I really love reading these types of posts by other bloggers. I devour them like a juicy article in a gossip mag. It’s interesting getting a glimpse of the person sitting behind the screen and tapping away at that keyboard.
Lately I’ve been anxious about churning out the next sewing project for the blog, and I think many bloggers get caught up in that grind. I consider this blog post a chance to jump off that treadmill. Thanks to my buddy Amy for the inspiration – she wrote this last month.
Making: Nothing. SHOCK HORROR. I’m currently between sewing projects. Pondering what’s next.
Cooking: Thai green curry in the slow cooker.
Drinking: Cascade mini cans of lime & soda.
Reading: Everything But The Squeal by John Barlow. It’s a bit boring, I might ditch it.
Wanting: A new laptop. Bank balance is almost in agreement.
Looking: At Anna in her school uniform and wondering where the time went.
Playing: Candy Crush Saga. It’s a terrible addiction. I’m up to level 273.
Wasting: Time. On Facebook usually.
Sewing: Nothing. But I have plans for some quilts and a Lady Skater Dress.
Wishing: That I had more time to sew and write tutorials for the blog.
Enjoying: Having my husband home after six weeks away working overseas.
Waiting: For my sister to call and tell me that she has accepted or declined a new job offer.
Liking: Ferrero Hazelnut filled Easter Eggs.
Wondering: If my kids will ever tire of watching Peppa Pig?
Loving: One on one time with Lucy. Now that Anna is at school she is my little side kick.
Hoping: That Malaysia Flight 370 will be found ASAP. I can’t imagine what those families are going through.
Marvelling: At my friend Mary. She is a mama of 3 with a lot on her plate. She packs more into a day that I do in a week. I have nothing but admiration for her. Lucky to have her as a friend.
Needing: A pedicure. Seriously.
Watching: Downton Abbey, Louis Theroux documentaries and Big Bang Theory. (Is Sheldon Cooper the best character on TV right now? I say yes.)
Smelling: The scent of my new shampoo. Not used to it yet.
Wearing: 3/4 jeans and a black t-shirt.
Following: Blogs that aren’t about sewing. Faux Fuschia is a current fave. 11/10.
Noticing: My medical typing at work is really improving. It’s like learning another language.
Knowing: That Lucy will eventually eat her veggies if I just keep serving them up.
Thinking: A lot about Daniel Morcombe. Too much I think. As parents I suspect we just have to live with the paranoia and do our best to protect our kids without smothering them.
Feeling: Pretty relaxed. Enjoying life and the new routine of part time work and school this year.
Bookmarking: The Age online and various sewing tutorials.
Opening: The pantry. For meal inspiration. It’s not working.
Giggling: Over stuff the kids say. It’s like living with two miniature comedians.
We should catch up like this more often! *pours wine*
