Taking Stock: April

April 8, 2016

I haven’t done Taking Stock for a while. I think I have been busying myself hanging out and admiring the view and having quiet and fun times and just staying on top of work and fam. But enough of that. Well… just for a tick. It’s time to take my own pulse, doing and feeling and being-style! (Maybe you want to do this too?! You can just write it longhand in a notebook – or cut and paste to Facebook,…

I haven’t done ‘Taking Stock’ for bloody ages! I’ve been too busy trying to keep all the balls in the air with moving and working and book-type-things. That’s reason enough to slow things down for a tiny while and document just where I’m up to, I think. Here’s what’s happening in my neck of the woods…! Making : Many, many cups of tea (Madura English Breakfast is my current fave!) Cooking : Mushrooms and tomatoes for breakfast (with heaps of…

this week

  Hello petals. Hope things are good with you. Things are okay with me. It’s been a bit of a rough week, but I am hopeful that it’s all going to turn around. There’s been some discussion online – in the online community I am part of – partly about same sex marriage and rainbows – but really, actually about identity, sexuality and sin. I’m all for people having their own beliefs and opinions, but when those beliefs insult, dismiss or diminish a…

  It’s time for a little bit of a think-tank-de-moi! A chance to stop, have a cup of tea and work out what is happening in my life, right now. Without further ado, I’m going to do the Take Stock thing. Here’s what’s going on… Making : three different blankets. Oh my gosh. What am I like? Cooking : Family Feast – on Sunday night we had this and it was yummy (we also had meringues!) Drinking : tea and…

Hullo there. How are things with you? Things are good with me, I’ve been doing some fun stuff and feeling the year gather momentum. Can you believe that we’ll be into March in a couple of weeks? I totally CAN NOT. I thought I’d write a taking stock post, before February whizzes by.  There’s almost nothing better than slowing down to think about the things we’re loving and doing and not loving and thinking about… Making : plans to buy…

  Hello Peaches!! It’s time for one of my very favourite things! Taking Stock! Did you know that this exercise is in my upcoming book too?

And this one too! I’m totally into that. It’s such a fun, simple exercise that somehow helps to clear the head AND mark the day. Nice! Here’s my Taking Stock for today:…

I’m still easing into this new year, I think. I’m not sure about it so far, to be honest. I spent a week very ill in bed. Then we had a week of intense heat. And now we have this week and I’m feeling a bit peaky, post heatwave. I think the lack of recuperation time and the lack of sleep has me on the run down back foot.…
