Currently…Birthday Edition

Currently...

Each Monday I start with a sum up of what’s currently happening around these parts – especially when some weeks seem to fly by quicker than others!

Watching:
Bones – While we ate dinner at Mum’s on Saturday we caught up on the TV recorded on her Sky Box. She had the latest episode of Bones on there so we watched it.
NCIS: Los Angeles – We also watched this – we both really like NCIS.
Ice Road Truckers – Dad was watching this during the day while we were in and out of the house. Various episodes were on including one where they were rushing to get off the ice before it broke up at the end of Winter.

Reading:
In the last two weeks or so I’ve ended up with three new books in my collection. Lost by Elle Field, All I Know Now by Carrie Fletcher and Kids Don’t Come with A Manual by Carole and Nadim Saad. I started on the Kid’s Don’t Come with a Manual book when it arrived but so far I’d found it a bit wordy – maybe it’ll just take some getting into. In the mean time I’ve read nearly three quarters of Lost by Elle Field and I’m loving it. Again if you love the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella I’m sure you will love it – give it a go. All I Know Now is on my Kindle as I had preordered it but for now will be sat unread while I finish the other two.

Wondering:
Wondering if I can complete any more of my pre-30 items in the next few weeks – I have 52 weeks now until I turn 30 – come on I should be able to do some of them even if the others aren’t possible.

Making:
I’ve cleared a bunch of the squares for the current blanket that we’re working on. I’m down to single figure numbers of squares instead of the 15+ I was on before.

Eating:
Well clearly last week worked because I stood on the scales to a 1.5lb lost and got my 2.5 stone (35lbs) award. This week has so far gone down the toilet. With my birthday celebrations sort of starting on Thursday with dinner at The Higgins Pantry followed by cake and Chinese Takeaway on Saturday, I really had to tip the scales in the right direction quickly. I had made sure that I had on plan breakfast on Saturday and Our Sidekick obliged and even brought me breakfast in bed which was really sweet (especially as he’d made notes so he got it right and on plan for me). On Saturday Chris surprised me with tickets to the Sherlocked Convention in London, I made sure that I packed Slimming World friendly cereal bars so I had snacks even if we bought “junky” snacks for Chris while we’re out. 

Working On:
A couple of guest posts all over the place. Some are still at inspiration stage though so need to work that one out. I’m helping a couple of newish/restarting bloggers to get themselves sorted out which is really exciting. Also getting May to run a little smoother than April (or the best I can when I’m working at My Mums house because of our internet being out still).
