Doing, wanting, reading, eating, loving …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!
