We’re at the end of yet another month already. Goodbye March. I thought it would be good to take a moment to look where I am now, in the present with Taking Stock. I love taking stock, taking a moment to reflect on what is happening in my life, what I am thinking and feeling.
MAKING plans, lists, goals – as you have probably noticed!
COOKING lots of porridge, the ultimate comfort food.
DRINKING Pukka teas. I’m trying to cut back on caffeine at the moment.
READING the new edition of Red Magazine. I always get excited when it pops through my letter box each month.
WANTING a certain Habitat rug for the Living Room! I think I’ll be wanting it a while!
LOOKING forward to summer in New York!
PLAYING Get What You Give by New Radicals. A great song for working out, the old classic brings a smile to my face each time!
ENJOYING finding my Zen and meditating with Buddhify, my app of the moment.
WAITING for a new little niece or nephew! Not long to go. This time next month he or she will be here!
LIKING the lighter nights of springtime.
WONDERING if my sister will have a boy or girl.
LOVING the new track from Sufjan Stevens. I may have to get the album!
PONDERING a change of career + how to get there.
CONSIDERING dusting off my sewing machine + getting crafting again.
WATCHING The Following season 3 (addictive psychological thriller!)
HOPING the DVLA send me my provisional soon! Can’t wait to take driving lessons.
MARVELLING at art work The Jealous Curator discovers.
NEEDING a new pair of jeans. I have discovered holes in these ones!
SMELLING wet dog! Roxy likes jumping in muddy puddles!
WEARING my new spring anorak, though I fear I’ve packed my winter parka away too soon!
FOLLOWING Pixiwoo on Youtube. Wish those girls would give me a makeover!
NOTICING my dress size! Need to lose one or two!
KNOWING I really need to hoover the house…tomorrow…tomorrow…
THINKING it’s been a very quick month.
ADMIRING cool Australian homes on The Design Files.
BUYING well, planning to buy this cool Scion fabric to make cushions for the living room.
GETTING ready to ‘switch off.’
DISLIKING this wet, blustery March day.
OPENING a new jar of almond butter.
GIGGLING at my wee niece – 3 year olds say the funniest things.
FEELING Tired. Sluggish. Flat. Next month I will be feeling motivated and energised!
SNACKING on date ‘eclairs’ (medjool dates stuffed with almond butter)
COVETING this singing kettle from Alessi. We’ve been using a broken kettle for a year + a half!
WISHING I could pack up and go live in Barcelona for a few months.
HELPING out my folks + showing them how to use their iPad.
HEARING the cat meowing at the door! I better let him in!
