taking stock.

why hello! it's been a little while, complete radio silence on this here blog...
working an extra day a week has certainly eaten into my free time for blogging, as well as my energy reserves for such things too.

i thought i'd join in with pip tonight and take stock with what's going on in my brain and life at the moment...



Making: myself crazy thinking about buying a house. i just kinda want it to be done and dusted and simple and ours. buying a property is complex shit man.

Cooking: not a lot. big lack of meal plans happening around here at the moment, hence my radio silence. struggling to think too far into the future at the moment.

Drinking: chamomile tea. trying to shush the loud in my brain at the moment.

Reading: blog posts. trying to catch up and stay on top of my reader.

Wanting: a few more hours in the day.

Looking: forward to march and a few less work hours.

Playing: the waiting game.

Deciding: to try and avoid dairy for a week or two. i have a theory it might help my flaky and psoriasis-y scalp. fingers crossed.

Wishing: my nails would stop peeling. they keep catching on everything!

Enjoying: sleeping. it's not happening for quite long enough on a day to day basis, but it's nice when it happens.

Waiting: for what seems like eternity... waiting for paydays and real estate agents and interest repayments and work days. adulthood is not so fun actually...

Liking: lots of photos on instagram. always.

Wondering: how long i could actually last working 6 days a week. physically, mentally, emotionally...

Loving: this quite mild summer. i am not a fan of endless spells of super hot days. at. all.

Pondering: what to get up to on my day off this week. i have a feeling it might be a little bit of exercise, and some grocery shopping. excitement plus!

Considering: playing along with chantelle and her photo a day challenges for the whole year... would be cool to have a photo for everyday. well most days anyway, i tend to run a little behind ha ha!

Buying: as little as possible. though food. that's where all the money goes!

Watching: all of the reality tv. well not all of it. the block and my kitchen rules and the great british sewing bee. that's it but it's keeping me busy!

Hoping: my mumma might come for a visit this weekend, i haven't seen her for nearly a month!

Marvelling: at how my kombucha is doing. i am churning out the stuff now that i'm in the groove! just need to remember to drink it!

Cringing: at how much housework is piling up around here. washing, ironing, cleaning, dishes, vacuuming... it never ends!

Needing: to ride my bike more. it bothers me that it's languishing in my garage.

Questioning: decisions made, words spoken. constantly.

Smelling: fresh, sun-dried linen on the bed. the best!

Wearing: one of bb's t-shirts. so comfy and cosy.

Following: along with fringe association hat-a-long, and contemplating casting on an audrey hat.

Noticing: how i can't seem to focus on just one thing today. it's annoying and i feel like i'm doing many things poorly. and forgetting important things.

Knowing: i should be going to sleep.

Thinking: about all the things i want to be doing, but don't seem to have the time at the moment... baking, cooking, experimenting, gardening, visiting. endless list really.

Admiring: people with their shit together.

Sorting: out nothing. i have all these organisation-y plans, but no time!

Getting: creeped out by mr. sampson. he enjoys jumping around and making strange noises to keep things lively.

Bookmarking: lots of wedding related bits and pieces.

Coveting: time in the garden. it's seemingly hard to come by at the moment, but i love when i'm out there.

Disliking: early mornings, late nights. it's really dumb but i keep doing it.

Opening: the new issue of pompom magazine. i bought a subscription last year, and they wrap up each copy and put a little thank-you sticker on it. it is adorable and never fails to make my day.

Giggling: at kayte's posts. she is a funny lady!

Feeling: a bit silly for forgetting to take water to work with me today. i barely drank anything all day. very very silly! Snacking: on dark chocolate with mint. and being annoyed when i realise after munching away that over half the block is gone. and that it contains dairy. gah!

Comforting: myself with lots of hugs from bb and sampson. the latter of the two is not so generous with his hugs, but they're nice when he feels like bestowing them on me.

Helping: my full brain by brain dumping a whole heap of stuff here in this post. well done if you've gotten this far.

Hearing: bb heading to bed. it's late, i should be heading there myself.

are you taking stock too? do you have enough hours in your day? have you ever bought a house and found it tricky to navigate? do you think these questions at the end of a post are a bit silly? (i like them, but my brother thinks they're silly, we'll see little brother, we'll see! :P)

It sure does suck being an adult at times but you have exciting times ahead of you. Good luck with it all x
