Taking Stock in September 

Making : Nigella’s Sweet & Salty Bars (from her Kitchen bookto take to the last Lincolnshire BBQ of the year, by request. It was devoured


Cooking : Apple cake

Drinking : Earl grey tea. I tried it with lemon and then went back to my usual black

Reading: A new book! I read the first chapter, then woke at 01:00 with the light still on. I *think* it’s a good’un

Trawling: Blogs. Still massively behind reading my faves after the no broadband debarcle 

Wanting: Another bracing walk like yesterday’s, from Mablethorpe to Sutton on Sea

Looking: Tired, after the BBQ last night 

Deciding: Lights off by 10:30pm tonight 

Wishing: Summer hadn’t whizzed by in 5 mins this year. It’s September already?!

Enjoying: Snuggling in my Tilted Granny Squares blanket 

Waiting: For Graham Norton and Have I Got News for You to come back on TV 

Liking: Watching the leaves change colour 

Wondering: Which shop to buy new jeans?

Loving: Autumn unfolding at Waterperry Gardens


Pondering: Unravelling a cowl I’ve never worn

Listening: To a ticking clock 

Considering: Pausing to put the kettle on 

Buying: Belly pork for dinner 

Watching: Moana, the accents swing from sort of English to sort of Scottish to sort of Antipodean in places


Hoping: For a new cooker soon. With numbers on the dials!

Marvelling: At time speeding

Cringing: At my panda eyes and red cheeks (lunchtime wine and heating on.) 

Needing: That tea! 

Questioning: What’s for dinner this week? What shall I make at Sewing Club?

Smelling: My blanket 

Wearing: My favourite red cardie 

Noticing: The traffic is much quieter on Sundays

Knowing: It will feel more like home soon

Trouble-shooting: Needle sizes, cable lengths, how to edge a blanket 

Thinking: Of writing a series of porridge related posts

Admiring: Union Jack boot toppers I saw on Thursday on wellies in the pub. Very clean ones! Paired with a body warmer and a Joules top…

Getting: Chatty with the wearer of this hoodie. She’s met the great lady

Bookmarking: A few blog posts for inspiration 

Opening: A bag of porridge oats mwahaha

Closing: Doors to keep the heat in

Feeling: Lazy and warm 

Dreaming: Of mice in hoodies, wearing sunglasses (really, I did)

Hearing: The zoom of a recliner

Celebrating: Unpacking all the boxes 

Pretending: They’ve all been unpacked 

Embracing: Soups, stewed apples and other cozy foods

It’s been ages since I wrote a Taking Stock post, and coming across Pip’s made me remember how I used to love reading them. If you want to write your own, here’s the list courtesy of the rather fab Pip. If you do, how about leaving a link in the comments below, so we can see what you’re up to as well?
