Taking Stock – March 2023

Although April is well under way, here I am still musing about March. It was a busy month hence the tardy retrospective but better late than never and all that. So without further ado, here’s what went down in the month of March.

Baking: This Easy Apple Traybake. I even managed to post the recipe!

Making: Chicken soup and lots of it.

Cooking: Lots of curries – it’s certainly been the weather for it.

Packing: Lunch boxes – we love our yumboxes, they’re so easy and so convenient.

Drinking: Endless cups of tea. It’s like a national passtime!

Eating: All the flavoured Hot Cross Buns. We even found some savoury ones!

Investing: In a table top food warmer. I’ve wanted one for forever!

Marvelling: At the range and price of food in British supermarkets. Lemon Cheesecake Cheddar anyone?!

Joining: Sherry for another In My Kitchen round up.

Blogging: Not as much as I’d like. So many recipes and so little time!

Applying: For a job as an exam invigilator and getting the job!

Attending: My first NHS endocrinology appointment – just a check up and some blood tests.

Finding: The NHS more than satisfactory so far “crosses fingers”

Finishing: My first book in forever!

Reading: Jenny Colgan’s Sunrise by the Sea and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon.

Watching: The Capture, Under the Banner of Heaven and Shrinking for some light relief.

Going: To bed early.

Waking: Up early.

Working: Out with Joe Wicks.

Walking: 10,000 steps a day.

Liking: The snow. Teddy’s not a fan though!

Disliking: When snow turns to ice.

Loving: Seeing all the Spring daffodils! Teddy however, loves watering them!

Clocking: Up 6 months in the UK – can you believe?!

Enjoying: Some double digit temperatures. It feels positively balmy!

Thinking: That time really does fly by when you’re having fun.

Spending: Mother’s Day with David’s mum. His first in person Mother’s Day for 14 years.

Wishing: I got to spend another one with my mum too.

Exploring: Beaches of the North East of England – first time in Whitley Bay!

Getting: New sunglasses. Yes, I went to Specsavers!

Wearing: Said sunglasses. Note the bonus photobomber!

Weekending: In London.

Dining: At the RAC club – so fancy, I didn’t even take any pictures except this one on the way past St James’s Park Lake.

Catching: Up with our friends who moved from Sydney to London.

Knowing: We have made the right decision to move back “home.”

Smiling: At the fun jokes outside one of our local independent stores.

Welcoming: Daylight savings!

Missing: Our friends and furiends down under.

Feeling: Warm and fuzzy.

Spring is definitely in the air and there’s definitely a spring in my step! Now I’ve told you all about my month, I’d love to hear all about yours! Tell me everything in the comments.
