1. Have you tasted these Turkish Delight Thins from Morrisons? Well don't. You'll be left with an empty box and the sickly feeling that you never should have started!

2. I went to see Disney's Frozen at the start of the week and I LOVED it! I love all Disney animated movies, but this one is right up there! Go see (if you haven't already)!

3. I've been feeling out of sorts all week so I decided a bath was in order.  I used to hate baths but lately I've been enjoying a good soak! This Santa sack bubble bar from Lush was in a gift set I bought last year but it smelt awesome and turned my bath the colour of Irn-Bru!

4. It's not Christmas til you've seen Elf, ammaright?

5. Still feeling pretty run down mid-week I did something I rarely do - I had an evening of nothing. No plans, no interruptions, nothing but me time. I came home from work, put the electric blanket on, got into my cosiest jammies and had a wonderfully snuggly evening in bed. I watched This Is 40 and Anna Karenina before falling asleep at a very reasonable time!

6. Our Trekathon continued this week with two of my favourites so far, but especially Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. It was so funny!

7. I had a great day out at HollyFest, a Christmas market held within a local castle. It was something different and I got lots of ideas for making my own wreath.

8. Whilst Allan was at band practice I sneaked off to watch The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. Of course it was awesome and I want to be an elf when I grow up! I can't wait for the final part of the trilogy.

9. You may find it hard to believe, but this is actually Panda! Long gone are his flowing locks, we gave Panda a serious haircut! He's half the guinea pig he used to be (in size and weight I'd imagine!) but he was totally unfazed by it all. Allan and him are developing a seriously cute bromance and Panda just lets him do anything!

How has your week been?


  1. This sounds like such a cosy, Christmassy week! Hope you're feeling better now xo

  2. Panda is adorable even without his hair;)

  3. Thanks Laura, I'm feeling much better now!

  4. I was so scared to cut his hair Monique! But he actually seems happier without it all! :D
