Each month I’m going to post some of the things I’m doing, viewing, seeing, being etc. Let me know if your doing any of it too.

Reading

After reading the most beautiful book ever last month (Bloom by Kelle Hampton, she writes an amazing blog too check her out here), I needed something that wasn’t a thinking book. So yes, I’ve started 50 Shades of Grey. Mummy porn, well… its… yeah. Dont think I’m gonna comment on this one.

Veiwing

New (to me) MTV show Awkward. It has Teenagers, a love triangle and classic high school drama, I’m so addicted. I managed to watch the whole first season in record time, and  I am up to the current episodes airing in the US. I am so incredibly addicted to it,o the point where I was utterly depressed when I realized there was no more to watch (but new episodes are released weekly so I can live with that).

Suckered back into to watching Neighbors. The Jade-Kyle-Kate storyline has got me a little hooked, but only because Kyle is hot. Tragic -heeeelllllllll yes!

Doing

Still with the crazy felt craft. Possibly something to do with the 35 odd pieces of felt I brought. I’m pretty sure I black out when I go into spotlight, resulting in a larger than normal purchase of random pretty things.

Planning

Preparing myself for travel with a 7 month old. Only 2 months away and soooooooo freaking exciting/nerve racking/terrifying/boundary challenging. I’m making lists, checking weather, preparing wardrobes, reading up on airline guidelines and over thinking just about every aspect. But that’s just what I do, I would do the same thing if I was going away by myself too :).

Listening

Music and I have had a somewhat rocky relationship over the past few months. My dad was my link to music and when he past away I couldn’t listen to anything. Recently I have been able to listen to the radio again. Its still hard, mostly because when ever there was a new song or artist I liked I would tell dad straight away. Anyhoo… a few song on repeat in my head are:

Feel the Love – Rudimental (Ft John Newman)

Earthquake – Labrinth (Ft Tinie Tempah)

Primadonna – Marina and the Diamonds

Being

Healthy. Well trying to anyway. We start week 7 of our 12 week body transformation challenge tomorrow. Officially half way. I am mentally planning what glorious foods I will crazy binge on at the end of these three months. They mostly consist of cake and chocolate (the exact reason I started the 12wbt in the first place). Here hoping it doesn’t get to that.

Happy. Being, feeling, acting, absorbing and oozing it. Its my mental head set this month. I sometimes feel like I’m getting sucked back into that black hole of ‘I miss my dad’. If I take a deep breath and a step back, I can see so much fabulous stuff around me. A beautiful friend of mine is getting married up in Broome tomorrow (sending so much love that way), one of my best friends and a role model for mums everywhere is up the spud with number 2 (my gosh I am so crazy excited about that) and my brother and his gorgeous fiance are coming to visit next weekend. All the more reason to smile.

I will be requiring ideas on all the above topics to keep me entertained. Please feel free to recommend.

Much love peeps xx
