Taking Stock: July 2014


Well, July sort of went by in a blip. I did many new-to-me-but-generally-very-mundane things like seeing a stand-up comedy show with a work colleague (or just getting out of the house in general) and did one-too-many shopping trips to IKEA. Damn it, IKEA, I was meant to stay away from you. I don’t have many photos this month, so you’ll just have to trust that I’ve been a very busy bee.

Making: floating shelves. Well, more ‘installing’ than ‘making’, but I’m still chuffed with the results nonetheless.

Cooking: Slow-cooked Lamb Shanks with Mashed Potato and Green Beans.

Drinking: coffee, green tea and sparkling water (it still counts as water, right?).

Reading: nothing. Oops.

Wanting: motivation to start exercising.

Looking: for ways to decorate the house.

Playing: ‘I Got U’ by Duke Dumont feat. Jax Jones, ‘We Are Done’ by The Madden Brothers, ‘Wasted’ by TiΓ«sto feat. Matthew Koma, and ‘Nobody to Love’ by Sigma.

Deciding: that I need to let him go.

Wishing: I didn’t have to.

Enjoying: getting out of the house and doing things.

Waiting: for warmer weather so that I can wear denim shorts and pretty dresses without tights.

Liking: sunny Winter days.

Wondering: if I’ll ever find another man like him…

Loving: that The Parents finally relented and allowed me to drill holes into the wall and decorate a small part of the house.

Pondering: the next step in my life.

Considering: going on a second-hand shop trail around Sydney.

Watching: the final of MasterChef Australia.

Hoping: I manage to finish a few more small projects around the home before my Little Sister returns from Japan.

Marvelling: at how fast time seems to fly by.

Needing: to clean my room.

Smelling: coffee.

Wearing: my favourite black suede ankle boots that go ‘clop clop’ when I walk.

Following: my own advice to get out of the house and do more.

Noticing: the garden looking quite sad and in need of some TLC.

Knowing: I can get things done if I set my mind to it.

Thinking: about the next home make-over project.

Admiring: minimalist interior design.

Sorting: through all the junk in my bedroom.

Buying: way too much from IKEA and ASOS.

Saving: very little this month.

Getting: too excited about being able to decorate a small part of the house.

Disliking: this Winter that feels colder than before.

Opening: packages from IKEA and ASOS like a kid on Christmas morning.

Giggling: with work colleagues over random things.

Feeling: glad, sad and confused.
