A little round-up of what’s up!

Today I thought I’d do a little round-up of what’s up in Mumpty’s thoughts/life … if only so I can look back at in six month’s time and see what’s changed!  So, here goes:

Doing: ♥ lots of blogging and writing after hours helping our daughter train her lamb Daisy for Ag Day;   admin-ing on Makeup Obsessives practicing my winged eyeliner technique; Dukan’in it! making lists; smiling, laughing and just having fun!

Wanting: ♥ all.the.things! a frightening number of dresses and cardigans from Pinup Girl Clothing; new Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation; my Revitalash to arrive; MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick;  Lime Crime Velvetine in Red Velvet something in the Damier range by Louis Vuitton; my blog to get LOTS more followers!; a Range Rover Evoque;  Christian Louboutin shoes  … I know, I know … it’s the little things!  OK, I am going to stop right now! 

Reading: I just finished “Screw You Dolores” by our very own Sarah-Kate Lynch; I just re-read “Burlesque/Fetish and the Art of the Tease” by the spectacular Dita von Teese;  and I am currently reading “The Shoe Queen – a tale of forbidden love and must-have shoes” by Anna Davis.

Eating: Cold roast chicken; Coke Zero; poached eggs on spinach (yes, I am on Dukan!); I am very much looking forward to a “cheat meal” of Thai food that is being cooked for me on Friday night for our staff get-together!

Loving: pretty much everything mentioned in “doing” above but especially writing – I’m really enjoying that; rainbows; sunsets; it nearly being Daylight Savings;  fond memories of people I loved who have passed; our dog Bayley; our daughter being all grown up and getting herself on the bus to school and back every day; fabulous interviews with amazing woman; inspirational quotes; entering competitions  clever, savvy friends; a supportive partner; endless possibilities!

Sending all the love to:  Caroline at Beautiful Life with Cancer; and Jennifer from My name is Jennifer and I have breast cancer – I don’t personally know either of these women, but they are both living with cancer in the most spirited and purposeful manner – I can’t even comprehend what they are each going through, but my heart goes out to them both.

Proud of:  our daughter is doing a solo in the school production; my friend Kirsty Leigh from Makeup Obsessives got through to the finals for Westpac’s Millennial Women of Influence competition (you can vote for her here if you’d like!)

Obsessed with: Tudor history and related Tudor historical fiction (yes, Philippa Gregory is my idol!)

Grateful for: my family; my friends; my job; our health success and happiness – for everyone; plus all of the above!

Love …

Mumpty
