It’s been so long since I blogged, I forgot my password! I didn’t intend to not blog for this long, but life sorta just happened and here we are and it’s November! WTAF?!
So I thought I’d ease back into blog land and take stock once again, inspired by Pip from Meet Me At Mikes.
Taking Stock is such a great way to look back at the month that was, breathe it all in and brace for the silly season. Here we go…
Taking Stock: October 2016
Making: French knitting with Miss 7 – not sure what we’re making yet!
Cooking: Not much lately… there’s been a lot of take-away
Drinking: A new sleepytime tea blend my bro gave me for my birthday

Wishing: That the tragic events in Dreamworld last week never happened
Enjoying: Spring time BBQ’s and beers. Tis the season!
Waiting: For my lottery numbers to come up
Liking: All my friends Halloween photos in my feed tonight
Wondering: What several actually means. Is it 7ish of something or more than 1 of something? (current argument with the huz)
Loving: That our Labrador is out of confinement after her knee surgery. It’s been 6 weeks of trying to keep her still!
Pondering: What to do with my life now that The Bachelorette is finished? #teammatty

Buying: Cami’s from Cotton On. In every colour!
Hoping: To find time to connect with friends more often
Marvelling: That my little man is starting school next year. He’s sooo ready!
Cringing: When I think about the amount of lollies my kids came home with after Trick or Treating. Note to self – make dentist appointments!
Needing: To get the car serviced. It’s a few months overdue!
Questioning: Everything lately!
Smelling: Essential oils in my diffuser – today’s blend is Clary Sage, Frankincense, Wild Orange & Rosemary
Wearing: Can’t wait to wear my birthday pressie from the Huz – this beauty from my fave Spell & The Gypsy Collective
Following: Instagram stories. All the Instagram stories!
Noticing: How few flexible (part time) jobs are advertised!
Knowing: That this could be the last year we can use Santa bribes
Admiring: All the Telstra Business Women’s Award winners. So inspiring
Sorting: Kids clothes and realising how lucky they are to get a new wardrobe pretty much every season
Getting: Ready excited for summer and wearing OTS tops!
Bookmarking: Articles on essential oils
Coveting: Kitchen and open plan living… one day!
Disliking: Trolls. So much going on lately in blog land
Opening: New boxes of tea from T2 that a gorgeous friend bought me for my birthday
Giggling: At Master 5… “Daddy, you’re not the boss. Mummy is and so is Santa”.
Feeling: Tired at this time of year. Overwhelm is creeping in
Snacking: Baby cucumbers
Helping: Miss 7 with her homework. It takes so freakin long! Tell me it gets easier??!!
Hearing: Passenger’s new album on Spotify on repeat!
