Checking In: November
Making : Christmas Owls: I'm using the now iconic pattern from Bunny Mummy and am in absolute awe at how clear the instructions are and how wonderful the finished object is! The little chap in the picture is perched on my desk and cheering me up as I tackle some much needed editing of thesis.
Drinking : Peppermint tea, trying to become less caffeine-dependent ;)
Reading: This question always depresses me.... 'Homemade Men in Postwar Austrian Cinema' by Maria Fritsche. I long for the days when I will be able to read for pleasure :)
Wanting: Well, to read for pleasure now...
Looking: forward to Christmas (sorry!)
Wishing: There were more hours in the day
Enjoying: The fact that the weekends in the foreseeable future will be spent at home sweet home
Wondering: Where I'll be this time next year
Loving: How my crochet hot water bottle cover is turning out so far
Watching: The TV series 'Damages' starring Glenn Close. We'd never heard of it before but it was recommended on Netflix, and it really is very watchable!
Hoping: That I will meet my chapter deadline on Friday before friends visit for the weekend.
Marvelling: This beautiful blanket pattern on Betsy Makes
Needing: Some more time with my friends
Wearing: My UGG boots. These were a lovely present from family friends in Australia last year, despite them being exceedingly popular during my years as an undergraduate I'd never bought any. I'm not really a follower of fashion and I think they make some people waddle like ducks. But then I put my pair on and it was a moment of revelation. Feet covered in cotton wool sensations, and oh so toasty. Quack.
Noticing: How the pretty autumn leaves are now rather sludgy following all the rain
Sorting: out all of my accumulated crafty belongings... I have no idea where they're all coming from!
Buying: Felt for some decorations.... yes, that is where they are coming from, the internet...
Snacking: Banana Bread, normally I can never make this as my monkey husband eats all the bananas. But I hid some *evil wife grin*
Coveting: Some stylecraft yarn to make Attic 24's new blanket pattern... but, I still have two other blankets to finish, and really not much space...
Helping: myself to banana bread :)
Hearing: Classic FM, my favourite Sunday afternoon music option
