|Don't let the puffy jackets fool you. The weather has been so humid. But the rain has come, thankfully.|
Making : jam, from scratch pasta sauce to freeze and use this weekend with meatballs.....and a mess in my very small kitchen.
Cooking : pasta, pizza, roast chicken and stews. The rain has set in and I'm enjoying cooking warming and filling meals.
Drinking : tea as always and milo (hot chocolate), rainy weather always makes me want hot chocolate.
Reading: NZ Gardener magazine (a Birthday gift subscription - such a great idea) and "The truth about you" by Susan Lewis - a good light girlie read.
Wanting: a dryer. Keep telling Mr H it's a need not a want. We are only a few days into the rain and the washing is piling up already.
Looking: at flights online to Brisbane, really want to visit my sister.
Playing: with the racing track. When set up it takes up the entire lounge. Keeps the boys entertained for ages. And I'm an ace at Lego building too now.
Deciding: on what to plant next.
Wishing: Mr H would hurry up and paint the toilet and bathroom.
Enjoying: My childfree mornings. The time goes so quickly though.
Waiting: for Mr H to paint the toilet and bathroom.
Liking: my pink flamingo fairy lights.
Wondering: when the cold weather will set in.
Loving: our chickens, their eggs and their quirky personalities.
Pondering: where and when for a child free night away with Mr H.
Considering: painting the toilet and bathroom myself!
Watching: Mr Selfridge on TVNZ on Demand. And True Crime Stories, which spook me, but doesn't stop me from watching them over and over again.
Hoping: to start sewing more and using my newly acquired skills. I've finished sew school and loved it. Most of my spare time is spent in the garden at the moment.
Marvelling: at what Tom is learning at school. He is like a sponge.
Needing: new shoes. Went to the podiatrist who insists I stop wearing jandals (flip flops).
Smelling: star gazer lilies - popped into the trolley with the weekly shop.
Wearing: short sleeves still.
Following: the Royal Tour - anyone else a little obsessed. Just wish the weather was a little better for them.
Noticing: how tall Bell is getting, she pretty much fits my shoes now, and I don't have small feet.
Knowing: good things come to those who wait...........
Thinking: I STILL need to go to bed a little earlier.
Admiring: how easily George has settled in to Kindy. It's like he has always been there.
Sorting: my material stash and the bottom of our wardrobe.
Buying: birthday presents, swap goodies and winter clothes.
Getting: good night sleeps........finally...........most nights.
Bookmarking: winter warming recipes.
Disliking: poo patrol when it's wet, yuck!
Opening: homemade jam and overseas packages.
Giggling: at our guinea pigs - such funny little things. Can't believe the noises they make!
Snacking: on Roma tomatoes with sea salt and cracked pepper.
Coveting: pretty leather ankle boots for winter.
Wishing: I was heading to Oz this weekend for a good friends wedding.
Helping: Bell with her English homework but not her Maths. It is beyond me. She goes straight to Mr H for the Maths work.
Hearing: rain, lots and lots of rain.
