Happy Friday team, how are you all today? I’m very excited that the weekend has finally arrived. Did anyone else feel like we were never going to get to Friday? I don’t know why I felt that way as it’s not been a particularly stressful week but nevertheless it’s felt long! Anyway, onwards and upwards, to the things that have made my week excellent in today’s Friday favourites post.
<> Firstly, top of today’s Friday favourites list, we have the puppy visiting. She brought the parents with her last weekend to fix the shed door. And it meant we had a morning of cuddles and play. Including a full 40 minutes of her sat on my lap as I finished the jigsaw. She’s the dreamiest pup around.
<> Also making me smile this week – holiday planning. This week I’ve been researching for our Australia trip and I’m so very excited about seeing family and exploring the country. It’s going to be a blast. I also booked a hotel for my friends wedding so role on May for another fun weekend.
<> International Women’s Day always makes me happy as it’s so wonderful to see people celebrating the incredible women in their lives. So that’s definitely making today’s happy list.
<> Is anyone else a massive fan of Disney’s Mulan? It’s one of my favourite ever Disney films and I was obsessed with the soundtrack as a kid. So you can imagine my delight when I spotted that someone has reenacted the beginning of one of the best scenes in it – the song ‘I’ll Make a Man Out of You’. You can watch the short clip on Twitter here and it’s so brilliant!
<> Talking of favourite films, they’re doing a sequel to one of my other childhood faves – Mary Poppins. And the trailer was released this past weekend. Doesn’t it look so intriguing and also so true to the original. I. Cannot. Wait.
<> I restarted Friends on Netflix this week and it’s bringing me such joy. It’s been forever since I watched the really early episodes so it’s like rediscovering them all again. Such fun.
<> While I was a massive fan of the snow I’m even more excited to see some blue sky and spring sunshine this week. It’s such a welcome change. It was almost nice to few almost too warm in my winter coat. What a relief that winter is finally relinquishing it’s hold. Hooray!
<> Rounding up this week’s Friday favourites list is my upcoming Mother’s Day plans. We’re planning a day out with The Mothership that includes the Hummingbird Bakery, before heading home for one of Dad’s spectacular roast dinners. It’s going to be an excellent Sunday. Lucky me!
I hope you’ve all had an exceptional week and have a lovely long list of favourite things. What would be top?
