Joining in with Pip from Meetmeatmikes & doing my quarterly taking stock post. If you want to play along, I’ve attached a copy of the list at the end of this post for you to copy & paste, just be sure to credit & link back to Pip if you do.
So 3 months of the year have flown by already. Here’s what I’ve been up to.
Making: School lunches & healthy treats
Drinking: Water, caramel rooibos, Apple & ginger tea, regular tea, hot chocolates but NOT soft drinks!
Reading: besides the occasional bedtime story I’m not reading anything at the moment, unless blogs count?
Wanting: Sleep & a bit of time to myself.
Looking: Up at the sky, a lot. Trying to take the time to find some peace & calm in my days & also for my photo of the day for the challenge I set myself this year to capture #366_skies
Playing: Stages- cd by Josh Groban in anticipation of attending his concert next month
Deciding: whether or not to have a party for Peanut this year? He’s turning 5, which feels like a big deal (it is a a big deal) but we had a party last year & said we’d only do one every other year.
Wishing: the cycle of sickness would leave our family already. It’s been weeks & weeks of continued illnesses & I hate seeing the boys unwell, plus the crimp it’s putting in our socializing is killing me.
Enjoying: far too many hot cross buns & chocolate eggs
Waiting: For my new little niece to make her entrance into the world. Any day now. (* edited to say she has now arrived!!! 🙂
Liking: All things “Unicorns” yes still! You can see a few of my favs here in my flavor of the month post
Wondering: If Pumpkin will ever learn to self settle & sleep through the night. 18 months now, it’s getting beyond a joke!
Loving: My walks around the neighborhood. I love exploring new streets & getting out in the fresh air & sunshine, it’s good for the soul & my sanity.
Pondering: what to do whilst hubby is off on holidays… go away? day trips & outings? Get things sorted & organised around the house? Maybe a bit of everything?
Considering: What’s next?
Buying: Baby gifts, Easter eggs & new pj’s
Watching: The Big Bang Theory, The Mindy Project & because of Mr 4- Dr Who!! He loves it.
Hoping: the world & people in it get their shit together…. It’s scary to think what kind of society my boys are growing up in.
Cringing: Could Donald Trump really become the next US President?
Needing: A good nights sleep.
Questioning: Life choices & what the future has in store
Smelling: Vanilla candles & slow cooked bbq pulled pork
Wearing: New pjs, skirts & dresses
Following: The lovely Sam from The Annoyed Thyroid & the super funny Rachel from Toilets aren’t for Turtles- check them both out in this Fan Girl Friday post
Noticing: The birds in our backyard. Last year there were 2 doves that came to visit, this year their family has expanded & there are now four of them who hang out on our fence
Thinking: of all the things I have to do & want to do & how I should stop procrastinating & just do them!
Sorting: Boxes. It’s been a year since we moved & we’re STILL unpacking & going through boxes.
Getting: Fit & Healthy- (hopefully) by Moving More in March
Bookmarking: Easter treats & crafts
Coveting: new homewares- couches, furniture & decor, just can’t make up my mind on a style or theme & then there is the little issue of $$$$
Disliking: how often I have to sweep & vacuum. Dark carpets & hardwood floors are not forgiving & show every piece of fluff, dust & crumbs!
Opening: Happy Mail, as part of the Oh so Happy mail project started by the lovely Chantelle aka Fatmumslim. It’s nice to send & receive a little bit of happy & kindess.
Giggling: with & at my boys & their funny little ways.
Feeling: stressed out & worn out. Motherhood is not for the faint of heart!
Snacking: On fruit, homemade bliss balls, nuts & yoghurt
Hearing: the rain falling outside. It’s starting to feel more like Autumn now.
