Sharing 20 random thoughts right now

Inside - Sharing 20 random thoughts

1 - I often buy parcels online, and don't open them until I need the contents. I have two parcels from 2012 here that I have never opened, and can't remember what's in them.

2 - My hairdresser has been cutting my hair for 17 years. She's now a school mum with kids at the same school as mine.

3 - I hate Netflix. Actually, I hate the overwhelm of having to choose what to watch on Netflix. If I had my way, we'd watch "The Good Wife" all day, but Steve hates it.

4 - We've finished 2 series (on Netflix) in the last week. First, we watched series 3 of Broadchurch, then we watched Paranoid over the weekend.

5 - The perfect number of episodes to watch in one sitting is 5. Any more than that, and I get the guilts (and a numb bum.)

6 - I can't stick to my editorial calendar. I've written one out every week for the last month, and even today is completely off topic.

7 - We're currently renovating our kitchen, moving it downstairs because our new fridge couldn't be installed upstairs.

8 - We've wanted to move our kitchen downstairs for years, but have never been able to afford the new cupboards. Now, needs must.

9 - My first ever job was designing kitchens for my parents business, but I can't remember a single thing about it for my own kitchen.

10 - The last time I drank a cup of coffee was just after Natalie was born.

11 - I still have some NZ Caramilk chocolate left, but Douglas stole a whole block from me. (I found the empty wrapper under his bed.)

12 - I don't sleep very well when Steve is home. He's worked away and nights for so long that I'm used to no noise in bed. He snores terribly.

13 - Sophie still sleeps in my bed. She doesn't snore, and loves snuggling. When she finally decides she wants her own room and bed, I'll probably sleep badly, too.

14 -  I emptied my bookshelves on Saturday for the kitchen reno. There are lots of books that I know I haven't read, and don't want to, but I don't want to get rid of them, either.

15 - I still haven't finished my craft room sorting after pulling the carpets up in March.

16 - I also haven't finished the binding on the quilt I started at craft retreat two years ago.

17 - After years of trying different systems to keep track of my life, my bullet journal is still the number one thing I use daily, and have stuck with longest.

18 - The only other things I have stuck to for longer than a year are blogging, scrapbooking, and Steve.

19 - I bought 3 pairs of shoes last week. One pair needs to go back, but I'm a little embarrassed because I tried so many pairs on in the shop. I love my Frankie4's best.

20 - Making myself write today has reminded me that it's ok to write without a purpose.

Today's post inspired by the prompts on this pin. I'll probably do more of them, too.

Linking up with One Mother Hen, and Denyse Whelan.


  1. It's always ok to write without a purpose! I was wondering what happened with the fridge thing haha.

  2. Good luck with the kitchen renovation. Never much fun but very necessary, especially if your fridge won't go upstairs!

  3. I LOVE this post.... all those random things about people, I really enjoy reading them. And..... I want to know what's in the boxes! Open the boxes....puhlease! They could have something really great in them. (;

  4. Love this 'random' post! I don't envy you the upheaval of moving the kitchen. We gutted our kitchen and re-fitted it a few years ago and it was a real pain not being able to do all the things we take for granted. But oh how lovely it will be when you have finished and you have a new kitchen!

  5. I always enjoy posts that talk about the blogger behind the blog - it makes things so much more personal and friendly. I don't envy you any of your half finished projects, but you seem so okay with it all that I think you'll manage everything (includind a kitchen reno) with no stress at all!

  6. I'd love a new kitchen, just the cupboards really, three doors have fallen off! Hubby most excited about doing it, just so he can have a dishwasher. I don't think he likes this model lol

  7. Randoms are read, maybe not to experience..aka the fridge not fitting. OMGosh what a time that must have been!!
    Thank you for linking up for #lifethisweek 21/52. Next week's optional prompt is "How Did My Blog Start"
