Well it’s been awhile between drinks. And by drinks, I mean blog posts. Does anyone else get the song ‘It’s Been Awhile’ by alternative metal band ‘Staind’ (no I didn’t wikipedia that, I am completely across metal bands of the 90’s) stuck in their heads when they read the line ‘it’s been awhile’? Just me? Rightio then. But yes, it has been awhile but I’m hoping to be showing my face back around these parts on a more regular basis from this day forth.

I thought a classic ‘Taking Stock‘ post might be a nice way to ease back into things. I’m hoping to write one each month as I find them a great way to keep a handle on what’s happening in our little corner of the world and I also enjoy reading them back as they remind me of where we were and where we are now.

So without further ramblings, here’s what I’m taking stock of this month.

Making : Plans. Plans for our future. Career plans. Holiday plans. I’m in cray cray planning mode lately it seems.

Cooking : A hell of a lot! Getting back to basics in the kitchen. Cleaning up our diets. Re-kindling my love of cooking from scratch and creating new things to share with my family. This week it’s been chorizo and bean stew and Lindt + Peanut butter cookies.

Drinking : An almost empty glass of Sauv Blanc from a bottle that my best friend and I opened on Sunday night after Ollie’s third birthday party.

Reading: The Little Veggie Patch Co

Wanting: More time to play in the garden and work on our veggie patch.

Looking: At life a little differently.

Playing: Jack Johnson

Wasting: Time on social media when I should be sleeeeeping!

Wishing: I had an extra pair of hands

Enjoying: Watching my kids become friends. It’s heart melting stuff

Waiting: For the right person to come onto my radar to kickstart a project I’ve been thinking about for a very long time.

Liking: Life!

Wondering: When Evie will sprout her first tooth.

Loving: Seeing hard work get rewarded.

Hoping: That the rain stops soon lest my children go nuts and my fledgling veggie crop drowns.

Marvelling: At Olli’e’s newfound potty training skillz

Needing: A haircut.. desperately

Smelling: Eucalyptus from the bottle of multipurpose cleaner Ollie dumped over his potty and the floor to ‘clean them’ with.

Wearing: PJ pants and a stripy henley

Following: Instagram

Noticing: Small moments

Knowing: That we made the right choice in moving out of the city

Thinking: That our holiday to Noosa is way too far away.

Feeling: Content

Bookmarking: Everything gardening and chicken keeping related

Opening: My laptop more frequently

Giggling: At my kids. They are freaking hilarious.
