Currently I am:
Reading: Since getting my iPad, I have gotten back into reading. I’ve just started reading Liane Moriarty’s What Alice Forgot. Alice hits head head during a step class and loses 10 years of her life. Instead of being happily married and pregnant, she’s a mother of three and in the middle of a divorce. I’m only a few chapters in, but so far it’s got me hooked.
Listening to: I divulged my obsession to Richard Mercer’s Love Song Dedications radio show every night as I drive to work yesterday but my “go to” Album at the moment is Taylor Swift’s RED. Love it! Must admit, I hit repeat a couple of times on “I knew you were trouble”.
Laughing at: Last night I watched the Just For Laughs – Montreal Comedy Festival on TV. I love a good laugh and this has me laughing until my belly hurt, then kept on going!
Swooning over: I’m still madly in love with my new bed and linen. I think it’s a love affair that will last a while.
Planning: If you promise not to tell 7 year old Jacob, because I couldn’t stand months of “how long, how many sleeps, when are we going”, I’m currently planning another trip to Queensland. Flights were organised last year during a sale, now I’m just deciding where to stay etc.
Eating lots of: Shortbread biscuits left over from Christmas! Happy to say, we are nearly at the end of a very large quantity.
Feeling: Renewed. Since I declared 2013 the year of doing for us, I feel like we are making the most out of each day. I was getting really sad thinking about the things we could have done or places we could have gone during a day we had just wasted doing nothing. I know it’s still only January, but so far the plan is working.
Discovering: I’ve been tracing our family history for a few decades now and I’m constantly discovering new and interesting things about my ancestors.
Looking at: My gorgeous friend Fiona gave me this plaque and I love it. It hangs on the wall next to my desk.
Wearing: The beautiful “ Live, Love, Laugh” necklace my husband got me for Christmas.
Cooking: Even though it’s summer, my slow cooker is still getting a workout. I love how easy it is just to whack everything in, turn it on and voila, dinner. Makes it very easy for my husband who it on dinner duty on the nights I work. I can just pop everything in before I go to bed and when I wake up, they are all fed :)
Wondering: How I’m going to cope with Zachary heading off to Uni this year and living away from us :(
Trying out: I have lusted after a Thermomix for ages so when the Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master came out at a affordable price, I decided to try it out to see just how much I would use it. I’m still lusting after the Thermomix but for the time being my “Bella” is serving me well.
And just because I can, I’m also linking up to i must confess
And Open Slather Monday :)
