The lovely Pip from ‘Meet me at Mikes’ has posted about taking stocking this month. It made me realise that the last time I ‘took stock‘ and had a close look at where I am and what I’m doing in that moment was just over a year ago. It’s amazing how time flies! Pip is so right that we should all be doing this more often as it’s a lovely way to really catch up with yourself.
Here’s a look at where I’m at today:
Making : A list of what to pack for our camping trip up the coast next week.
Cooking : Not much right now but I will have to think about what to make for dinner soon. I’m thinking a spag bol because it requires minimal effort and everyone eats it.
Drinking : Tea. Although I kinda wish it was coffee but I’m too lazy to make one.
Reading: Course material from a course I’m currently doing called Brandlicious. It’s all about getting me and my blog ready for working with brands.
Wanting: Mr D to come home from his work trip to Singapore. It feels like he’s been gone for ages.
Looking: Forward to spending a few days camping with Mr D and the kids next week.
Playing: With a new video app on my phone called Hyperlapse.
Deciding: What to do next with my kid free day. My to-do list is so long that I’m procrastinating.
Wishing: My family lived closer. Always wishing my family lived closer.
Enjoying: The silence. Except for the chitter chatter of a couple of rainbow lorikeets outside.
Waiting: For tomorrow so I can eat. I’m following the 5/2 diet and today is a fast day.
Liking: My life. I’m content right now.
Wondering: Whether or not it’s going to storm and whether to hang my washing up outside or inside?
Loving: That summer is on it’s way. I’m a real sunshine girl and I love the summer months.
Pondering: How I can get better at managing my time next term.
Considering: Going for a walk around the block to stretch my legs and get some fresh air.
Watching: The Bachelor. Well I will be tonight (I know, I know – don’t judge me).
Hoping: That we have warm sunshine next week for our camping trip.
Marvelling: At my orchid which is re-flowering beautifully. I was convinced it was dead over the winter!
Needing: To get better at going to bed early.
Smelling: Rain. It’s coming.
Wearing: Comfy harem pants and a t-shirt.
Following: The disappearance of little William (spiderman). How on earth can a child just vanish???
Noticing: That my wooden floors could do with a vacuum and mop. No point until after the school holidays though.
Knowing: That in less than six months I’m going to be seeing all of my family all together for the first time in forever.
Thinking: The next blog post I could write.
Admiring: A lovely friend of mine who is going through some pretty touch chemo at the moment for breast cancer, and every time I see her she’s smiling and positive. Amazing lady.
Sorting: Kids clothes – they are growing up so quickly.
Buying: Not much.
Getting: Stuff done today while the kids are out of the house.
Bookmarking: Anything I find on beginner photography.
Disliking: This annoying fly that is buzzing around my head and can’t seem to find the open door to get outside.
Opening: Mail – and it’s not very exciting!
Giggling: When the kids are around.
Feeling: Guilty that I’m not with the kids today. I don’t know why though, as they are off into the city with school holiday kids club and are probably having tonnes of fun.
Snacking: On nothing!
Coveting: A glass of wine and a foot massage.
Wishing: I could eat a piece of chocolate.
Helping: Master J improve his handwriting (he is not a fan of punctuation).
Hearing: Lawn mowers humming in the distance – the sound of summer.
I’ll try and not leave it a whole year until I do this little exercise again.
Have you taken stock lately?
