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.    Mrs D plus 3 taking stock 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.  Mrs D plus 3 taking stock 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?

  1. We must be telepathically in tune!

    Good luck with Miss H’s fairytale costume. I can’t believe there are so many dress ups at school. The Big Sister had to go to school as a nursery rhyme character earlier this year. I stitched a spider onto a tutu and told her she was Little Miss Muffet!

    • Genius!! I was thinking of red riding hood. I think I can just about handle a red cloak and a picnic basket!! x

    • Hahaha, yes!! There was a reason I was not there, I would have whipped those brushes out there little hands in no time!! I think Christmas makes me homesick although I’m definitely not complaining about the sunshine. Hugs right back at ya x
