Just a minute in May

This meme seems like a good way for me to do one massive blog post to sum up all that has happened in May.

LOVING: my new nephew (Baby J) who was born on the 20 May 2009. I've never really been one for babies and children but my friend Jill tells me that you do end up loving your own. But I think this extends to baby nephews as well. I believe that this addition to our family has finally filled that yearning my father has always had for a boy.

MAKING:

Baby Blanket


Elijah for Baby J


READING: When in Rome by Penelope Green, Mansfield Park by Jane Austen, Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - I'm rotating all three titles depending on how I'm feeling.

WATCHING: Harper's Island, Masterchef Australia, Spooks, Love My Way

SHOPPING:

Shiny shoes for work and play.


COOKING: Bundt cakes. I bought myself a bundt mould and from there, I have since made a chocolate and matcha one, a sour lemon one and an apple and cinnamon one from the last Donna Hay magazine.

LISTENING: This American Life (I'm really loving this podcast), getting back into Cast On, CraftLit, Get It Done Guy.

PLAYING: Living a retro life:

That he might really wear these vintage ties



What I would look like if I were me now in the 70's


DOING: The Global Corporate Challenge. I've been going on walks around the harbour during my lunch to try to clock up 10,000 steps each day. I realise that on an average day, I only walk about 3,000 steps.
