And just like that, somehow its May. The fifth month of this year already. The month I’ll get to meet my new niece/nephew, Ant & Flic’s baby.
Making: the most out of our girls being little.
Cooking: blender banana bread because brown bananas. again.
Reading: Primary School Confidential. I can’t tell you how cool I feel reading a book written by friends!
Wanting: the pep of the Energiser Bunny (without the battery enema).
Looking: for an egg/pod chair to read in.
Playing: endless games of Family Feud with the Big Sister.
Wishing: I had enough energy to do all the things I want to do.
Enjoying: nights in our newly acquired 1972 Viscount caravan.
Deciding: on what to name the van.
Waiting: to share more exciting news about the cookbook.
Liking: that the dams filled last night. We now have enough water to plant to replant some paddocks.
Wondering: what the week will bring.
Pondering: if 11am is too early for lunch.
Watching: an excavator clean up after last night’s ferocious storm.
Hoping: the bill isn’t astronomical.
Marvelling: that the storm shook the pictures from ours walls
Needing: an afternoon nap.
Smelling: freshly mopped floors.
Wearing: mum shorts.
Following: Mum and Dad’s Scotland adventure on WhatsApp.
Knowing: David would be loving that Mum can WhatsApp.
Noticing: there are never enough hours in the day.
Thinking: about the wonderfully horrible gifts the Little Sister is likely to choose at the kindy Mother’s Day stall.
Admiring: Justin Trudeau.
Considering: moving to Canada (soley for proximity to Mr Trudeau).
Sorting: through the girls’ baby stuff for my new niece/nephew.
Buying: things on the internet to save braving the shops.
Getting: another load of washing done while the sun is out.
Bookmarking: an online course I’ve started by Monash University about Food as Medicine.
Disliking: Spearmint and alfalfa tea - it came in a lovely Christmas hamper and unlike the rest of the lovely contents, it tastes ghastly.
Opening: other tea.
Giggling: at the Met Gala outfits. I feel like the kid in the ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’; the world is gasping at their beautiful frocks and I think they look like they’re all off to fancy dress party dressed as the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz.
Feeling: excited about meeting my new niece/nephew this month.
Snacking: too often (hence mum shorts).
Coveting: a personal masseuse.
Helping: a friend thrash out ideas for an exciting new business idea.
Hearing: frogs calling from the creek. The rain has brought the dam AND their ardour up.
how is May shaping up for you?
