Hello Lovelies!

You know I love this linky, right?  It belongs to the, frankly marvellous Lindsey from Ot and Et and the lovely Randalin at Harvesting Kale.  Randalin is about to have a gorgeous new little baby so needs a break to concentrate on Mummying.  These kind and generous ladies have agreed to let me join in with a spot of Currently-sitting!  I am very pleased to say that I will be co-hosting for a short while together with the delightful Colleen over at The Mommy Panda and I will be trying really very jolly hard not to mess up this beautiful game up even a bit.  Serious guys, thanks so much, I can't wait!!

This week's themes are: Reading, Loving, Cooking, Avoiding, Laughing...

So in time honoured tradition I'd like to let you know what I have been Currently up to...

I really miss reading, I used to do it so much more before I had children. I used to love spending an afternoon laid on my bed reading a brilliant book until my arms went numb. Somehow it was just what had to give when I had the babies. I'm an all or nothing reader, I throw myself into a book and do pretty much nothing else until it's finished. Can't do that with mini humans wreaking havoc in the background. Lately the only thing I seem to find myself really properly reading are Biscuit's school books! 

I've been loving spending unexpected extra time with my darlings. Somehow, when you get a day together that you weren't expecting it makes it twice as special. My crazy little family.  I've also been loving eating chilli lately, mouth meltingly hot, burn your lips chilli, it could be because I'm strange...I can't get enough!

We've been cooking up a bit of a storm lately, a pretty flippin' yummy roast beef on Sunday. Some stonkingly good cherry flapjack and a lemon and raspberry cake to name but a few. I think my love of cooking, in part, comes from living in a village with no shop, if you're peckish, you might as well whip it up, it takes half the time a trip to the supermarket takes!

It's fair to say I have been avoiding the pile of ironing that's lurking in my utility room, ugh. I've also been avoiding buying a new kitchen bin. We need one desperately, the lid loudly plops off ours every five minutes, but I can't face spending actual hard earned cash on a bloomin' bin. There is nothing duller. No wonder I've been avoiding that one, eh?

My day at work yesterday was so manic I reached the point of hysteria and ended up laughing.  Seriously, there was nothing else I could do without going completely insane.  I also made my delightful colleagues jump by yelling triumphantly when I finally cleared my inbox.  Thankfully they were laughing too, rather than gleefully strangling me!

I've also got to mention Wiggles' new trick is to press her nose and shout "Beep!" Then burst out laughing, which in turn makes everyone else laugh. I'm not entirely sure where she gets it from, but I completely love it! Never fails to make me smile like a loon. 

Next week: Owning, Wearing, Thinking, Drinking, Dancing...

So come on, if you haven't before, why not give it a go!  Join in?

  1. It sounds like we have the same approach to reading! Like you, I'm an all or nothing reader, and so haven't read much since having Kale. I'm hoping to squeeze in a book or two since my maternity leave has started, but babe has yet to arrive (and hopefully won't for another couple weeks!).

    I'm pretty excited that you iron. Every time I mention that I have a heap of ironing to do, people look at me really strangely and say "you iron!?!?" I didn't realize it was so passe!

    1. I get that a lot too! When did ironing go out of fashion?!! I am so uncool!!

  2. Ironing is super passe! ;) Chili and roast beef, on the other hand, those are super now! So excited to have wonderful you as a co-host. Muah! xoxoxoxoxo

  3. The only time I iron is when I have a special occasion. Otherwise, I spray some water on the garment, toss it into the dryer, and cross my fingers.

    1. Oooh, I might just have to give that a try!!

  4. First off I just have to say, I'm in love at 1st sight! I have been doing a little poking around your pages, and I just want to pack myself up and send me over to you. I could just pinch your cheeks you are just so darn cute.

    My husband is in the Coast Guard and he needs his uniforms ironed, so guess who gets to do that job... I'm the same way with reading.

    1. Ahhhh, Tiffany, thank you so much!!! You are most welcome :) xx


Thank you for stopping by! I love reading your lovely comments x

If you're a rotten stinking spambot; shoooooo! Away with you!!
