A quick catch up today as it’s a public holiday here in Melbourne (Cup day) and also officially the first day of NaNoWriMo. I have no idea if I’m going to be able to keep up with blogging or if I’m even going to feel like writing after attempting to write 1500 words everyday so if things get a little quiet around here you know why!
But before I jump head first into the month long writing challenge I thought it was a good time to stop and take stock with Pip’s Taking Stock list. Here we go:
Making: An indoor herb garden. It’s on the to do list for this week! I’ve got herbs, just need to buy the pots.
Cooking: Nothing much exciting lately, I’ve been in a bit of a slump but that’s gotta change! Anyone got any great simple recipes to share?
Drinking: Freshly squeezed orange juice with my breakfast.
Wanting: My anxiety to fuck off.
Looking: Forward to summer and Christmas holidays.
Wishing: My anxiety would fuck off. (Noticing a theme here?)
Enjoying: Daylight savings.
Waiting: For our great bunch of friends to come over and celebrate Melbourne Cup day with us today.
Wondering: How our little man will go at school next year. I hope he loves it!
Loving: My friends. I’ve called on two in particular in recent times, they get my anxiety and have really been there for me. Thank you. You know who you are.
Pondering: How I’m actually going to manage to write a 50,000 word novel in a month.
Listening: To Smiling Mind meditations at bed time.
Buying: Christmas presents. I started last week, determined to get it all done early this year!
Cringing: At the recent online drama. between two bloggers That’s all I have to say about that.
Needing: A nap…always.
Wearing: My PJ’s
Knowing: It will be ok.
Thinking: too much. It’s a problem of mine.
Getting: Sick of hearing about the American election. Is it over yet?!
Bookmarking: House floor plans. We’re dreaming of a new house again!
Disliking: Spam, auto bots and the follow then unfollow trend on Instagram. Annoying much!
Giggling: At our lil mans dance moves. Crack up!
Celebrating: Melbourne Cup day! And lots of little ones birthdays this month.
Embracing: The next three months at home with my boy before I go back to work next year!
For those of you that read my post last week and are wondering what the results of my biopsy were, at this stage, it’s still a bit unclear. Pathology results came back as not being skin cancer however the specialist was not happy with some parts of the results and still wants to remove the lesion. I’m currently seeking a second opinion. Whilst I know it’s better to be safe than sorry with these things I have also unfortunately had bad experiences in the past where I’ve undergone procedures that just weren’t necessary, so I’ve learnt now to question things. I won’t be cutting anything off my face unless I need to and will also be asking for a referral to a plastic surgeon if that is necessary. Thank you to everyone who commented, called or sent me a message after my post, I really really appreciate it.
And that’s it from me for now. What’s new with you lately?
’til next time
