Taking Stock in November.

There has been a big change in the past two months which is where I've been - finding my feet again. So here is a little update.

Post inspired by Meet Me at Mikes - Taking Stock.


Making: Wholemeal Spaghetti with the 'most amazing tomato pasta sauce ever' from the freezer.

Cooking: At work - a lot. At home... does reheating frozen curry and pasta sauces count?

Sipping: I just finished an EBT with a couple of TimTams. yum.

Reading: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J Mass. It's the 4th book in a YA Fantasy series I am loving right now. I sped read the first 3 books but taking my time with this one. For reasons I can't keep my eyes open as long at night these days and I don't want the series to end too quickly.

Oh and Alison Roman's new cookbook Nothing Fancy. I'd like to make everything in it. Seriously delicious.

Looking: Forward to Tris being home soon.

Listening: to the birds chirping in the early even light, leaves in the wind and the neighbours kids playing.

Wishing: I could fit in F45 classes into my schedule and not be so scared of being so sore that I can't move/walk the next day at work.

Enjoying: Driving a newer car. There are so many buttons.

Liking: Felafals and dip. I have a new brand to try this week for lunches. Fancy ones from HFM!

Loving: Work. I am loving getting up early while it's still dark outside, working on my feet all day, and that feeling of sitting down for the first time all day.

Buying: Skincare. I'm a skincare junkie.

Watching: Jane the Virgin Season 5 is on Netflix and I am so happy. I love that show. I've also been watching the new season of Outlander but it gets a bit heavy to watch before bed. I need something a little more lighthearted.

& Alison Roman on the NYTimes YouTube channel. Her Thanksgiving episode is great.

Hoping: There are no strong winds this Wednesday when Tris is due home.

Needing: To go to the gym or a run. And to go to a JP and get docs certified to finalise my change of name - adulting stuff.

Wearing: A t-shirt which has TimTam crumbs down the front and board shorts with a cat on my shoulder.


Following: The fires in NSW. It's so sad.

Sorting: saggy singlets. I'm not sure why I have such a collection in my draw. Time for them to go.

Saving: should be...

Giggling: Not right now... but I'm sure I've had a giggle today.

Feeling: hungry.
