Taking Stock

Yeah yeah, months of nothing. In my defense I wrote a really great blog post about a month ago and then wordpress ate it. That was pretty disappointing!

Anyway, to kick things back off, I’ve stolen this from Laura, just having a look at where I am right now and hopefully a little bit of where I’m hoping to be.

Making: Chia pudding with Lewis Road organic double cream. I would drink that stuff straight, no lie.
Cooking: Not as much as I should be. This month is about being good and cooking more!
Drinking: A lot of Pepsi Max
Reading: The Church of Marvels – Leslie Parry, look out for a review soon!
Wanting: For my life to stop feeling like it’s in limbo.
Looking:ย Like five bucks. My skin is breaking out again and I’m not planning to leave the house today so I’m not brushing my hair.
Playing:ย Banished! It’s a cool city building/survival game.
Wishing:ย That I could eat all the McFlurries in the world and not get fat.
Enjoying: An extra day off. Hooray long weekends!
Waiting: for everything. I feel like I’m in a perpetual state of waiting.
Liking: My $6 blanket from The Warehouse. Cozy, fuzzy and warm!
Wondering: About things that will only hold me back.
Loving: Wendy’s Taco Salads.
Pondering: How to be more productive in winter.
Considering: Giving up Facebook. It just makes me sad and angry.
Watching: Arrested Development and Bojack Horseman
Hoping: For something to break me out of my funk.
Marveling: At how different my life was this time last year.
Needing: A change.
Wearing: Ponte pants all day err day.
Following: Corrine from FrockAndRoll
Noticing: How cold my fingers feel.
Knowing: I have the power to control my life
Thinking: That most of these prompts are essentially the same thing and feel a bit redundant.
Admiring: People who can get up before 7:30 in the mornings.
Sorting: Out my life.
Buying: Only the essentials. No impulse shopping!
Getting: Hungry. I think that Chia pudding is almost set!
Bookmarking: Keto recipies.
Disliking: Twitter. Just, no.
Opening: OneNote, ready to brainstorm blog stuff.
Giggling: At my boyfriend playing Witcher 3. Every now and then a character farts and you hear another character giggle.
Feeling: Like I need to stop being lazy.
Snacking: On nothing. Snacking is almost impossible with Invisalign.
Coveting: A debt-free status.
Helping: I just realised what an unhelpful person I am. Deep.
Hearing: As above, my boyfriends game.

  • I’m relating to so many of these, most especially wanting to stop feeling like your life is in limbo and how sad and angry facebook is making me *sigh*

    • PS Welcome back! xo

      • Thanks! Here’s hoping we can both find out how to take back control of our lives and point them in the direction we want to go. So much easier said than done.

  • I feel like I’m constantly crawling out of debt! It’s so easy to get into and so hard to get out of. Like how gaining weight is easy and losing it is hard haha. welcome back to blogland ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yess. I’ve been in debt constantly since 2007. It’s a pretty heavy weight in my shoulders. And yes, gaining weight is so easy. Losing it is so hard. So so so hard. ๐Ÿ™

      • I finally paid off my overdraft after having it since I started uni in 2009, and it was such a weight off my shoulders. I hope you can get there too!

        • I’ll get there. It’s going to take me about 3 years of very careful budgeting though. I’m gonna be doing a post about it later this week actually! ๐Ÿ˜€ If you’re interested I’d like to pick your brains for a “tips on getting debt free” collab post in future?

  • Love this idea ๐Ÿ™‚
    Also, YES to OneNote, and SAME to breaking out. Sigh. Seriously, I swear pimples were supposed to be a teenage-only thing.
    Did you enjoy/are you enjoying Church of Marvels (just kidding, I’ll wait for your review)? I finished it over the weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’m about halfway at the moment. I’m feeling a bit lost so far, but still enjoying it.

      • I felt the quite lost too. But I think I enjoyed it overall. Three stars I think I gave it. Looking forward to hearing your final thoughts about it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lizzy

    Love this post x that chia seed pudding sounds delicious, and I’m about to start reading church of marvels so can’t wait to see your thoughts on it ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    • So delicious and so simple. 1.5 – 2 table spoons of chia seeds and 150ml of cream. mix and put in the fridge for an hour or so. DONE! Serve with fruit if you want. Blueberries or strawberries go really nicely!

  • Lol, had no idea Witcher 3 had farts! Ivan bought it this weekend, and he got a better edition of Bioshock Infinite for me, so we’re playing with headphones on and I can’t hear his game. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • HAhaha you’re missing out! I only heard it about 3 times but I cracked up each time. I don’t know how I managed to hear that but cancel out the rest of the game.

      Hope Ivan enjoys it. Sam just finished it yesterday and said he really loved it!
