Right Now I’m…

… from Downton Abbey on Sunday.  Was anyone expecting that???

… at Miranda Hart.  Funny, funny, funny girl.



The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox by Maggie O’Farrell.  I need to know what happens but I don’t want this book to end.  Do dilemmas come any bigger?  I didn’t think so.

Laughing Some More
… at this photo of my brother.  He really does have a lot of thyme on his hands. Plus I love his shirt.



… chicken and red lentil curry in my slow cooker.  Is there any other kitchen appliance where such little effort is so well rewarded?

… out at the number of mice in the house.  Trap Resistant Mice.  I bought some bait today so hopefully that does the trick.  Until then, whenever I open a cupboard or rummage through a bag, my heart is in my mouth.  Not literally. That would be both unlikely and unpleasant.

… that a mouse infestation in the house is a bad time for my husband to be in the Middle East.

…Cheesy Wotsits.  I’m making the most of our time left in the UK.

… from my run today.  I’m trying to get back into it but it’s as though my body has never exercised before – it’s that hard (as in “difficult” not as a description of my physique).  Maybe I should listen to my body and sit down.  I’m actually very good at sitting down, it’s a gift.

… apple crumble.  Lots and lots of apple crumble.  I am certain this is the last time in my life I will have 3 apple trees in my garden.

… to the first album I have downloaded in a lifetime.  It’s called, wait for it, Now That’s What I Call Running.  How embarrassing.  

… my neck is going wobbly.  It’s a bit early for that isn’t it?  Isn’t it??

… at the skydiver who broke the speed of sound.  I love stories like this, of people pushing their limits so we can see what mankind is capable of.  I did a similar thing recently when I made meringues out of golden caster sugar instead of regular caster sugar.   Talk about adrenaline!

… if I should change the look of this blog as the photo at the top is 3 years old.  But then, to include a more recent photo will be to showcase my floppy neck.  And that would be wrong.  Hmmm.

… Monopoly with friends this Saturday night.  Who says we don’t rock?  But you have to admit – friends, takeaway, beers and Monopoly is a good night.  And who knows?  I might win for the first time in my entire life.

… a birthday party for our soon-to-be 4 year old.  I was meaning to only have 5 children coming and I have 14.  I’m not sure how that happened.

… whoever invented the internet that Facebook wasn’t around when I was a teenager or in my twenties.

… when trying to answer one of my 5 year old’s questions.  They’re hard.  And at the moment, very focused on geography which is not my strongest topic.  

**Panics slightly when trying to think what my strongest topic actually is.  Do I even have one? Shit!**

… saying our goodbyes when we leave London.

… which pub to go to on Thursday night.  We have limited time to do these things, so it’s a surprisingly big decision.

… of a proper Australian BBQ with all the family there.  Heaven!  Ooh, and regular ones thereafter – with friends too!  Yay!

Over to you if you fancy it!  Finish this sentence, “Right now I’m…”

  1. Right now I'm agreeing with you on Downton Abbey – SHOCKER! Poor Lady Sybil. Also, agreeing on Miranda, I don't know how she does it, but the comedy builds up and up slowly each episode until I'm hysterical at anything by the end. Also, I need to read this new Maggie O'Farrell book. I read one of hers a few years back about 2 women in linked, parallel lives (forgotten it's name) and it was unputdownable (!?).

    Right now I'm needing to go to the loo but can't seem to get away from the computer.

    That pic of your brother is hilarious 🙂
