I love the idea of this taking stock list which I found on Pip’s blog and thought it would be a great idea to get me back into the blogging frame of mind. I have a little more time on my hands lately so hopefully I will be back out taking photos soon (Mind you I was supposed to post this on Friday and ran out of time. Best laid plans and all that…..)
Making : a sock. But not just any sock. It is the one to match my first ever sock which was finished 6 months ago. I really need to keep up……
Cooking : yummy dinner with left over roast chicken .Cook some pasta. Meanwhile fry chopped up courgettes and mushrooms in a little olive oil. Add in the chopped up chicken. Cook for a few mins. Add pesto and crème fraiche and a spoonful of the pasta water to make a sauce. Poor over cooked pasta. Yummy.
Drinking : lots of water to balance out an awful lot of red wine.
Reading: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Driving over lemons & It’s All About Treo: Life and War with the World’s Bravest Dog (un-put-able-down-able!!!)
Wanting: more sunshine (please weather gods make it sunny every day for a while). The rain today has been quite spectacular and the hairy hound was not keen on the thunder and lightning.
Looking: forward to being by the seaside at the weekend with my lovely friend Roger the Lodger and her sister.
Playing: James Blunt (saw him in concert at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday. AMAZING. What a voice.)
Wasting: less time surfing the internet which is a good thing.
Wishing: I was more decisive
Enjoying: early morning walks with my hairy bear on the common
Waiting: for the tips of my left hand fingers to toughen up as I start to learn the guitar
Liking: the beautiful green of the fresh new leaves on the trees.
Wondering: if I can really buy a pair of black and orange shoes from Next or if they are way too outrageous for me.
Loving: my new kindle. When you have serious problems sleeping it is your friend.
Hoping: that my friend’s poorly horse keeps getting better. It is a terrible time for her.
Marvelling: at how the hairy hound can find the muddiest, stinkiest puddle to become swamp dog every single morning!
Needing: to find more time for my crochet and knitting.
Smelling: lavender hand cream
Wearing: my favourite high heeled boots
Following: (well will be following shortly!) a running plan to get down to a sub 1.50 half marathon.
Noticing: that I have completely missed spring this year which makes me sad as it is my favourite time of year.
Knowing: that I am so lucky to have such a completely wonderful circle of friends.
Thinking: That I must get out with my camera and get my blogging mojo back.
Feeling: like life is passing me by too quickly and that I need to grab opportunities and run with them.
Bookmarking: new websites full of easy guitar videos of all my favourite songs. I can’t wait to be able to play them.
Opening: an envelope with tickets to Badminton horse trials
Giggling: at my new mug “If at first you don’t succeed, have a very large gin & tonic”. Ahem…and no mentioning my mug addiction now.
