Checking In: March
Making : Mostly Bonnie's blanket and some of my hexies
Cooking : Risotto. Hubbie is away and it's my favourite so I've had it the last two nights
Drinking : Wine. Not all day (!) but a nice cold glass of white to accompany my evening Call the Midwife and crochet sessions (my Friday and Saturday nights are really rock and roll at the moment :))
Reading: Apple Tree Yard by Louise Doughty - very gripping!
Wanting: To go away. We're thinking about going to Munich in May, and then I've just found out there's a hen do in Madrid in July, so not long before I can explore the world a bit more.
Looking: At a blank screen and trying to come up with a conclusion.
Deciding: Whether to take some more work and delay submitting my thesis (again!) or leave the work and power on to submission.
Wishing: It would get a little bit warmer.
Enjoying: The longer days.
Wondering: What happens next.
Loving: The fact that we have lots of flowers in the house at the moment, always guaranteed to cheer me up :)
Pondering: What to do for my birthday (it's not until May but I want something to look forward to!) trip to Norfolk in Bonnie, or week in Pembrokeshire....
Considering: Starting a new granny square project with the yarn I got in Berlin last year and is now just sitting around...
Buying: Nothing, still being good on that front.
Watching: We've started watching Episodes - it's different to what I thought, but still enjoying it!
Cringing: At all the Jeremy Clarkson fuss - I really don't like the man at all!
Needing: A bit of a break
Smelling: Bran loaf, baking away in the oven, I love the smell of cake!
Wearing: A big baggy uni hoody because it's comfy and I'm being a hermit today.
Noticing: All the croci everywhere, I love that purple colour.
Knowing: All about the East German navy - not sure how it will help me in the future, but it's helping me edit a chapter of the future!
Thinking: About my Mum and Nana on Mother's Day.
Admiring: These coasters, they're stunning!
Sorting: Out the house a bit, we need a bit of reorganising at the moment, we both have far too much stuff!
Getting: Restless and a bit frustrated with just how long I'm actually taking to finish my PhD.
Bookmarking: This orange and almond cake from Marion at My Two Girls, I've wanted to make it since I saw it, maybe this week! it looks so scrummy and I love all things orange.
Coveting: I really really want a big bar of chocolate - I've given it up for Lent and am craving it at the moment
Giggling: At this dog, I really really want a dog, I'm hoping once the thesis is in and we've settled down we can get one :)
Feeling: A bit of a mix this month, it's been a strange old year so far.
Snacking: Cherry cake... mmmmmmm....
Comforting: Myself. With cherry cake. It works!!
Hearing: Classic FM, my Sunday soundtrack
