Life Rambles: Friday Favourites #91

Greetings one and all. Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a good week? I for one feel like I have finally recovered from my half marathon race. It no longer hurts when I move and I don’t cry at the sight of stairs anymore. So that’s good! As for this week there have been a whole host of wonderful things worth talking about. So grab a coffee and settle down to read about my highlights from this week.

<>Brunch at The Railway Tea Rooms is always a favourite and Saturday’s visit was no exception. Fi and I had visitors for the weekend and they all arrived in time for brunch o’clock. I went for my ‘usual’; flat white and a vegetarian breakfast bap with added bacon (I like the veggie patty, but also BACON). We sat outside and did all the talking. Plus we wanted the tiny toddlers practice their french and waddle around the courtyard.


<>I finished The Midnight Peacock this week. It’s the fourth and final book in the Sinclair’s Mysteries series and it’s a wonderful end to the collection.

<> On Wednesday night Fi and I made salmon faijtas for dinner. So good! We even remembered to pick up soured cream so we were totally winning that night. It’s been a highlight of my week since!


<>The next highlight to talk about is a night at the theatre on Saturday. After feasting at Wahaca my friends and I he headed into the National Theatre to Jane Eyre. Yes, this is the second time that I have watched this, and yes it’s just as good as I remember. Unfortunately we had irritating people sitting behind us who talked through practically the whole thing. But even that couldn’t dampen our glee at the brilliance of the play.

<> I read the following quote in Homegoing (which is my current read) earlier this week and I wanted to share it here. The family is like the forest: if you are outside it is dense; if you are inside you see that each tree has its own position. 

<> Food again! I discovered a new favourite eatery near my office. On the Bab is a Korean street food place and the food is absolutely delicious. I opted for fried chicken on the buns and apart from a bit too much kimchi it was so good. I’m already thinking about heading there again soon.

<> And finally I started a new Netflix series this week and I am utterly hooked. Has anyone else watched Timeless? Not only is there time travel, but it’s stuffed full of mystery, lots of laughs and also all the interesting history to learn (and understand).

So there we have it. A list of highlights from my week. Looking back it’s been quite a good one I think. Who knew!
