Recently I found a new-to-me blog, Home Life Simplified, and I am just in time to join in with a new project there, Listmania. You love lists too, right? I love lists.
I'm aiming to link up each week, and hope that it'll help me to blog more. Oh, and I'm also doing it because it'll be fun (for me, at any rate).
I'm a bit late for the first one, but here goes...
Currently I am:
Reading: The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood, the January edition of Reader's Digest (UK) and a free copy of Heat magazine that I got at the airport. Although I hardly know who any of the 'celebrities' in it are...
Listening to: the peace and quiet of our living room once the boys are asleep. The air-conditioner is whirring, the kettle is about to boil, and H is clicking his mouse (that's not a euphemism)...
Laughing at: T's sense of humour. He likes to deliberately get it wrong when you ask him to touch his head/ears/nose/whatever, and to try every hole in the shape-sorter (murmuring 'no, no') until finally choosing the right one (yes!). The other day, in the car, he pointed to a random man walking down the street and called 'Daddy! Daddy!' I played along, asking 'Is that Daddy?' He looked at me as if I was a fool, and dead-panned 'No'.
Swooning over: my new diary. I realise that's pretty pathetic, but I love choosing my new diary for the year, and have strict likes/dislikes; this particular one is perfect.
Planning: lots of decluttering, some classes and a collection 'party' to gather clothes to send to tsunami survivors.
Eating lots of: chocolate from Christmas. When I was a child, I once eeked it out until Easter.
Feeling: pleased that I did my first walk/jog today and that it wasn't too strenuous.
Discovering: that I really do feel better if I go to bed earlier.
Looking at: a big pile of catalogues, aiming to at least flick thorough them before they expire at the end of February. And, in the daytime, snow-capped Mount Daisen.
Wearing: jeans, 2 pairs of socks, slippers, black T-shirt, dark red checked shirt, beige pullover and grey zip-up hoodie. It's pretty cold here, you know.
Cooking: whatever Yoshikei delivers to me. Tonight it was stir-fried pork and vegetables, and potato salad.
Wondering: if I'll be able to make it to the last 3 university sessions without having to face snow.
Trying out: waffle recipes, after finally buying a new sandwich toaster with waffle plates too. Got a good recipe? Let me know.
That's it! If you like this kind of thing, you can find links to what other people wrote for this here.
