Because I have a thousand things I want to write about, yet write about none. Because I seem to only post photos of my kids these days. Because I like lists, and have a spare five minutes. (Actually that's not true, I'm procrastinating.) And well, just because. Here is Pip's list...
Making: papier mache moneyboxes, and a small boy beanie, and a blanket
Cooking: dahls and soups because Autumn is finally here, hooray!
Drinking: lots of herbal tea
Wanting: new ugg boots, one of these bespoke cardies (fat chance!), and an end to the chaos and clutter. Also, a new computer; I am done sharing! (And ashamed that 'wanting' is my longest answer.)
Looking: at my gorgeous smallest one sleeping
Playing: whatever imaginary game the big boy dreams up
Wasting: time on my phone
Sewing: thinking about how I'll sew knitted squares together to finish the small boy's baby blanket
Wishing: we weren't broke
Enjoying: the cooler weather
Waiting: for a cup of tea
Liking: the coffee buzz
Wondering: if I will ever fit into my pre-baby jeans
Loving: wearing the small boy in the Hugabub
Hoping: for an adult conversation with K
Marvelling: that my small boy sleeps! I know it won't always be this easy.
Needing: to get our big boy into swimming lessons. And more exercise for me.
Smelling: the fish stock in the slow cooker
Wearing: my grandpa cardie and leggings (oh no, I've become one of those people that wear leggings because my jeans don't fit!!)
Following: some inspiring Instagrammers
Noticing: how much we have aged since having kids!!
Knowing: that time is evaporating before my eyes
Thinking: about what we'll do on our holidays in August, and hoping it involves our first ever family holiday (that is, a getaway that is just for us)
Feeling: a little overwhelmed by all the things, especially the parenting things
Bookmarking: kid play ideas
Opening: Lightroom to edit photos
Giggling: at my big boy's funny sayings.
