taking stock

I thought I'd give one of Pip's Taking Stock lists a go today.  Here it is!

Making : Final tweaks to an exciting new gocco design and secret crocheted baby goods
Cooking :  My mum's rice salad and hard-boiled eggs
Drinking :  Fizzy things
Reading:  The Luminaries and my own blog
Wanting:  A spare day to do my gocco printing
Looking:  Pale and in need of a shower
Playing:  Matching pairs with Dulcie (not yet actually, but it's guaranteed to happen soon)
Deciding:   What to wear to a wedding (so I don't have to decide anything more important)
Wishing:  For the sort of happiness it seems like everyone else is getting
Enjoying:  Dulcie's company - big time!
Waiting:  In queues - a rare day in the city centre shops today
Liking:  That some of our plants are growing, albeit slowly
Wondering:  How to make things better for us
Loving:  Dulcie - big time!
Pondering:  My health
Considering:  Phoning my consultant
Watching:  Boj (repeatedly) and Mad Men - gone back to series one
Hoping:  I can hold it together
Marvelling:  At Dulcie's brain and speech
Needing:  A new heart?  £30,000 and someone to give half of that to.  A bit of bravery.
Smelling:  Cats (have two on my knee as I type)
Wearing: Yesterday's clothes (but clean pants and socks)
Following:  The routes of public transport
Noticing:  Pregnant people everywhere
Knowing:  That this list is turning out more depressing than I'd hoped
Thinking:  *#@*$*#*!!!
Feeling:  Ill and unhappy
Admiring:  Don Draper - phwoargh!
Sorting:  Wedding outfits for Dulcie and I
Buying:  Cardigans and children's underwear - planning to ditch nappies soon!
Getting:  Hungrier
Bookmarking:  Very near the beginning of The Luminaries
Disliking:  My situation
Opening:  The windows!
Giggling:  Not  much today
Feeling: De ja vu (didn't I already answer this?)
Snacking:  Healthily
Coveting:  Babies
Wishing:  I had a less depressing answer for this. Oh, wait!  Wishing Mad Men hadn't moved to Sky so we wouldn't have to wait for the DVDs to catch up.
Helping:  Dulcie on and off escalators
Hearing:  An unknown baby crying outside, Dulcie's drum machine


  1. These are a good thing to do now and then. Honest!

    1. Yes, I will do it again, but not on a day I feel like I'm about to die, perhaps!
