I saw this post originally on Love Audrey’s latest blog post which directed me to Meet Me At Mike’s writing and the exercise, Taking Stock. On first glance, it seems quite easy but some of the prompts REALLY made me think!
Cooking : I’ve become stuck in a rut again with my culinary skills…time to get the recipe books out for some inspiration
Drinking : a lot of water to make up for the lashings alcohol drank over the weekend celebrating my Dads 60th
Reading: The Art of Hiding by Amanda Prowse – it’s set in Bath & Bradford on Avon! I’m really enjoying her books at the moment. I might do a blog post on them…
Wanting: a few more hours in the day
Looking: at my winter wardrobe &…
Wondering: if I need any more cosy jumpers
Making : a mental list of all the things I need to get done for the rest of this week
Deciding: on what to wear when we go out this evening – we’re using one of JB’s birthday presents
Wishing: I had enough pennies in the bank that I could buy a Gucci or Chanel handbag – it’s on my bucket list before I’m 40
Enjoying: a weekend away for my Dad’s 60th which included my brother & sister. They don’t happen as often as I might like.
Waiting: to see if I get my hands on the elusive M&S Beauty calendar this year!
Liking: the morning cuddle I get from Connie every day…she sits at my side in the office & launches herself onto my lap
Wondering: what on earth we’re going to buy everyone for Christmas this year. It’s so tricky to be original!
Loving: being my own boss and having the flexibility I never used to have
Considering: where else I’d like to holiday…travel is constantly on my mind
Buying: nothing for us!! Need to crack on with the Christmas shopping
Hoping: that I make it through the busy work period that is on the horizon
Marvelling: at how quickly the long weekend came & went
Needing: another holiday!
Questioning: how on earth these male ‘celebrities’ think they’re behaviours will go unnoticed
Smelling: the candle that’s trying to mask the smell of curry (not a takeaway I might add!)
Wearing: no makeup
Following: I’d actually like some more ThirtyPlus bloggers to follow so if you’ve got any recommendations that would be great!
Noticing: how many things we’ve already got pencilled in the diary for 2018
Knowing: that I need to up at the crack of dawn tomorrow for a breakfast meeting
Thinking: how difficult some of these prompts have been!
Admiring: my friend Anna – she’s had a tough 2017 & I don’t know how she’s managed to get through it
Sorting: the endless amounts of ‘stuff’ we have in this house – there’s only so much stuff we need!
Getting: excited for our trip to New Zealand at the end of this year
Disliking: the colder weather that’s crept in! I’m def a summer girl
Opening: the endless amounts of junk emails & blocking or unsubscribing
Feeling: like I’m almost back at 100% after being beyond poorly last week
Snacking: I definitely need to curb the snacking!!
Hearing: the dog gently snoring next to me
