Checking In: May
Making: My first ever granny square cushion cover, started on holiday in Wales (see above pic!)
Cooking: Being cooked for largely as I've resumed my temping role at Leicester uni, tonight was a yummy quorn, mushroom and broccoli risotto (did I mention C is veggie before? I love it and eat mostly veggie too)
Drinking: Tea. Lots of tea, although my new alcoholic tipple of choice is now cider. I've moved on from white wine spritzers ;)
Reading: Just finished 'On Green Dolphin Street' by Sebastian Faulkes, I quite enjoyed it but it wasn't a patch on some of his other work.
Wanting: This thesis break to go on forever. Or a permanent job. Hopefully I'll combine both one day!
Looking: Forward to some 'me time' on Saturday, C is playing cricket and I will have the luxury of a sunny day to myself for the first time this year.
Enjoying: Reading for pleasure, I have a commute in which to dive into my unread books that have been piling up for far too long.
Waiting: For first thesis comments on Monday, not looking forward to that at all.
Liking: My new wooden duck (see above pic). He was bought at the RHS Spring Show at Malvern with C and my MIL. He is called Ed and C only agreed to bring him home because he thought he was an outdoor duck. For an intelligent chap he's quite clueless sometimes. Ed now lives on our fireplace.
Wondering: Whether it will be sunny for our first planned BBQ of the year next Weds, to be fair we've probably jinxed it by planning it!
Loving: The long sunny evenings.
Pondering: Anything and everything, my brain is all of a whir at the moment.
Buying: Nothing, am still being good!
Watching: Britain's got Talent, someone C played cricket with is in it so we're rooting for them!
Marvelling: At our clematis (above) - it flowers for different lengths of time every year, this year it's been a couple of weeks and counting. It's so pretty, I think it's my favourite garden plant.
Needing: More hours in the day!
Wearing: Work clothes... a shock to the system of a scruffy postgrad student!
Thinking: About my Nana a lot at the moment.
Sorting: Clothes, time to put away the winter wardrobe and install the Spring.
Getting: Excited about summer.
Coveting: A yarn winder, my stash is distinctly messy.
Opening: Lots of anniversary cards, we've just passed the first year of marriage!
Snacking: Yummy sultana and cranberry cake made by mum.
Helping: Myself to cake.
Hearing: Olly Murs on Britain's got Talent, not keen on the new song at all.
