Taking Stock: April 2015

April just seemed like a blur of stress and anxiety for me. It never rains, but it pours. Which could also describe the Sydney weather during April as well. But there’s always the positives, like, I got to wear my wellington boots and jump into puddles. And I guess that’s what April really was for me — searching for the positives amongst all the negatives. It wasn’t easy and I’m still struggling with it, but I think April has turned me into a slighty stronger person. Albeit, a rain-drenched one.

Making: nothing as I couldn’t decide on what to knit. Another scarf? Try a blanket again? Perhaps an animal hat? What about a cardigan? Gah…

Cooking: falafel salad (which is my new obsession) and soups. The weather is calling for warm lunches at work now.

Reading: “The Art of Belonging” with Hugh Mackay (almost finished).

Playing:Want To Want Me” by Jason Derulo, “Intoxicated” by Martin Solveig and GTA, “Sugar” by Maroon 5, and “I Could Be The One” by Avicii vs Nicki Romero.

Enjoying: an impromptu IKEA date-night with Super Boy.

Sorting: out my finances.

Wondering: if I’m “adult enough” to handle things.

Waiting: for my Dad’s angiogram, for my Dad to leave hospital, for my Dad’s follow-up with his heart specialist. Just a lot of waiting…

Deciding: to finally open up that savings account.

Wishing: I could spend some quality-time with Super Boy.

Liking: that The Parents have started to include more veggies in their diet.

Disliking: “simple” surgery that has left my Dad’s arm all bruised-looking and swollen.

Considering: changing my goals.

Watching: old episodes of ‘8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown’.

Marvelling: at just how much it can rain.

Wanting: to get rid of all the mess inside this house.

Needing: some time to myself. Maybe in my bed. And with my teddy bear.

Wearing: my favourite black coat I bought years ago from Topshop in London. Already. It’s not even Winter yet!

Following: The Design Chaser on Instagram for some interiors inspiration.

Noticing: the garden needs a lot of TLC right now.

Knowing: that I haven’t taken the time to meditate recently, and that I need to.

Thinking: about what to cook for work lunches.

Buying: an investment property. What have I done?

Getting: anxious about purchasing investment property.

Admiring: Super Boy and how solid he’s been during my moments of freaking out (there were a lot of those moments).

Hoping: next month will be better.

Loving: falafel. I need to learn how to make it!

Giggling: at episodes of ‘8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown’.

Planning: to buy a sofa for the upstairs living room at Hello HQ.

Feeling: anxious still but a lot better, more rested, and ready to face the world again.
