Updated taking stock tag

Updated “taking stock” tag …

Hotel selfie from when I was in Christchurch recently for the Pride in Print Awards.

Hello bloggy-verse!  So I haven’t done a “taking stock tag” for a while now – in fact the last one was here – and I do so enjoy them, so here goes – please enjoying reading along to see what’s happening in Mumpty’s little world!

Making: 9 page weekly newsletters for my daughter’s netball team.  She has a super-coach who is taking our team ahead in leaps and bounds and the newsletter is my little contribution.
Cooking: peanut butter banana chocolate brownies (shhhhh … it was one of those endless video recipes off Facebook that I save and then never make – but today I did, and oh.so.good!)
Drinking: if only!  Actually, I am rather enjoying long blacks with full cream – they are ketogenic too!
Reading: “The Shadow Year” by Hannah Richell.  I have just finished it and it is one of the BEST books I’ve read – ever. Read it – you’ll love it! So twisty-turny and full of promise!
Wanting:  someone I love to get better quickly.  And I’m always wanting more frocks and more Louis of course – that’s the shallow, frivolous part of me.  The serious part of me wants the world to be a safer, happier place for my daughter and her generation to grow up in.
Looking: for opportunities.
Playing: on Facebook and Instagram before I go to sleep. Pretty sure it’s bad for my circadian rhythms, but oh-so-good for my social little soul!
Wishing: the person alluded to above a speedy recovery.
Enjoying: my weekly coffee/catchup with some beautiful people I love.  I’m also enjoying the way our front door looks – we painted the white door navy and doesn’t it look great!


Waiting: why wait?  Just go out and do it!
Liking: the way my fat little tummy is shrinking as a result of my ketogenic diet (well, mostly anyway!) … and also the way this eating plan makes me feel in general.
Wondering: how we best ensure our daughter has an amazing life.
Loving: soooo many things.  Mainly my family, my friends and my home.
Pondering: processes.  I find it fascinating how once you embark on a process, it takes over, everyone does their little bit and amazing things get achieved.
Considering: whether or not I should take up pistol shooting, thus revoking my status as a Pistol Club widow?!
Watching: Facebook Lives with Deborah Murtagh of The Ketogenic Switch; so much passion.
Hoping: it’s a secret – I’ll tell ya later!
Marvelling: at just how cool having a daughter really is!

Needing: a money tree!
Wearing: frocks, frocks and more frocks!
Following: my dreams.
Noticing: that as much as I love pretty and expensive things, they’re becoming less and less important as I get older.  Instead experiences are important; time with family, coffee with friends – that sort of stuff.  Although don’t get me wrong … I still want a massive collection of Louis Vuitton and Christian Louboutin – I’m not fully evolved yet!
Knowing: that self-confidence is not the same as confidence, and although I am self-confident, sometimes that doesn’t translate into confidence, meaning I don’t always “sell myself” when I should.  Oh so convoluted!
Thinking: that I should be doing more of what I love.
Admiring: the many and varied talents of my family and friends.
Sorting:  ways to turn my dreams into plans.

Buying: a new school uniform for our baby because she got into the school we wanted her to get into … whoop, whoop!
Getting: good vibes about new directions.
Bookmarking: ketogenic recipes.
Disliking: running a wee bit behind on some life goals.
Opening: my heart and mind.
Giggling: at three-way text messages with my daughter and my partner.
Feeling: anxious about one situation and excited about another.
Snacking: on two squares of 90% cocoa dark chocolate.  So lush.
Coveting: this BEAUTIFUL handbag.  The Louis Vuitton Speedy in Monogram Empreinte.

Helping: by doing my small part to help good netballers become great netballers!
Hearing: when I should be listening!

What have you been up to?  Feel free to do your own version – tag me in if you do – I’d love to have a read!

Love and (probably) over-sharing …

Mumpty
