Life Rambles: Friday Favourites #75

Happy Friday! {Disclaimer: I’m actually writing this on Thursday, so I’m nicely unaware of what the outcome is of the General Election. Something tells me I’m gong to wish I could stay in this limbo for longer…} I’m very glad we’re almost at the weekend, this week feels soooo long. Tell me that’s not just me? I’m not sure what’s made it so long, perhaps it’s the hideous weather? Who know! Anyway, as it’s Friday we’re on to my favourite things post, I wonder what’ll have made it on to the Friday favourites list today, hhhmmm? Read on to discover more!

So first on the Friday favourites list, we have Wonder Woman. I watched it on Sunday and it was perfect. It’s so refreshing to have a superhero movie with an actual story line. Not to mention properly developed characters, in particular female characters. The female characters in this film were just brilliant, from the incredibly strong, fierce Amazonesque warriors to the hilarious Etta, but most of all Wonder Woman herself. She was the perfect mix of compassion, strength and naivety. She’s the superhero I’ve been waiting my whole life for, without even realising it. And that scene when she runs across No Man’s Land, simply incredible.

Getting to vote and have my say is always going to be a brilliant thing for me so that’s definitely on today’s Friday favourites list. It doesn’t matter what we’re voting for, the simple act of democracy in action is always a good thing. Does anyone else feel that immediate sense of pride once you’ve ticked that box? It can’t just be me, can it? Also bringing me great joy yesterday was the #dogsatpollingstations. Such a lovely idea and it’s just full of so many cute pupsters. Although I’m outraged that the parents wouldn’t join in and take Lunabean there – what a missed opportunity.

This week has been chocked full of lovely friends. Whether it’s been sharing lunch, constant WhatsApp messages or perfectly planned emails my friends have been pretty awesome this week. I love that I have friends all over the country and world and from all aspects of my life and that they’re always there with just the right response. That’s pretty awesome isn’t it?

A day of no plans. Yes you read that right, one of my Friday favourites was the fact that last Saturday involved absolutely zero plans. It’s been a while since I had a day like that and it was blissful. I went for a run, made a yummy breakfast, caught up on loads of emails and life admin, before settling down with a good book and then Gilmore Girls. Just what I needed!

 

I’ve read two brilliant books over the last week and after a book that I didn’t enjoy at all – More than This I’m looking at you – that was pretty awesome. So while it’s not my June book post yet I thought I’d add both of them to my Friday favourites list. So here’s to When Dimple Met Rishi and The Keeper of Lost Things. If you’re looking for a new book to read then definitely give those two a try. You won’t regret it!

So there we go, my favourite things from the last week. What would be on your list?
