What's happening right about now...

You can blame this post on Sonia.. and she blames it on Nikki but really there is no blame as  that sounds negative and this is inspired. An insight of sorts.. so here is what is happening in my life right now.. 20 questions..

Making: Lists - school, work , life, dreams and plans.. lists for everything.. 

Cooking: All sorts of recipes in my Thermomix. Marcus and I had been thinking about buying one for about 3 years so the interest free option split over a year offered before Christmas had us give in as a gift to each other..

Drinking: Coffee of a morning, Water for the rest of the day and Tonic Water at night... totally addicted to all 3..

Reading: The Collective, I have so little time for reading but when it inspires and gives me business insight I cannot resist

Wanting: Some time out.. fat chance

Looking: Forward to the year. Clarity is a gift and I am feeling full of it.

Playing: At Superwoman, solo parenting quite a bit with work busier than ever and trying to still find time for me, my exercise and life is always like playing  a game of snakes and ladders

Deciding: Whether to get a cleaner this year.. as H has gone to school and we will have extra money each month due to no longer paying childcare fees I am thinking I can afford to re invest a little of that into a cleaner each fortnight?..

Wishing: The year away as we have an amazing holiday planned for Crimbo 2014.

Enjoying: Summer. Weekends by the pool and walking to school in the sunshine just keeps me smiling

Waiting: for my basket to arrive so we can have a little tree inside 

Liking: My new rug in my office it is sooo soft under foot and I actually sit on the floor to do stuff just because it is comfy!

Wondering: If all of the projects I have planned for the year will see the light or if some will be pushed to 2015

Loving: My new Flannel pants and Tomato Salad Lunches

Pondering: If one of my besties will ever realise I feel like she has totally abandoned me.

Considering: When to launch our DTLL App, we have been ready since Christmas but now we are busy with other things..

Watching: Helix, Banshee, True Blood, Grand Designs, The Block and Made in Essex

Hoping: My plan to host dinner parties this year and see more of my girls will happen..

Marvelling: At how my kids are forming this beautiful bond being at school together at last

Needing: Sleep

Smelling: Vanilla, Lime, Jasmine and Coconut.. these are the smells I have around my house..

Wearing: 7am -11am Lululemon, 11am-7pm find me a Maxi Dress or I am back in my Lulu's (clean ones I would add) 7pm-7am I get my Peter Alexanders on..

Following: Some amazing peeps over on Insta I love that place

Noticing: That slowing down and taking time with the kids really means more to me than answering all my emails within 5 mins of them arriving in my inbox

Knowing: That 2014 is going to be even better than 2013

Thinking: The people I surround myself with this year will be the ones for life, no idea why but my tribe is growing smaller but so much stronger

Feeling: Positive and Strong

Admiring: The ones who have taken the risks and come through the other side..

Sorting: My calendar.. 

Buying: This I just love the colour 

Getting: Ready to present and the Gift Fair this weekend.. I sorta don't present, I prefer to chat 

Bookmarking: New stores, possible stores.. I spend my life bookmarking

Disliking: My parents being back in the UK, really missing them

Opening: Up the drawer with my SLR in it, I am desperate to get back on it. The iPhone is too easy and boring

Giggling: At my evening routine whilst  teaching Harrington to get through the night without nappies.. he is so different to Kitty he wakes up completely and chats to you.. she was like a zombie sack of potatoes

Will you play along? cut n paste the above, delete my answers as you write your own or just pick your faves and answer in comments.. either way come back and tell me so I can get nosey on you too :)


  1. Beautiful and thoughtful. Im sure your friend has not abandoned you. Especially if she a good friend. Hopefully just 'caught up'. Fingers crossed. This profile thingy is certainly doing the rounds. I do it in my head all the time when I read others. Amazing how similar some of my responses are at certain times when I read others. This is in my blogging ideas list for sure.

  2. Love this, will have to give it a go. I love a bit of The Only Way is Essex too x

  3. Ok you have officially inspired me - I started a post for this last month and never finished. I love this - it reminds me yet again how similar we are in the things that are important to us and the things we love. And *fist pump* to the tribe hun - quality over quantity. xx

  4. You're a doll. Even if you have joined the Thermomix cult. x


Leave me a love note why don't you.. it makes me feel oh so spesh ...
