Taking Stock – February 2015
Pip from Meet me at Mikes started a taking stock list last year. Since then a number of bloggers have chosen to participate each month, including me. I love taking stock, taking a moment to reflect on what is happening around us, what I am thinking and feeling.
Making: Plans, lists, brainstorming ideas – so much going around in this head of mine!
Cooking: I made fried rice last night. Was awesome.
Drinking: Too much wine.
Reading: That Sugar Book – ok well I haven’t started it yet but I will soon.
Wanting: To believe in myself a little bit more.
Looking: Forward to a playdate with a new friend from school on Sunday.
Playing: Trying to teach Mr 5 how to play Connect 4. It is not going to plan. He gets so cross when I block him.
Deciding: On where we should stay in Sydney for a upcoming weekend away.
Wishing: I could just do everything I wanted too. So many things, not enough time.
Enjoying: Mr 5’s new school community.
Waiting: For my Saturday fishing expedition with Dad. Can’t wait. Hope we are having fish for dinner on Saturday!
Liking: This cooler weather, the nights are so balmy.
Wondering: If I will ever stop spending and start saving. Its just so boring!
Loving: My Fiddle Leaf Fig. Who knew I would love a plant so much… its actually kind of ridiculous. I need therapy.
Pondering: How I should spend some birthday money. I could invest it in my blog or go on a big shopping spree…
Considering: Opening a small shop section to the blog, featuring select and unique homewares. What do you think?
Watching: The return of The Real Housewives of Melbourne – oh yeah!
Hoping: That the Dietician is kind to me tomorrow! Eeek, a bit nervous about what she is going to say.
Marvelling: At how the truth always comes out.
Needing: To get Miss 3 into a ballet class. The kid is desperate to do ballet.
Smelling: Hubby in his new aftershave – he smells damn fine.
Wearing: New Jeggings from Cotton On. Seriously amazingly comfortable and so cheap!
Following: thefeathertribe on Instagram, My new fav!
Noticing: How much sugar is actually in everything! Everything! Even fruit is being grown and altered to be sweeter. Argh!
Knowing: The trick to getting awesome back grounds for food photos is a pretty backdrop. And here I was thinking everyone had marble benches. Yes, I am that dumb sometimes.
Thinking: About how I will plan my revenge on the husband. He took a sneaky video of me to prove something and I will get my revenge!
Admiring: My fellow bloggers in my mentor group. They are all good eggs.
Sorting: Out the kids wardrobes. Always a little sad passing their old clothes on.
Getting: Silly drunk with the girls. Its been a long 18 months between those two popping out babies! We have lots of catching up to do.
Pinning: New backgrounds for photography.
Disliking: The fact that online trolls have left one of Australia’s best bloggers broken and defeated. Shame on them.
Opening: Late birthday presents and prizes in the mail. Happy mail day today!
Giggling: At the stories Mr 5 is bringing home from school. Oh my lord, they get better each day.
Feeling: Excited. March is bursting full of good times to be had!!
Snacking: On boiled eggs and tuna. More protein and less sugar!
Coveting: A new camera.
Helping: Mr 5 to learn to tie shoelaces.
Hearing: Roxette! I downloaded their greatest hits album the other day. Don’t pretend you don’t love them as well. Whats your favourite song?
