lately - Nov 19th

  • adventuring - into the past. The above was taken in Nov 1986, I am the tender age of 9 and taking part in a nationwide fundraising tap dance for Children In Need (the dance starts at about 5:55, no I'm not on the tv but I can still pretty much remember the whole dance!)
  • eating - burgers, bubble and squeak, pasta, cherry bakewells
  • drinking - honey & almond hot chocolate, tea, mocha, squash
  • reading - Sarah Rayner - One Moment, One Morning
  • watching -  Grand Designs, Friends series 10
  • listening to -,
  • thinking about - unexpected opportunities, serendipity
  • disliking - parcelforce (still), the tax man (still), cold feet
  • appreciating - great landlords, friends
  • loving - lie-ins, the power of youtube

lately - Nov 12th

  • adventuring - not so much

  • drinking - gingerbread latte, black forest hot chocolate, toffee nut latte (the coffee shops have got their Christmas flavours in!)
  • reading - David Gemmell - the third book of the trilogy in the right order (makes more sense that way!)

  • thinking about - more decluttering, my to-do list, craft projects
  • disliking - not doing things on the to-do list, parcelforce, the tax man
  • appreciating - the water proofness of my new coat, those who gave their lives for my freedom
  • loving - that the coffee shops have their Christmas flavours in (shallows I know!)
