Loving: Sunshine!!! All the rain we've been having lately was doing my head in. Rainy days used to be appealing when I could lay in bed under the doona and read a book... Now with a toddler that goes stir crazy at the first sighting of a grey cloud, rainy days are my worst nightmare. I'm happy to be back to park days (especially now that I'm feeling better - flu seasons sucks!) and leisurely strolls in the sunshine. Oh and the temperatures - loving that it's almost Christmas and I can walk outside in jeans and a cardi without freezing :-)

Reading: I just finished 1906 by James Dalessandro, about the earthquake & subsequent fires in San Francisco. It wasn't a bad read, I wouldn't rave about it though. Now I can't decide what to read next... Suggestions?

Watching: We just finished the Amazing Race on Sunday night. Gotta love it when the underdogs win :-) Otherwise, I actually haven't been watching anything else. With Mitch being away, I decided to wait til he was home to watch our favourite shows together because I know I won't be bothered to watch them twice!

Listening to: The sound of my own voice (ugh). We've had a lot of repetitions of the wheels on the bus in this house the last week... It seems to calm a cranky boy!

Creating: I just finished off another custom order, a cuddly little polar bear. Now I'm planning on making up some similar softies to what I've just completed recently to re-stock the shop. Then the next thing on my creating list is Christmas stockings!

Thinking about: Blog stuff. I am a little embarrassed to admit that after almost three years of blogging, I only discovered this week that replying to comments directly on my blog doesn't actually notify the commenter... Woops! And here I was thinking that it was sending out a lovely little email each time. I've now figured out that I can directly reply via email - which in turn means I'm discovering the frustration of the no-reply blogger profiles! I love replying to each and every comment and so if you don't get a reply, please check your blogger profile and make sure it has a reply email address set :-)

Making me happy: Having Mitch home again. He was in Florida earlier this week for work and although it was only three nights this trip, it still dragged on. It's amazing how long the days are when you know the husband isn't going to be walking in the door, thus ending cranky hour...

Looking forward to: Christmas... Bling bling bling! Ok, so I know what my present is but I'm totally fine with that because I designed it. We had agreed a few years ago that the birth of our first child would be a special time to get my eternity ring... Well that child is almost one and a half years old and still no ring! Last week we finally got organised and *fingers crossed* it should be made by Christmas!

Happy Friday!


  1. The no reply blogger thing is a biggie for me too! It was a revelation when I realized it ;)

  2. I'm right there with you on the "no-reply". It's especially a bummer when you get a really heartfelt comment and you can't respond back to it. Sometimes I'll just go to their blog and leave them a comment and mention the "no-reply", because I didn't know for the longest time either!


Thanks for reading, your comments make my day :-)
