Making: a plan to try acupuncture. I can’t seem to do any amount of crochet or knitting at the mo. I’ve given up knitting the monthly dishcloths for now
Cooking: Oat & Pecan Cookies
Sipping: Twinings English Breakfast tea
Reading: Another Life by Jodie Chapman – this was the book I mentioned before. I got an Advanced Reader Copy, lucky me! It’s published tomorrow. The tale of Anna & Nick was really compelling, especially as it’s the author’s debut novel. I found it hard to put down
Waiting: to be able to travel freely
Looking: at all the anemones, grape hyacinth & pink tulips which have magically appeared in our garden
Listening: to Lo Vas A Olvidar by Billy Eilish & Rosalia on Spotify. It’s beautiful
Wishing: we could return to normal, but I think it’s a long way off
Enjoying: some sunnier days
Appreciating: being back at home. March has been very stressful, I was away for 10 days
Eating: lots of veggies this week
Liking: Schitt’s Creek I know, I am so late to the party!
Loving: Cinnamon buns with St Clements glaze. I won’t try anymore CB recipes – this enriched buttery dough is the bees knees
Buying: mixed peel & raisins to make Hot Cross Buns on Good Friday
Managing: fine, with some sleep now
Watching: the New Taskmaster series on C4
Hoping: I get to catch up with lots of friends from now on
Wearing: scruffs – a furry fleecy lined hood! Up, so have a cosy head. Not a great look but it’s comfy
Following: embroidery videos on Instagram. Addictive viewing, very calming too
Noticing: Spring has Sprung. Yippee!
Sorting: clothes, with rising temps forecast my Seasalt short sleeved tops will be coming out. It’s going to be 21 degrees, then back to 10, but wow that’s mini summer for us… The smell of thousands and thousands BBQ will be all over the land soon
Getting: Glitter Gel Pens for Easter instead of chocolate, maybe
Bookmarking: that TikTok Baked Feta Pasta recipe, why have I only just read about it? Have you tried it?
Coveting: new clothes
Hearing: Richard Marks singing his massive hit (sad) song
Thanks to Pip who provided the original inspiration for these Taking Stock posts years ago. I still like reading hers.
Tell me a few things about your March?
