Playing along with Meet Me at Mikes, not stealing broth.
(you might notice my prompts are different, I thought I’d finally get with the updated program!)
Making : At the moment, a little bebe blanket <3
Cooking : Tonight it’s feta tarts with a Two Fat Ladies shortcrust pastry, but lately it’s been a bit ho-hum. The usual muffins. The usual banana cake, broccoli fritters, spaghetti, easy stuff.
Drinking : Wellllll I just went to Margaret River so it was mostly wine and Berocca.
Reading: Literally just finished The Thorn Birds on the plane home and cracked open the What Fresh Hell is This? Dorothy Parker biography last night. I am also revisiting An Everlasting Meal. Sigh.
Trawling: I’m so stalking someone’s Instagram these days. It’s bordering on embarrassing.
Wanting: For summer to REALLY be here. Not pretend summer, like we’ve had pretend Spring in Melbourne this year.
Looking: At all the shells we brought back for the girls.
Deciding: To just do stuff instead of procrastinating. I’ve succeeded for the last two days, but have woken up today with a sore throat and a general feeling of malaise so that was short-lived.
Wishing: That santa brings me lots of cookbooks for Christmas.
Enjoying: The Crown on Netflix.
Waiting: For Christmas, the literal actual total best time of the year.
Liking: The sun
Wondering: What this sore throat is going to turn into and how I’m going to set up the record player for my Friday night Duran Duran if I’ve had to move it to make room for the Christmas tree.
Loving: The dress I wore to the wedding – I’m SO not a floral gal but I was so obsessed with this dress and did not want to take it off at the end of the night.
Pondering: Life, the universe, and everything in it.
Listening: To Radio 4 and revisiting our 90s podcast fave episodes #handbagporkchop
Considering: What I need to do gift-wise for Christmas
Buying: More yarn!
Watching: Well of course the Gilmore Girls revival! I’ve thought about it and I loved it. Also, Two Fat Ladies again.
Hoping: I get tons of work done and can chill this afternoon.
Marvelling: My friends just had a little baby, so marvelling at babies and how we get them out.
Cringing: At the above, and the memory of my nine-pounder making her dramatic entrance.
Needing: To go to bed with soup.
Questioning: How long it will take until the flies finally take over
Wearing: BT Gingham shirt dress and bamboo leggings
Following: @myanmade on Instagram
Noticing: The birds on the telegraph wires. My cat is equal parts terrified and annoyed
Knowing: I should go to bed
Thinking: About how good this weekend is going to be
Admiring: The handcrafted, ethical, sustainable and local cool stuff of @kinfolkandco
Getting: Ideas for our VM gang secret santa.
Bookmarking: Winter fucking sucks and this is hilarious
Opening: My mind. BRB, watching Total Recall.
Giggling: At 1980s sci fi movie graphics
Pretending: Not to notice how dirty my carpet is just after I vacuumed because kids, right? It’s never going to stay clean for long.
Embracing: Kid mess
Gasping: Literally don’t know what to write here.
What have you lot been up to?
