I naively thought that as the calendar tipped into March, we would see the arrival of Spring; by that, I mean warmer climes. Sadly this week I’ve braved one too many baltic dog walks and my beautiful pastel Adidas trainers that I bought last week remain firmly in my wardrobe. Come on Spring, we are so ready for you! We all know that I will probably be pining after my winter boots within 6 months but for now, I’m super excited about being on the cusp of a new season.
As I write this, the sun is actually shining so I’m hopeful for better things this weekend. Anyway, what have I been loving this week?
I’m doing that thing again, where I have about 4 books on the go at once. I don’t know if this is an indication of the state of my mind right now, but either way I’ve certainly got something to cover all moods!
This week I’ve been delving back into ‘Room’. It’s a film I’ve been wanting to see for a good while now but I always prefer to read the book first. Already gripped but know it’s going to be harrowing so kind of bracing myself.
Catastrophe is back! I dipped in and out of the first series of this sitcom about life, love and parenting. By the second series I was hooked and so was the husband. We howled with laughter at many points during the last series.
I’ll be honest though, I was squirming during parts of the first episode on Tuesday evening. Call me a prude if you will but yeah *cringe*. As each series is only 6 episodes long, I will however be sticking with it in the hope that it calms down a bit!
The other programme I was thrilled to see back on our screens this week, is Broadchurch. Did you watch it? Now that I have Sky Q I never miss anything! I loved series one of Broadchurch – the scenery, the acting, the storyline – series two seemed to lose its way a little in my opinion. This one has all of the makings to be great viewing though so I’m looking forward to episode 2 next week.
I’ve always loved Coldplay, Fix You being one of my all time favourite songs. Chris Martin’s voice is so distinctive and this new song of theirs can be spotted as a Coldplay track immediately. As always, I’m really enjoying it – Capital Radio you can play this as much as you like!
I managed to sneak into Reading for a bit of retail therapy at the end of last week. On my own! I am loving all the pastels and frills around right now – very girlie. I’m not usually into wearing light colours – if I had my ‘Colours’ done I think I would come out as a Winter or Autumn. However, I couldn’t resist this pastel pink sweater from Zara with the added little frill down the side. At only £19.99, how could I walk away?
Guess what? I made pancakes! I’m guessing that everyone joining in with Little Loves this week is probably going to mention the ‘P’ word. Mine were a tad disappointing so no photographic evidence I’m afraid. Turns out that sitting in the warming drawer for a little too long and our (apparently) ‘non stick’ frying pan weren’t exactly the best combination!
I do love a pancake though. We always make the big thin ones but I fancy having a go at the thicker, smaller ones for breakfast one day. Anyone have a recipe? Feel free to leave it in the comments below.
I spent the best part of 24 hours deliberating over pressing ‘publish’ on this rather personal post yesterday. It might sound weird but I felt compelled to write it and based on the feedback I’ve received so far, I made the right decision. My motivation was to tell people that it’s ok not to have a perfect marriage/family, that behind social media we are all the same – just human beings trying to do our level best at this thing called life.
On that note, have a perfectly imperfect weekend and I’ll catch you all on the other side.
