I am doing a Blogging course, to try and be a Better Blogger. It’s with the fabulous Pip Lincolne from Meet Me at Mikes, and is called Blog with Pip.
If you have a blog, or have ever wanted to have a blog, I would totally recommend it-LOADS of information, and lots of support from a great community.
Anyway, one of the optional assignments is a Taking Stock post.
Making : Trying to make a Lego mat/carry thing for the Smalls, to contain the mountain of Lego they have and limit the number of Lego related painful incidents (treading on Lego…). BUT the sewing machine started to play up, so this is on hold while the machine is away being serviced
Cooking : I have the butter out of the fridge coming up to room temperature and awaiting inspiration for biscuits and cake, as we have a shortage post holiday!
This lady used to write a column called the Eco Worrier in the The Times, and is full of practical down to earth hints and tips for ‘green living’. My have tip so far is to put your dishcloths in the dishwasher when you put it on, to clean and sterilise them-GENIUS!
Wanting: More time! Always more time.
Looking: Out the window, wondering if the sun is going to break through the clouds
Playing: A podcast from the Blog With Pip course, about ‘Blog to Book’
Deciding: If I really have the time to try and turn this Blog into a Book…!
Wishing: I was more tech savvy
Enjoying: Some peace and quiet-hubby has taken the Smalls out for a couple of hours 🙂
Waiting: to see if the photo I have just taken on my ‘new’ (2ndhand) i-phone will magic it’s way onto the computer
Liking: My ‘new’ (2ndhand) i-phone. I think. Now I have FINALLY worked out how to transfer my contacts…
Wondering: What you will all make of this post
Loving: My boys. I am the only female in our family (pets excluded), and consider myself very lucky indeed to have three amazing men (or boys) in my life
Pondering: What to write for this bit…
Considering: Whether or not to get up and go for a wee!
Watching: Hubby got Captain Phillips out from the library this morning. A little bit concerned it might not be the cosy Saturday evening viewing I had in mind…
Hoping: That the cat hasn’t just bought another bird in through the cat flap
Marvelling: At the wonders of modern technology
Needing: More knowledge, and more time to assimilate the knowledge
Smelling: The half eaten Easter egg sat in front of me
Wearing: My jeans skirt, an old shirt of my mums, and my grey cardi that I keep meaning to tart up
Following: Action for Happiness on Twitter and Facebook, there posts are usually guaranteed to make me smile 🙂
Noticing: How quickly time flies when the kids are out and you have a long to-do list….
Knowing: They will be back soon, and I won’t have done half of it
Thinking: How lucky I am
Feeling: Grateful. And a little over-whelmed
Admiring: All the beautiful blogs out there, and the gorgeous photos that people take, and wondering if I’ll ever be able to do the same!
Sorting: What I want to do. With my life.
Buying: Confession time-I bought something new! Which is ok, since the year has officially ended. But still feels a bit weird. We went a bit crazy in the shop at the Eden Project. All of the stuff there is ‘ethical’ and they have done a great job of providing a retail stream, without compromising their values. I bought a ‘Tarp-hat’. Made from old tarpaulins in Brazil. It’s VERY cool. And recycled.
Getting: Cross at myself for taking so long to write this post!
Bookmarking: The Screw Work Lets Play information, for yet another course I am embarking on
Disliking: My very teeny attention span and butterfly mind
Opening: My mind to new opportunities and possibilities
Giggling: At the Smalls and the things they come out with
Feeling: Over-whelmed. Excited. Frustrated.
Snacking: Hubby presented me with an Easter Egg he had stashed away when he thought I was about to throw my phone out of the window while struggling to import the contacts
Coveting: Anything from Elvis and Kresse. Click on the link. You too will covet.
Wishing: I were more patient. And serene.
Helping: Spread the word of Make Do and Mend, I hope!
Hearing: Silence. Blissful.
If you fancy doing your own little bit of Stock Taking, here is the list. Copy and paste it. If you would like to, you can then either share your list, or a link to where you have posted it, and we can all have a nosy around at each other’s inner musings…
I’m looking forwards to reading some of yours 🙂
