What am I currently up to? Have a look.

Reading...The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood. I've been meaning to read this book for years, and I picked it up second hand a few years ago. I'm not very far in, but it makes the commute a little bit easier.

Watching...The Queen's Jubilee Celebrations. All. Weekend. Long. And actually? I've really enjoyed it. I'm no royalist (nor am I married to one...) but 60 years is a bloody long time. I work in the center of London, and sometimes I have to just stop and appreciate all the history around me. Watching the parades, flotillas, etc, has had the same effect on me...I just need to stop and appreciate all the history.

Anticipating...summer weather. I thought you were here to stay, but it seems I was wrong! I can't wait to see you again sun!

Making...a Hawaiian shirt for my newphew. The pattern is all cut and marked, and now I need to get over my fear of the new and just SEW IT! It's super cute, and I will post a picture when it's finished.

Listening to...the sound of rain. Lots of rain. Did I mention I live in England? Hello rain!

Eating...vegetarian English fry up! Alicia was down for the weekend, and we had yummy poached eggs, vegetarian sausages, baked beans and toast for lunch as a send off for her long journey home. We always have delicious food when Leashie's down to visit and this was no exception!

Giving thanks for...my awesome family, both the one I was born into and the one I married into.  Leaving after college was me running over my perceived overbearing-ness of my family, and now I just miss them like crazy. But I also love family I've gained over here, especially my two adorable little nephews.

Staying fit with...my new jump rope! I bought one yesterday and I can't wait to get started! We had a jump roping session yesterday, and I don't think I've ever seen anything more amusing than my husband jump roping.

Wishing...I was closer to friends and family. Every day. :(


  1. I've felt very nostalgic for England lately. I'm glad to hear you were enjoying the celebrations (I watched a bit on BBC online.) <3

  2. I wish you were closer too! Miss you Kira!
