Reading… ‘Fully Functioning Human (Almost): Living in an Online/Offline World’ by the Irish YouTuber Melanie Murphy. I’m only a couple of chapters in but so far so good.

Watching… Suits. I’m on season 2 and it’s fun and easy-watching. And before you ask, I’m completely guilty of watching it to get a look at Meghan Markle before she gave it all up for Harry. I’m also excited that Grey’s Anatomy is back after it’s winter break and I’ve just watched Big Little Lies and loved loved loved it.

Listening to… Pink’s new album ‘Beautiful Trauma’. It’s great and I didn’t expect any less. I’ve loved all her albums.

Focussing on… My one little word for 2018 – LESS.

Pinning… quotes and ideas for my One Little Word for 2018.

Eating… A lot of Weight Watchers recipes so lots of chicken, eggs & fish.

Totally over… Winter! It’s long, miserable & grey.

Scrapping… My 2017 Project Life album. All of the photos are printed. I’m just working through my PL cards and embellishments now.

Planning… My 100 Day Project for 2018! Yes, I’m aware it doesn’t start until April but the idea came to me this week and now I’m excited about it.

Enjoying… making the most of weekends with less alcohol intake.

Looking forward to… a couple of days away in Donegal next month


Reading… The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes. I forgot how easy and fun her books are to read. I did not forget how funny she is. Her sense of humour is just brilliant.

Watching… Still hooked on Grey’s Anatomy. I’m almost at the end of season 9 now. What the hell am I going to do with my evenings when I catch up?

Listening to… TED Talks on my Podcast app while I drive. I’m learning all sorts of things in mostly 16-18 minute time slots.

Drinking… more water….finally!

Focussing on… getting back on track with my weight loss. I’ve been seriously slacking since December. Losing & gaining the same few pounds but I’m trying to be a bit more disciplined again.

Enjoying… some May sunshine in Ireland. Hopefully it lasts through the weekend!Although he hates the sun, my partner in crime, Chief, can’t help but sit out there with me when I’m reading.

Pinning… my own blog posts!

Considering… a trip to Bratislava in the summer.


Reading… 100 Pep Talks by Elise Blaha Cripe. I love everything she does and turning last year’s 100 Day Project into a book was a great idea. I’m falling asleep very quickly at night so I’m not getting through any books in a hurry.

Watching… Still hooked on Grey’s Anatomy. I’m on season 7 now, addicted and pretty sure I could perform emergency surgery if needed. I’m also catching up on the latest season of Homeland. I love it but it’s 1 of those shows I have to binge watch so I record the whole season & watch it over a couple of days. Just 2 episodes to go…

Listening to… Ed Sheeran’s new album, on repeat. Pretty sure I can sing it word for word at this stage.

Drinking… too much alcohol. It’s something about brighter weekends then make cider a great idea.

Making… lists using my new rainbow list sticky notes from ‘Get To Work Book’.

Enjoying… having 2 weeks off for Easter. I’m getting a big wardrobe clear-out done and it feels good!!

Taking… part in Elle Luna’s 100 Day Project. I have been doing something for my blog everyday for the past 11 days. So far so good.

Looking forward to… a long weekend in Wexford for the May bank holiday.

Pinning…lots of my old blog posts. I’m trying to share them on different platforms.

Considering…where we might go for a summer holiday. Any suggestions?

 

 

 

Currently-Feb17

Reading… ‘Why Not Me?’ by Mindy Kaling. I’m not far into it but so far it’s living up to her first book ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?’. The woman is a comical genius.

Watching… 2 completely different things. The first is Fortitude. I’m a little behind as I’m only a little more than half way through season 1. The second is the total opposite end of the spectrum with Grey’s Anatomy. I need something light and fun to balance out the seriousness of Fortitude.

Listening to… Elise Cripe’s podcast ‘Elise Gets Crafty’. It’s my favourite and I have a good few to catch up on so I’m listening to them on the drive to and from work.

Pinning… gel nail inspo and healthy(ish) food ideas.

Drinking… a lot more tea than I used to…

Scrapping… nothing and feeling guilty about it.

Enjoying… a slightly quieter February after a pretty chaotic January.

Cooking… a lot of easy dinners like turkey burgers and sweet potatoes

Focusing on… saving more and spending less. It’s not going too badly but I could still watch my spending a little more.

Taking… a mindfulness meditation class. I’m enjoying it but I don’t think 5 weeks is enough. where do I sign up for life?

Looking forward to… a trip to Budapest in early March!!
