Taking Stock in February

Broken Hill, NSW


I know it's almost March but I have been swept up in the back to school and the business of being a teacher this month so it is passing me by quickly!

I have seen these Taking Stock lists from Pip over at Meet Me at Mike's on a few of the blogs I read and I really enjoy reading them so I thought I would give on a go.

Making : a herb garden for preschool
Cooking : Michelle Bridges 12wbt dinners to address the holiday cheer
Drinking :
Reading: everything! I have just finished the new Katie Fforde, "A Vintage Wedding"
Wanting: a backpack to take on my upcoming holiday
Looking: for inspiration to give my sitting room a freshen up
Playing: with the manual settings on my camera
Deciding: how to deal with different currencies while on holiday
Wishing: it was a little easier to shift the last two kgs!
Enjoying: playing with my new editing program Lightroom
Waiting: for mail from overseas. Sometimes it takes a very long time to come.
Liking: my new Frankie4 shoes
Wondering: what kind of jacket I will need in Europe. How cold is it in spring?
Loving: the odd day to myself while I am not at work and the kids are at school
Pondering: how to fit everything in and not become too ragged around the edges
Considering: if I will be able to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel while it is still at the cinema
Buying: nothing at the moment. I am trying to curb my internet shopping habit to save some holiday spending money
Watching: Broadchurch on ABC. I am hooked!

Hoping: for a good year. Last year took its toll
Marvelling: at how fast my newest niece is growing

Cringing: thinking about long haul flights with children
Needing: to drink more water! I am very bad at this!
Smelling: herbs...which ones are the best for kids to grow, smell and taste?
Wearing: hats. I love them but rarely wear them, until now
Following: a lot of travel photographers on Instagram
Noticing: how my children are growing up, and how they still need to be children at the same time

Thinking: about my overseas adventure...constantly! I'm EXTREMELY excited!
Admiring: people who can make fondant icing cooperate

orting: through my cupboards. It's time to de-clutter
Buying: resources for my classroom
Getting: organised
Bookmarking: blogs with tips for photography
Palas jewellery
Disliking: the business of lunchboxes
Opening: lots of research articles relating to Early Childhood
Giggling: at some of the things
my new friends at preschool say
Feeling: inspired by clever people on Instagram
Snacking: ummm...trying not to!
Comforting: children at work
Wishing: for more Sundays
Helping: at Girl Guides. I love it!
Hearing: the kids playing in the pool. I think I might join them!

I hope that something on my list inspires you, makes you laugh or encourages you to take stock too!
Happy weekend
