Hello! How are you? It has been an AGE since my last post! But now it is Good Friday and everyone is home doing NOTHING because that is our Good Friday tradition – along with eating 70 million hot cross buns – so I thought it a most excellent time to put the feet up, pop the fingertips on the keyboard and take stock as we hit the ‘quarter way through the year’ mark!
Cooking: fish and chips. My mother has ingrained in me that this is only dinner permitted to be eaten on Good Friday
Eating: hot cross buns, hot cross buns, one a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns!
Drinking: instant coffee at this precise moment. Nothing fancy schmancy here!
Reading: Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. Wow! Opens the eyes to the incredible injustices in the US criminal justice system
Wanting: daylight saving to end. Light in the morning please!
Making: time to do some drawing every day
Enjoying: a very lazy day
Loving: that it is school holidays. Little sleep-ins, earlier nights.
Wearing: jeans, singlet, flowery top
Needing: to get said jeans altered. I think they’ve stretched and are now feeling uncomfortably loose
Hearing: twittering and chirrupping
Listening: to Clare and Pip interviewing Melissa and Ben
Feeling: happy with some new Etsy purchases courtesy a birthday gift voucher
Knowing: that even at 17 and 19, your kids are never too old for an Easter egg hunt! Easter Bunny was admonished last year for not leaving one. Oops!
Wondering: if I should do some embroidery? Feeling inspired by Threadfolk
How are you travelling up to this point in the year? Has it been smooth sailing for you? Choppy waters? Bit of both? Maybe you want to take stock too? Thanks, Pip, for the ‘Taking Stock’ idea!
