making:: a race flag for daniel's upcoming race. creativity juice running low...

reading:: the "fifty shades of grey" trilogy. (meh.)
wanting:: a little yard for blake to play in.
looking:: for the perfect red bow to complete my snow white costume!
playing:: everyday. that's the most important part of my jobscope.
wasting:: time worrying about a messy house.

  1. are you going on your holiday alr? i JUST sent out your package! OOPS. sat on it for a while. anyhoo, you'll get it when you get it! :D and don't worry about forgetting anything - except if it's blake, duh :P unless you're going to a third world country, you'll be able to buy whatever you need to tide you over! xx

    1. heh! I'll keep a lookout for the postman! :)

      you were right about buying everything! :) we most certainly did.

  2. This is such a cool way of taking stock. :) I use a blend of citronella and lavender in my diffuser too!
