The last few months I have been playing along with Pip from Meet me at Mikes, taking stock at the end of each month. I love it. I love taking a moment to reflect on the month and I love reading other people’s posts and getting all clicky on their links to good things.
Actually I was taking stock a year ago this month! Wowzers, where did that time go!
This is how my November 2014 rolled:
Making: My first advent calendar as of this week. I got the idea from here but am not getting 24 books so have mixed it up with lollies and the like and maybe 10 books.
Drinking: Water, still can’t get enough of the stuff. I’m so boring on this front at the mo!
Reading: I finished Lena Dunham’s Not That Type of Girl and I know I bagged it out a little here, but I actually really enjoyed it in the end. Have just started Baby and a Backpack a memoir by Jane Cornelious and really loving it so far.
Wanting: To set up my little man’s new room so I can see his face when he sees his new kick-ass bed! Someone has stuffed up on the eBay listing though because that is definitely NOT what we paid for it. An extra 2 has snuck in somewhere!
Looking: At all the things to see and do this festive season around Brisbane here.
Playing: 3,552 pick up with teeny tiny pieces of PlayDoh and I am not enjoying it!
Deciding: What to do food wise for part one of our Christmas. The part where my husband is home so we have a family Christmas day the weekend before he goes back to work. Next year our Christmas will be a one show event!
Wishing: I didn’t fail my glucose test last week and didn’t have to sit another one next week. Blah! Same thing happened last pregnancy though and I passed my second test so hope everything follows the script. 🙂
Enjoying: Wrapping Christmas gifts! Love this time of year.
Waiting: For lots of online shopping to arrive.
Loving: My friends and family for planning a baby shower for me. I didn’t have one with my first so a little bit excited about this one coming up.
Pondering: How I am going to keep all my balls in the air come February…
Watching: Arthur Christmas, over and over again but never quite making it to the end!
Hoping: Sia is actually at the Aria’s tonight and she shows her face. This hiding face thing she does hurts my brain! We know what you look like Sia! We know you are a freaking creative brilliance and we have seen you for many albums before.
Needing: A caffeine injection. A slap around the head. A lightening bolt up the ass!
Smelling: Oriental Lillies, a gift from my MIL
Wearing: No pants if I’m at home! My big, low belly has no time for pants.
Following: Champagne Cartel, One Small Life, Kirsten and Co. and Style.Life.Home.
Noticing: How everyone seems to be so busy!
Knowing: It is only a matter of time before Ari won’t be able to help himself and a present will be opened from under the tree.
Admiring: My friend Tanya, who (crazily in my book) has made the leap into politics.
Sorting: Through the piles of little things I have bought as gifts throughout the year.
Buying: Presents for everyone and I am nearly done! I think…
Giggling: At this “advertisement” for Unpretentiousil.
Feeling: Forever tired.
Snacking: On grapes. So yummy this season!
Wishing: There were more hours in the day (still!) and that I had the energy to fill them.
