Hello chaps and chapesses!
Puppies. Graeme has sponsored a guide dog puppy in my name this week, which means that a) he’ll be paying for a guide dog to be trained up, from when she’s a puppy, which is charitable and wonderful, and b) I’ll get regular ‘pupdates’ in the post and on Facebook, which is exciting and just-oh-so-cute. Hurrah for puppies!
Thai food. Graeme took me out for a bank holiday meal at Siam in Chester on Monday. It’s a really lovely Thai place, and the food was dee-frickin-licious. If you’re ever in or around Chester, definitely check it out!
Green Day. I found a Green Day CD in my car this week that I’d forgotten I had – it’s a copy of International Superhits, that my friend Sian made for me when we were in sixth form. She kindly marked out which songs she thought I’d enjoy on the track listing. Listening to it as I’ve been driving round this week has taken me back to my youth – isn’t it amazing how music can bring back memories and feelings so strongly?
Voting. Call me a nerd, but I love going along to vote on polling day. Although the outcome of the election wasn’t what I wanted, it still felt good to do my bit.
Girl time. I spent a thoroughly lovely 24 hours with one of my best friends this weekend. We mooched in Chester, drank a lot of tea, watched a movie, went to a bodybalance class and went for Sunday lunch. Oh, and we nattered. A lot. Weekends like this are so restorative and good for the soul.
What has brought a smile to your beautiful face this week?
