Things I Love Thursday 17/3/2016

Wahoo for Thursday!  I’m feeling extra positive this week because I had Monday off work.  The long weekend was lazy and restful and just what the doctor ordered.  So I’m well and truly geared up for Things I Love Thursday.


This week I love:

  • Colouring in my Game of Thrones colouring book. For the longest time I was too scared to make a mark in it, because the artwork is so beautiful.  But now I’m enjoying filling the pages with colour.
  • Ringo cuddles first thing in the morning.
  • Getting such a positive response to scary blog posts.  Over the past few weeks I’ve posted my first sex toy review (of the stunning Lelo Soraya) and a post about feminism and Mummy Shaming.  Both of these were tricky to publish because they were scary topics for me to write about.  I was worried that I’d offend my readers and scared you wouldn’t want to hear about sexy times.  But you did!  And that’s great, because I loved writing them and I am feeling more confident about posting more of the same in the future.


  • Great op shop finds.   My family and I went to Violet Town for their monthly market last weekend.  I didn’t get anything at the market but I did get a few pretty things at the op shop.  Including this sweet tea tray for fifty cents.

  • Running around the house in my underpants. Because it’s hot and I can.
  • Celebrating the end of the heat wave.  Seriously, 39 degree days in March is bananas.
  • Getting back into more challenging yoga practices.
  • The Office
  • Pets that are stuck but pretending everything is fine.
  • The Black Cauldron.  Such an underrated Disney flick.
  • Making my own char sui pork in lettuce cups.  So flippin’ easy and so tasty and filling. I have a feeling this is going to become one of my regular weekday dinners.

What do you love this week, sweetheart?


  1. Please send some of that excess heat my way! 🙂 We woke up to -2 today, which could be worse of course, but for five days away from the start of spring, it’s still a bit chilly for my taste. On the plus side though, there is some sun, which is ramping up my energy and making Stella a very happy kitty. 🙂

    Many hugs & happy St. Patrick’s Day wishes!

    • Ooooh, I’d happily send some heat your way but it seems to have packed up of it’s own accord. It’s blissfully cool here, still sunny but not hot at all.

  2. Ugh, I am so behind on blog posts! I’m looking forward to reading the ones of yours I missed!
    Ohh, are you using a lot of red in the GoT colouring in book!? 😛
