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??
