Making: sure that I put the right colour bins out on Thursday night.
Cooking: for myself. Hubby and daughter have already moved north.
Drinking: way too much alcohol. Still. I’m loving all of these farewell thingies.
Reading: Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment by Isabel Losada. I’m such an Eat Pray Love sort of girl, so how did I not know about this one? My neighbour’s daughter brought it over the other night for me and I devoured it on my afternoon commutes.
Wanting: to be in Queensland with my family instead of at work down here.
Looking: forward to visiting my family in Queensland. I’m heading up for my birthday weekend.
Deciding: whether the container I’ve pulled out of the freezer is leftover bolognaise sauce or leftover chilli con carne.
Wishing: I’d made more time for the gym this month… Yep, same as last month.
Enjoying: the space and quiet at home, but missing my family like mad.
Waiting: for my turn to move.
Liking: the new pooch Paddy on this series of Midsomer Murders.
Wondering: why they killed off Sykes in Midsomer Murders. Sorry if that’s a spoiler alert.
Loving: the new look of this site.
Pondering: Cook Islands or Samoa. I know…one thing at a time…but a girl can dream, right?
Listening: to Gustav Holst’s The Planets – as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. You weren’t expecting me to say that, were you?
Considering: why my husband would be looking at a clothes dryer that has wifi capability.
Buying: nothing. Apparently hubby is managing enough of that as he and Miss almost 19 set up temporary house.
Hoping: he doesn’t buy the wi-fi dryer
Marvelling: that someone thought to pop in wifi capability when they were designing a clothes dryer
Cringing: at the thought of an app on my phone that would allow me to turn on the dryer remotely at some point after loading it. Yep. Seriously. Why?
Needing: to get over the dryer thing.
Questioning: when I can fit in the whole moving more thing.
Smelling: the coconut and lime diffuser my neighbour’s daughter gave me. It smells like the tropics.
Wearing: a cotton maxi skirt, t-shirt and bare feet. In case you’re interested, a couple of my toenails are beginning to grow back. Eeeeeeeeeuw? Too much information?
Following: my insta follows this month were, as usual, a mix of travel photographers, sunny coast peeps, kiwi peeps and a couple of writerly friends. Including:
Noticing: that my dog has developed a liking for ice cubes.
Knowing: that as I write this (5pm on a Friday afternoon) it’s almost wine o’clock.
Thinking: that I might mix myself a negroni instead.
Admiring: the powers that be at Trip Advisor for ranking Mooloolaba Beach at no 8 in Australia..
Getting: excited about Mooloolaba Beach being my morning walk soon.
Bookmarking: so much – you mean you haven’t been following my weekly wraps?
Disliking: having to put my own bins out. Yes, I know that I’ve been seriously spoilt.
Opening: the freezer container and finding that it’s chilli and not the bolognaise I took a guess on.
Giggling: at a very rude joke my friend just sent me on Facebook message.
Feeling: surprisingly ok about living on my own for these few weeks.
Hearing: my dog crunch on ice-cubes.
Celebrating: goodbyes – or rather the privilege of having people to say goodbye to.
Pretending: not to be sad about the whole goodbye thing.
Embracing: lots of people – the up-side of goodbyes.
