Checking In: April
Making : I've returned to some old unfinished cross-stitch WIPs in the hope of transforming them into finished objects before the end of the decade... watch this space :) I've also returned to my granny square gilet, maybe it will be finished by next winter!
Cooking : Nothing, but having yummy enchiladas cooked for me by my wonderful hubby.
Drinking : Options hot chocolate
Reading: The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles. Absolutely amazing and very different to what I was expecting.
Wanting: To find my dream job. I don't know what it is mind, but finding it would be rather nice.
Looking: forward to some free time :)
Deciding: Which words in my monstrously long thesis need to be cut so that I don't send my examiners to sleep.
Enjoying: The beautiful blossoms of Spring.
Wondering: When the first BBQ will be.
Loving: The fact Lent is over and I can reward myself with chocolate again.
Pondering: Where should we live? Do we stay or do we go? How far? This country?
Buying: Still nothing. Maybe a wowcher holiday when payday comes :)
Watching: The Masters. Not through choice.
Hoping: It gets sunnier again after some torrential downpours today.
Marvelling: At all the lambs in the fields! They appeared so quickly, almost like magic! (I'm sure the Mama sheep wouldn't agree with me there!)
Needing: A good night's sleep, I'm still struggling in the good quality sleep department.
Wearing: My SPRING clothes, it's nearly time for the big winter-summer wardrobe switch :)
Knowing: Freedom is not so very far away now.
Thinking: About post-war East and West German literary and filmic representations of Wehrmacht soldiers. Again, not really through choice any more.
Sorting: out the study - the house needs quite a spring clean.
Getting: Excited about out trip to Wales in May.
Coveting: Some time to use up all of the wool that is really irritating hubby at the moment... we may have reached the limit (!)
Opening: A big can of worms by mentioning the wool.
Feeling: At peace. Amazingly.
Hearing: A cat purr. From my lap and blocking easy access to my laptop but she's happy so I'm being accommodating!
