My love affair with lists is at play again today. It’s not the first time. I think a list can say a lot so here is mine as of today:
Making: My amateur sewing skills have vamped up a level and I’ve made Baby Vick a sleeping bag. It actually worked! WIN! So I’m making another ready for the wintery chill which will inevitably sweep over us any moment now.
Cooking: way too many mince dishes. Baby Vick raves about a bit of mince and eats more than my adult belly can consume in one sitting. So Spag Bol, Sheppard Pie & Tarcos are being made at an ungodly rate. Can you help a girlfriend out and share a new mince dish recipe perhaps?
Drinking: green cordial. It’s my naughty delight.
Reading: are you kidding? I’ve forgotten what it feels like to hold a novel (and not fall asleep) and I have to go the doctors to get an opportunity to scan a glossy, trash bag magazine every now and again.
Wanting: our family vacay in August to the tropics to HURRY THE HELL UP!
Looking: at the neighbours overloaded Lemon tree and wondering if whilst she is away, I could pull a shifty? Lemon slice could go quite nicely.
Playing: fire fighters on a daily basis ‘cos I’m a miniature, fireman, wannabes slave
Sewing: intentions to make a cloud pillow. Pinterest inspired, naturally.
Wishing: I was skinner but needing chocolate like an addict needs crack.
Enjoying: This gorgeous, sunny Indian Summer. If it were a hunk of a man I would kiss it!
Waiting: for a full nights sleep. Still. 9 months on.
Wondering: like everyone, about the flight MH370 mystery.
Loving: Pinterest. Long time lover. Committed for life.
Hoping: Little Vick doesn’t get a bad case of the trots again this Easter (suspecting too much chocolate as the culprit) whilst we’re camping with just a drop dunny.
Marveling: at how Mother Nature thanks me for putting on a load of washing by a sudden clap of thunder of darkening of the skies.
Needing: a clone. You with me?
Smelling: the smell of stewed apples from our kitchen. I’ve been an excellent house wifey today.
Wearing: Some very questionable short shorts not fit for public view.
Liking: the last few days of daylight savings and sneaking a game of cricket in with my boys before bedtime. I like that I always get to be the batter EVEN MORE.
Noticing: how talented I am. Typing this one handed whilst carrying a teething, cuddly Baby Vick in his Bjorn carrier.
Knowing: I wont be getting to the gym today. Story of my life.
Thinking: I’d rather not.
Feeling: a little too relaxed about the state of my house knowing we’re having visitors later. I see a frenzy ahead.
Bookmarking: A gorgeous blog titled Chateau de Gudanes which tracks two Aussies who are renovating an abandoned French Chateau. Oh the romance of it all!
Opening: a new packet of yoghurt icy poles in this household is like discovering Nirvana.
Giggling: at giggling. It’s infectious. Two little people, then me.
So what would your list look like at the moment?
(This list has been flogged gazillions of times now but originally it was the genius of Meet Me At Mikes)
