Taking stock in January 2016

One month into the new year and here’s my first taking stock post – a change from my usual Saturday links. How are you finding 2016?


Making : two great tops that I really love.

Cooking : grain-free bread that is great with avocado. Unfortunately there is now an avocado shortage.

Drinking : Bitter lemon cordial with mineral water.

Reading: F. Scott Fitzgerald and tales of life on the French Riviera in the 20s.

Wanting: resolution

Looking: at houses on the internet.

Playing: Rudimental on Pandora. I know, I’m so 2015..

I found this fabulous list over at The Plumbette recently (and I think I saw one on Woogs World too) and really loved it. I figured that Christmas Eve was an appropriate time to post something like this and plan on doing it regularly in 2016.

Making : an effort to get this new blog venture up and running.

Cooking : lots of Christmas treats including ridiculous amounts of caramel popcorn that I now eat for breakfast. #unneccessary

Drinking : more Diet Coke than is good for me along with lots of lovely Christmas bubbles.
