The past week has been quite the hectic one but I think I’ll be able to fit in some quiet time today, which is just what I need. Phewph! I’ve had a stressful time at uni of late – in terms of both my thesis and teaching – and whilst it seems to be petering out for a couple of weeks, I know it will be back in full swing in about a month’s time and won’t let up until November. But hopefully I can be productive during that time so it’s not a bad type of busy, it’s the “Ooh it’s 11am and look how much I’ve already achieved” type of busy. The feel-good kind of busy.
I’ve also been busy behind the scenes of the blog, as you may be able to tell! I’ve switched from Blogger to WordPress.org! Well, I say I did it but really it was all down to Mr. birdandfox. What a handy man! The look is very similar to before, with a few small changes here and there (and some still to be made). Let me know what you think in the comments!
Anyway, the switch took a little longer than I expected and we hit some roadblocks, hence this mini Taking Stock post being a tad belated for the month of May. Better late than never though, right?
Reading: “All The Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr because of the lovely Laura from the Happy Pantry blog.
Wondering: what’s the best way to display these polaroids. Scrapbook?
Smelling: freshly baked tea cake. Nothing quite like it!
Deciding: which succulents to keep in this new lantern that’s going to act as a terrarium. Because yes, I DO need another one, if you must know.
Loving: the gorgeous dress and cosy jumper I grabbed for a total of $8 at the Camberwell Market last weekend – score!
How was your May? What are you looking forward to in the month of June?
These Taking Stock posts are based on an idea by the wonderful Pip Lincolne over at the Meet Me At Mike’s blog. Head here to check out her Taking Stock posts and to find a blank copy of the full list.2
