Taking Stock 05

Can you believe it’s already October? When I think about how fast this year has flown by I feel very nervous. Christmas is just around the corner, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be working this year. Unfortunately the emergency department never sleeps and someone has got to man the desk so pretty sure I’ll be rocking a Santa hat at work on December 25. I’m pretty upset/annoyed about it but I guess I’ve just got to suck it up – at least I’m not a patient in the hospital! With a new season and more fun on the way I though it was time to take stock.


Making: new friends! That is the best kind of making.
Cooking: steak with IKEA meatball sauce and BLT’s… Oh man.

Loving: Bon Iver. And my blog organiser. And the girl at the work coffee shop – I feel like she knows exactly when I’ll be there every morning and my coffee is ready!
Pondering: getting a trim!
Considering: another cup of tea.
Watching: Big Brother. And other crappy crap TV – it’s my escape!
Hoping: for a few things I’ve been hoping for lately.
Marvelling: a few outfit posts on Suger Coat It – go girl!
Needing: a massage!
Smelling: my tea, it’s strong!
Wearing: striped tee, zebra print PJ pants. Sexy combo, I know!
Following: @pedestriantv, @chictopia and @bec_tougas on Instagram.

Knowing: the weekend is coming!

    I’m wondering how it is you are wishing for confidence. And if you think you lack in it then all that you’ve done thus far is ever more meaningful and brilliant as its no easy task to put yourself out there if confidence is what’s lacking. Well done.

  2. I’m wondering how I can get back to finding time to read all the blogs I love. Since having my week off from social media and the internet where I merged both my blogs my to do list is looking far too long and I can’t seem to get back into the social media swing of things.

    I don’t think you could ever drink too much tea! Hope you get to enjoy some Chrissy fun, I always think of those that work that day.

    • Thanks Annaleis – I’m sure it’ll be a nice day regardless of work. It’s Christmas after all šŸ™‚ thanks for stopping by honey xx

    Tea is wonderful, what’s your fav? I love lady Gray made in a pot. Ever since I was tiny, everything stopped at 4pm fora cup of tea and it is a habit that I still have to this day even when I don’t live at home.

    • I am a fruit tea fan! Anything berry or lemon or apple! So good. But i will pretty much drink ANY tea! It is so nice to take time out to relax and enjoy a cuppa – i am just about ready for one now šŸ˜€

  5. The last thing you need is more confidence – that would be scary! Yay for Xmas, family dinner at my house šŸ˜˜
