It’s not often I take a moment and really think about where I am, but after doing this fun little exercise, I’m a convert. It’s a little bit of much-needed reality check, and a little bit of fun.
It’s a great idea and thanks to Pip and her blog (meet me at Mikes), I’ve got a list to go by.
Here’s what’s in my head right now:
Making : Tiny skirts for my tiny 2-year-old. Cooking : Creamy chicken and mushroom pasta
Drinking : Water wishing it was champagne
Reading: A book I started 2 years ago and have forgotten what it’s called.
Wanting: A house with a backyard… so bad
Looking: at my daughter’s naked dolls strewn all over the living room
Playing: with my daughter
Deciding: what I want to blog about
Wishing: I had a fairy god-mother
Enjoying: being a mummy
Waiting: for the day that she’s not stuck to me like glue so I can do some work
Liking: that the winter days in Sydney are getting warmer
Wondering: when the dryer is going to finish doing its job
Loving: my cheap and cheerful homeware buys from Kmart
Pondering: whether to get more indoor plants
Considering: getting more indoor plants
Watching: The bachelor
Hoping: there’s a fun movie on next
Marvelling: at my daughter’s cleverness.
Needing: a holiday
Smelling: washing liquid from the laundry
Following: some good advice on how to get writing
Noticing: how many excuses I make to get out of it
Knowing: that tomorrow is another day
Thinking: I might take my daughter to the park to feed the ducks
Admiring: Other working mums who seem to have their heads screwed on
Sorting: through receipts for tax
Buying: a shirt-dress from Asos
Getting: excited for summer
Bookmarking: loads of articles on how to stop 2-year-old tantrums
Disliking: that Australia is so stupidly behind on legalizing gay marriage
Feeling: all gooey because my daughter told me I was beautiful tonight
Below is blank list for you to copy and paste if you feel like taking stock of your own life:)
Hope you enjoy doing this !
PS. I would love you to come and join my Facebook family for a bit more of Starring Maya fun. Or if you're more of an Instagram person then right this way 🙂 See you around! xxx Shereen
