Current time: Monday evening, 9.40pm
In my glass: Hot chocolate: Put 5 spoonsful of Galaxy hot chocolate powder chocolate powder (says 4 on the jar) into a large mug. Add a slug of milk. Whip up with the battery operated whipping-up thing. Add hot water to about an inch from the top of the mug, and balance as many marshmallows as you can on the top (4 easily, 5 if you are determined enough). Wait 5 minutes or so before drinking, to let the marshmallows go all nice and melty.
In my belly: Spinach and ricotta stuffed pasta, piccolo tomatoes, courgette and avocado.
In my ears: This afternoon I had a gorgeous bubble bath and listened to the soundtrack to the Princess Bride, a lovely CD which I have coveted for a long time.
Out the window: Dark and very cold. I think it's due to be -5 tonight.
On the editor: Hot air balloon photos from the weekend.
Last watched: Call the Midwife, a new series which started yesterday. I loved it, and there's a book, too!
Feeling good about: Meeting up with my Mum tomorrow. We've not seen each other for a couple of weeks so it will be nice to catch up. We are off to buy material for tea towels. My latest project is learning how to use a sewing machine, so I thought I'd make some tea towels for practise. I am also hoping to pick up some new cushions to go inside our covers, and we will no doubt have lunch or a little cake and a cup of tea.
Feeling bad about: Terrible things in the news lately. Recently I have seen the news several times, when to be honest I don't usually watch it. Some really tragic things have happened in the last week or so, and my heart goes out to the people involved.
By my bedside: The Artist's Way, which I am working through with a group of online friends at the moment and Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson, which is about a woman who wakes up every morning with no memories. It's quite intriguing so far. I suspect foul play...
Making me think: In April we are going to decorate our bedroom. We have a royal blue carpet which has to stay, but other than that we have free rein, so I am currently trying to put together some ideas. Sounds like a good excuse to spend some time on Pinterest.
