Reading: I'm still re-reading 'Valley Of The Dolls', which I am slowly making a dint in. My focus has been on a logo design and illustrations this month. I am one of those people that cannot start a new book without finishing the book I currently have a book mark in. And I am really keen to read 'The Happiness Project' next, so I need to get a wriggle on with VOTD.
Watching: I wrote a post earlier in the week about my top 5 tv shows I'm currently watching.
Listening to: Miley's new record, 'bangerz'. I didn't really have the highest of hopes for this one, but I was pleasantly surprised by how fun the songs are. I don't really buy into all of the hype surrounding her at the moment, or feel as though she is being that outrageous with her new look. I just like her cheesy, catchy songs & I am always interested in a Britney collaboration.
Thinking about: Christmas. It really isn't that far away, and that blows my mind. Last Christmas Romy was in my belly and we were patiently waiting to find out whether we were having a boy or a girl the following day. And I remember thinking about what things would be like once Romy arrived, and just how different things actually are in the best possible way. I am really excited for Romy's first Christmas, it is just a shame that Luke has to work on Christmas day. What kind of person makes you work on Christmas you ask? A jerk, thats who!
Working on: a couple of illustrative presents for some of my favourite people. While I was waiting on a email last week I started to draw a friends baby as a surprise present in the mail to go along with a couple of handmade head ties and got into a creative flow and wrote a list of illustrations I wanted to get done by Christmas. I have drawn a couple of commissioned illustrations this year, but haven't sat down with my own ideas for a while. So this wave of inspiration and motivation has come at the right time!
Loving: Goodnight Little Spoon's mum style. Bianca is such a lovely lady, our paths crossed a few times a couple of years ago through a mutual friend when we both lived in Newcastle. I was so delighted to come across her blog when I first started blogging, and it is especially nice to read about her adventures with her super cute little family. She is definitely on my hot mum watch list!
Anticipating: my sister getting home from her work trip to New Zealand this weekend. Some funny things have happened while she has been away and I can't wait to tell her about a conversation I had with our grandmother this week in particular!
