Happy Friday everyone! How are we all this week? If I’m honest I’m a tad tired. I think my long weekend is catching up with me. I’m certainly ready for my weekend. Especially as this weekend is a completely free one -it’s going to be wonderful. I want to do a little Christmas shopping. I know it sounds early, but I’ve only got one more free weekend between now and the big day! So I know I need to get organised now in order to stop myself from becoming a panicked mess in December. The only other thing on my weekend agenda is a trip to the cinema to watch Murder on the Orient Express. I read the book a while a go so I really want to make sure I catch the film. I’m thinking a Saturday afternoon trip to my local Picturehouse and a Christmas coffee is exactly what I need. But before I plan my whole weekend let’s talk about the very point of this post. My favourite moments from the last seven days.
<> First up, obviously has to be my weekend trip to Paris. I had the most amazing time. So much walking, eating and laughing. Family trips are so good for my soul. Also I have discovered that I love Paris in Autumn – it’s utterly magical. Check out my Instagram for ALL the Paris photos!
<> On Monday I took the day off work because I have all the days to use up and it was so nice to have that extra time this week. I was also super productive which frankly is utterly surprising. I did a giant house clean which always feels so good. And of course that now means I don’t have to worry about that this weekend. Win win I say and therefore definitely a point for my favourite moments list this week.
<> It’s only FIVE weeks until Christmas! How did this happen? But also H O O R A Y! I’m doing my best to embrace all the things. In fact this week I forgot my homemade coffee which really irritated me. So of course I had to treat myself to a coffee in a Christmas cup on my way to work.
<> Also here are a couple of blog posts that have caught my eye this week, so I thought I’d share them here. Number One > this post on Five Ways to Read Your Favourite Blogs from Jasmin is really interesting. I’ve already started to switch from Bloglovin to Feedly and I much prefer it. Number Two > this post from Beckie about everyday sexism and the revelations that are coming to light.
<> On Thursday I had an excellent work breakfast at Dishoom. Now you all know by now how much I love Dishoom and their bacon and egg naan rolls. Anyway I was super happy when my colleague and desk buddy decided that a breakfast celebration was required for her last week in the office. I’m going to miss this lady so much, but every cloud has a silver lining and my bacon and egg naan was definitely the silver lining of that particular cloud.
<> I’ve been organising my Christmas playlist this week, I find it such a magical task. If anyone has any ‘must add’ songs or carols for the festive period then please send them my way.
<> Along the Christmas theme I’ve also started munching on clementines. I love that these fruits are now in season. This past week I’ve taken a couple of these to work each day for an afternoon snack and, even if I do say so myself, it’s probably my best idea ever!
What have been your favourite moments of the week? Have a lovely weekend everyone. Laura xx
