Taking Stock: December 2018

I’ve gotten into the habit of doing one of these taking stock posts at the end of each year – so here we are again! The prompters were developed by the excellent Pip from Meet Me At Mikes and are a great way to press pause and reflect on life right now. If you’d like to play along please do, and let me know so I can see your taking stock reflections as well!

So, here we go!

Making: travel plans for 2018, which always makes me a happy camper
Cooking: things that allow me to play with my new stand mixer – I was spoilt at Christmas!
Drinking: iced long blacks in the morning and rosé or homemade cocktails in the evening
I’m actually already re-reading Brooke McAlary’s book – Slow. I feel like it’s a good one to make sure I’m in the right headspace to kickstart the 2018 I want to have

And that’s it for another year of Taking Stock, and for this little blog of mine. Thanks for all your lovely support this year, you’re all ace! I hope 2018 kicks off in fine style and is full of happiness for you all.

I’d love to see your Taking Stock posts too – so leave a link in the comments if you play along too!
