Currently #7

Reading: I'm about to start re-reading The Girls by Emma Cline for The Girl Gang book club this month. Come and join us, everyone is welcome!

Watching: Game of Thrones has just started back and whilst I'm really enjoying it, I'm also slightly struggling to remember everything that's happened in the seasons before and I keep annoying my boyfriend with all my questions - does anyone else do this?

Planning: blog content for the next couple of months. It's been a bit quiet around here lately whilst I've been so busy with my job and etsy shop, and I really want to get back into blogging.

Making: bookmarks! I've been wanting to sell bookmarks for ages and now they're finally up in my etsy shop! I particularly love the Hogwarts house pride ones. I'll be coming up with lots more designs but if you have any requests, please let me know! 

Stocking up on:
plants! I decided that our flat needed a little more life so we popped down to the local garden centre at the weekend and came away with a gorgeous dieffenbachia (or it's ugly name: dumb cane) and a cute succulent to accompany our aloe vera plant. I'm now a bit addicted and want all of the plants!

Wishing for: more hours in the day. I feel like I've been so busy these past few months but I'm still not getting enough done. I want more hours in the day so I can work, make things, blog and actually have time to relax at the end of it all.

Enjoying: the long days and light evenings. Although autumn is my favourite, I'm actually really enjoying the bright, long days and nights of summer - it makes me feel so much more awake.

Trying: to do more yoga. I've been an on and off gym-goer for a few years and I've dabbled in both pilates and yoga, but I've been trying to make yoga a regular thing lately as I find it really relaxing and it just feels great, it's just about making the time for it.

Eating: slow-cooker curry, particularly this recipe by The Kitchn. It's the perfect thing to stick on, head to work and it's ready and tasting delicious by the time I come home. I like to throw some veggies in there to make it a little healthier.

Goal Setting: This isn't quite a 'goal' but we're hoping to move to a cheaper flat by the end of the year. We moved into this one because we needed somewhere last minute but it's not the best we could get for our money and although it's going to be exhausting and stressful, it'll be worth it in the long run.

Learning: how to become a better teacher. I'm not a teacher in the traditional sense (although I might possibly be considering it, eeeek) but I'm a tutor of maths, English and creative writing and I'm always looking to improve my teaching methods and lesson planning. It's surprised me how much I enjoy tutoring!

That's it! What's been going on with you lately?
