Taking Stock - September

It's been a crazy September with a week in China, that was fabulous - anyone thinking about it, definitely make that happen! Then back to the tax and other business demands, then school concerts and doctors and all the other life obligations...and now it's school holidays. So I will be gone again for a few weeks but still on Instagram so you can see what adventures are afoot here.

Making : school holiday plans - trying to lure the teen out with us...

Sipping : cocktails - something about spring says it's time for festive drinks.

Reading:Fleishman is in trouble. I didn't like it but it's getting rave reviews from friends. 

Looking: At Art. Visited White Rabbit and hope to drag the kids to a few more galleries in the holidays...

Enjoying: Growing the Woolies seedlings.

Waiting: To find out what's happening with the boat we booked through the now collapsed travel agent. (Should be fine, would like to know it is. I feel for all the people who lost their jobs. That must be devastating).

Watching: Utopia. Still love that show.

Needing: To lose weight. Have to fit into my Gatsby dress soon. It won't be a good look!

Wearing: Fab recycled plastic legging that give 10% of profits to save the Tigers (or choose your own animal here

Following: Fefe - the daily song he and Leeroy are doing for 365 is so hilarious and often the highlight of my day. You can follow his FB here and it will pop up in your stories. This is not his best song but it's off the new album and largely in English.

Loving: This fabulous city. I love Sydney 

Giggling: At Between two ferns (the movie). I didn't think it was very funny and then the next night I went to see a movie at the cinema and an ad for a Christian Bale film came on and I literally burst out laughing and couldn't stop (triggered by the opening scene in Between to Ferns....)

Sorting: Out toys we don't need. As I've mentioned, I leave them on the fence. I've been moving through the 'car' box and they're going daily. But, I'm giving away this car carrier, in perfect condition and someone keeps taking the cars out of it but not the carrier! It's driving me crazy! I replenish the cars in it sometimes twice a day! Why don't they want the carrier too??

Getting: Crazy (see above).

Wishing: You all a happy holiday if you have time off, and safe travels if you are going away.

I'll be back mid October....see you all then!
