Wishing: cake had no calories...
Enjoying: a mix-tape from my husband
Waiting: for sunshine

Buying: Moomin PJs and more thrifty bits and bobs
Watching: classic movies from my childhood - "Jurassic Park" and "Ghostbusters" mostly

Marvelling: at the amount of little hats that are arriving at my stall already!
Cringing: at how rubbish people can be to each other.
Needing: to sleep properly
Questioning: how fast time flies, how can the days be getting shorter already?
Smelling: the flowers in the garden and the Raspberry Crumble in the kitchen
Wearing: pretty Cath Kidston dresses and skirts 
 how friends become family and how we cross the paths of others
Thinking: that I can't wait to visit the Rob Ryan exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park
