It’s about a month since I took stock, and a lot happened- Easter, niece and family visiting, Mr E back home, so time to take stock again.
Making- am knitting a lovely little something for Miss F but also well on with my next piece for the stitching project, which has made me so happy.
Cooking- am researching recipes for fig and apple crumble, does anyone have a good one.
Drinking- mango juice-WHY? Can’t walk past it in a supermarket without buying and then drinking it!
Reading- The Sea Wolf by Jack London- brilliant book, but also my latest copy of my local family history group magazine.
Wanting- my Dad to get over his chest infection, improve his mobility so he can go home
Looking- at the flippin’ bind weed which just keeps on coming up in the garden.
Playing- with lots of fabric and threads dreaming up new projects
Deciding- do we really want to move house
Wishing- the fog would lift and the sun come out before I go to work today
Pondering- should I retire next year?
Considering- the cross roads of life and the decisions we make- anyone seen the play Dangerous Corner?
Watching- the weeds grow, especially the bind weed
Hoping- for a lovely sunny evening on Sunday 4 May
Marveling- at the joy that children bring, so happy and joyful at the littlest things. Like this.
Master T loved this paper napkin at Easter. “A treasure map” he cried and “All I need is a hat, my wellie boots and a smelly sock!!!”
Needing- to have some time to think, so much doing and not enough thinking
Knowing- I need to make a pot of coffee right now.
Well that was nice..
Thinking- how do people juggle all the demands that others put on them- each one reasonable by itself but collectively unreasonable, how to say No, and what to say it to
Feeling- still on the overwhelmed side
Admiring- I think the person I most admired this month is the lady who has taken on the cause of the Hillsborough victims.
Sorting- oh please let me have strength and the will to sort out the garage- what is that rubbish??
Getting- lots of good nights sleep- ten on the trot- it’s brilliant, you really can’t beat a good nights sleep
Bookmarking – Lola nova for the stitching project- do check her out
Disliking- I have 24 hour TV news on at work in the reception area I work in and I really dislike the way the journalists get so over excited by breaking bad news, it is so distasteful
Opening- can’t get my Dad to open his post whilst he’s in hospital and it is bothering me no end
Giggling- oh at the antics of grandchildren and great nieces, three year olds are the just the tops
Feeling- calmer these days but I find all these decisions very unsettling
Snacking- chocolate Easter eggs
Coveting- non fattening chocolate, why has no-one invented it?
Wishing- for non fattening chocolate and ginger nut biscuits
Helping- Mr B acquire his first car, he finally passed his driving test, 4 gos and aged 25!
Hearing- the steam trains on the North York Moors railway leaving the station
Enjoying- a morning of quiet deliberation
Waiting- for Sunday!!
