Reading: I am about to start ‘The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles‘ by Katherine Pancol
Wanting: To stop running about getting Christmas stuff ready. Nearly done!
Looking: Through the ‘Flow Book for Paper Lovers‘.
Playing: Christmas songs, I like the ‘This is Christmas’ album by Emmy the Great and Tim Wheeler the best.
Deciding: Whether to order dinner or make it!
Wishing: I didn’t have to go food shopping for Christmas, I don’t have to get much, but I wish it would just arrive in my fridge!
Enjoying: Planning Christmas and what we will make and eat.
Waiting: For school to finish tomorrow. It seems so late that the kids finish school on the 22nd December.
Liking: Christmas/holiday art journaling, with Get Messy Art Journal and Creative Bug.
Wondering: Whether I can squeeze in some ‘art’ time today, I am sure I can get a few minutes somewhere, even if I just squash some colour onto a page.

Considering: Pilates tomorrow.
Buying: Art supplies and magazines.
Watching: ‘People of Earth’ which has just finished but it was funny!

Sorting: Charity for pick up tomorrow.
Getting: All the presents wrapped.
Bookmarking: Jamie magazines with all the recipes I imagine I am going to make.

Happy Wednesday x
Oh I can so relate to the Xbox chatter – or in our case, PlayStation? Gosh, last night the enthusiastic chat that was taking place between my twenty year old and his friends over some war game…I’ve downloaded Kid Logic to listen to on our long haul flight to New York tomorrow! And some others! And I too am looking forward to a more productive year next year! Happy new year, Clare!
