I’ve rescheduled our drinks to Sunday afternoons. I hope that still suits you… I like Sunday afternoons. They feel like both the end of one week and the beginning of another.
Today we’re having a lovely cold Creature Comforts Reclaimed Rye. Good drinking. Here’s what I’ll be telling you:
I’m loving: hanging out by our pool. I take my towel and a drink up there in the mornings and stay a couple of hours. It’s like being at a resort only I have to do my own pool cleaning and get my own drinks and… it’s not really like a resort at all, but I’ll take what I can get. At least I always get a sun lounger.
I’m enjoying: Max is trialling playing Rugby and I love the idea of him being part of a team. He’s interested, but not yet sold. When people ask me what sports Max is into (because he looks like he is into many), I say, “He’s very kind.”
I’m watching: MKR. I watch it with the girls and we love it. There are a lot of life lessons about playing fair and getting along with others to teach as we go along.
I’m eating: Roast veggie salad for lunch. I cook up a big batch of roast veggies (sweet potato, carrots, zucchini) and a jar of quinoa and keep them in the fridge. I add them to rocket or other leaves, fresh onion, bit of cheese and a soy and sesame dressing. So good and so good for me. The quinoa keeps me full for ages.
I’m reading: A Cathy Kelly book. They all tend to blend into one – three bonny Orish lasses doing just fine thank you very much until… – but they are a great escape (see ‘enjoying the pool’ above).
I’m making: blog posts! I was so neglectful but now I’m paying more attention.
I’m discovering: that ‘doing nothing’ isn’t a waste of time.
I’m wondering: whether I’ve chosen the right white paint (again). I went with ½ Berkshire White. Fingers crossed.
I’m listening: to Bruce. Wish I could have gone to his concerts this time around, but alas, it was not to be. The beer is for you, Bruce.
I’m planning: My series about planning, of course!
Hope you’ve had a good week! Any wins to share?
