taking stock: May & Makealong update



Making: Pebble Beach shawlette for the Cftc Makealong. Have had to start over this week as I think I was twisting my purl stitches after the lace rows. Back on track now and at the 10% mark!

Drinking: Twinings lemon green tea.
Reading: Captain Corelli's Mandolin (still!)
Wanting: to find the right place to live. Please!
Looking: on Rightmove and Gumtree, all day every day. Ugh. 
Playing: with Annie Sloan chalk paint for the first time. 
Deciding: whether or not I absolutely need to use wax to seal the chalk paint. Any thoughts?
Wishing: I could paint ALL THE THINGS!
Enjoying: having a bit of a clear out.
Waiting: for my breakfast to go down so I can head out for a run.
Liking: that our bathroom geranium is budding again. 
Wondering: if our tiny, weary houseplants need re-potting.
Loving: that Carly Rae Jepson video with actual Tom Hanks. Wut? 
Pondering: approx ten billion haircuts on Pinterest. 
Considering: getting my hair chopped off. It's like wearing a hat and scarf all the time!
Buying: eggs.
Watching: 3rd Rock from the Sun on Netflix. And the latest GoT.
Hoping: for healing.
Marvelling: at the difference sunshine makes to a day. 
Cringing: at my peely shoulders - got stupidly sunburnt last weekend.
Needing: to see for myself whether Poldark really is all that. 
Questioning: injustice. 
Smelling: Nuxe goodies from my in-laws. 
Wearing: my hair in a plait. 
Following: what's happening at Knit Fandango on Instagram. 
Noticing: the days getting longer. 
Knowing: we're leaving this flat in about a month. Eep.
Thinking: about splashing out on a pair of Saltwaters.
Admiring: new mums who are acing motherhood.
Sorting: junk we don't need.
Getting: a bit stressed.
Bookmarking: recipes for a certain husband's birthday cake.
Coveting: other people's fab hair.
Disliking: having to dress for all four seasons at once. 
Opening: waaay more tabs than I need.
Giggling: with Mr P.
Feeling: overwhelmed and a bit worn out.
Snacking: on peanut butter rice cakes.
Hearing: bells and birdsong from the bathroom. Will miss it.
