Things I love Thursday 20/3/2014

Happy Thursday sweetheart!  I hope that this week has been kind to you.  We’re nearly at the weekend, so a break is in sight if you need one.  Thinking about all the things that have made me smile this week always gives me the boost I need to make it through the last little bit of the work week.  So let’s get to it!

This week I love:

– My mum.  It’s her birthday tomorrow and I am looking forward to celebrating with her.  She is such an incredible person and I feel so blessed to be her daughter.

– Frozen.  I finally got around to seeing it last weekend and I absolutely loved it.  I think it’s brilliant that Disney are now making more films that focus on relationships outside of romantic partnerships.  I adored Brave because of the mother-daughter relationship, and Frozen was wonderful because of its focus on sisterhood. Plus the music was awesome and the animation left me with a slack-jaw.

– Miss Jelly-cat, who has been cheering me on as I take my outfit photos each day.

– Doing lots of driving practice.  I went out with my aunt on Wednesday and last Sunday Mum and I drove all the way to Badaginnie and back.  I am slowly getting more confident and my skills are improving little-by-little.

– Jessica by Bryce Courtenay.  I began reading this book on the weekend and I haven’t been able to put it down. I’m almost finished it already.  It’s such a gripping tale and I can’t wait to see how it ends.  I bought a second-hand copy on the recommendation of many friends, but I didn’t truly expect to like it.  I’ve read a couple of Bryce Courtenays’ other books and I’ve hated them.  I didn’t even finish The Power of One because I disliked it so much.  But Jessica is different.  Not only do I feel really attached to the title character, but the story moves really quickly and is fascinating.  I definitely recommend it (but be warned, there are some triggering scenes including violence and miscarriage).

– Adding an extra blanket to my bed and getting all snuggly.

– Freshly washed hair.

– Lemon drizzle cake.

– Finding a yoga workout that works out all the kinks in my hips and hamstrings.  I get awful sciatic pain at times, and this workout helps to ease the tension in my legs and hips.  So relaxing.

Kookie Bazaar on etsy.  This shop has the most fantastic range of pop-culture mugs I’ve ever seen.  I love quirky mugs, and I could have a field day in this store.   There are so many mugs that I would love to add to my collection, but I think that this Arrested Development one is my favourite.

– Starting work on a little baby cardigan for my mate Corrine.  I found this gorgeous puffy baby yarn in a craft store for 50 cents a ball  and I thought it would be perfect for making some goodies for Corrine’s little bub.  It’s so cute and I can’t wait to show you the finished product.

– Sweet potato fries.

– My new steam mop.  I feel like such a nerd, but this appliance is incredible.  My parents bought it for me and I just love it.  I normally hate mopping my floors because it’s such a chore and the smell of most floor cleaners gives me a headache.  My steam mop makes mopping much easier and it doesn’t use any chemicals which smell bad.  Hooray!

What do you love this week?


    • I finished it on the weekend and I just loved it. I’ve only read a couple of other Bryce Courtney books, and how I’m excited to read some more. Jessica is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time.
