Checking In: September
Making: Finally crocheting the border of my scrappy granny square blanket, reveal post now on the horizon
Cooking: I've been doing quite a lot of baking, including cherry cake (C's favourite). This weekend we had friends staying and I made a fish pie from a Mary Berry Cookbook. Yum.
Drinking: Beer brewed by hubby (in the evenings I hasten to add. Not all day)
Reading: Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier - really enjoying this so far.
Wanting: A job. I have applications lined up, and an interview tomorrow but my main problem is I don't really know what I want to do!
Looking: Forward to a couple of days in Lisbon with C for his birthday.
Deciding: What to pack, hand luggage restrictions apply...
Enjoying: This beautiful weather. We walked to Burghley House yesterday (pic above) and just marvelled at the beautiful park, grounds and buildings.
Waiting: For some birthday presents for C to arrive, I hope they come soon!
Liking: Having some spare time.
Wondering: What happens next.
Loving: I had a few days at home last week (Charlie our cocker spaniel is in the pic above) and had some time with the family, C came for some of it and we cooked for everyone for my parents' wedding anniversary. I love family time.
Pondering: Whether to start a new crochet project. Head (and C) say no. Heart says yes.Buying: Mostly food at the moment. Yum.
Watching: I have finally become addicted to Downton Abbey and am making my way through the early series.
Hoping: That my exam date for my thesis is set soon, I want to know when to start preparing/panicking
Marvelling: At pictures of the lunar eclipse/blood moon yesterday
Needing: A bit more exercise. I have become very lazy of late.
Smelling: Our yankee candle in the sitting room. mmmm. Meadow Blossom I think.
Wearing: Crochet cowls again :)
Noticing: Earlier nights and later mornings
Admiring: A new hair cut, rather drastic by my boring standards!
Sorting: Out. Everything. At my parents' house, home, time to declutter.
Getting: A little bit excited about Christmas. Sorry.
Bookmarking: Lots of crochet shawl patterns on ravelry.
Feeling: Ok. Optimistic. Relaxed.
Snacking: Cake. Lots of cake. And hummus. Not together though
Helping: C with his accounts. Maths is not my forte!
Hearing: Listening to my favourite German band, The Wise Guys.
