that she had driven). I remember doing the exact same thing once, a few years ago, in the days that I was cabin crew for Virgin Atlantic. I got the crew bus home after a trip to New York, totally forgetting that my car away actually at the airport!
Feeling: like I’ve fallen behind on everything.
Coveting: some new jeans
Hearing: Lexi watching ‘Giggle and Hoot’ on the telly instead of napping. I have a feeling that my days of her lunch time naps are coming to a rapid end!
So what’s happing in your life today??
Well there’s been torrential rain falling here for over 24hrs now and the last hr has been quite bad with a storm so I’m pretty much just sitting here trying to come up with ideas to entertain a house bound toddler. If you have any good ideas let me know 🙂
AH it’s awful isn’t it. Also I should be grateful that we are safe and not being washed away. Here’s to some sunshine soon :))
I’m wishing the rain would stop too! I just want to see some blue sky! Still, the best things about rainy days is there’s no better excuse to do some rainy day baking!
Thanks for sharing. We’re doing the budgeting thing too. It’s interesting, I’m finding it a good time to sort through the things we have x
Nooo, not the day time naps!!! My toddler has stubbornly refused to have her naps and I am beginning to think it is the end of an era. My productivity levels have plummeted since then.
At least you have two kittens to distract you from the miserable weather. I only have one and he’s 11 years old. x
Gosh you’ve had an amazing month. I loved seeing all of your photos from South Africa. Hehehe I’m bookmarking lots too!!
Hi Rob, loved seeing your family experience in South Africa. Such an unpleasant return to this dreadful past two weeks of rain and all the dreadful conditions. I think your littlest miss will still have some arvo sleeps. This weather is very conducive ! Denyse xx
I think you actually are quite productive with lolly bags and clothes sorting!! I must get on to that… And love to your gran, hope she gets better soon xox
How good was today? So lovely to see the sun again. Especially with a bit of warmth in it. I love reading these Taking Stock posts. They give such a sweet glimpse into someone else’s life.
