Anticipating watching Terminator Genisys out July 1st, featuring ‘The Mother of Dragons’ Amelia Clarke as a less ripped version of Sarah Connor. I won’t explain the plot as the trailer does that so if you don’t like spoilers I’d stop watching after 45 seconds!


Shopping locally in Unicorn a deli in Chorlton. I bought some black bean salad which I’m going to be making myself this Summer and some avocado humus which goes beautifully with the garlic gathia.

Discovering cute and cool vids online thanks to everyone sharing them on social media. Including A dog that does inappropriate walking handstands and Marvel Superheroes made into pancakes but no Loki though and Black Widow looks cross eyed but it’s still very clever. I can’t stop watching these adorable baby goats running and bleating – d’aaaaw!

Writing positive things. When we first got together (around 6 years ago) The Bloke gave me this beautiful tooled leather notebook. That’s how long I’ve kept it wondering what to do with it. I’ve decided as often as I can – that I will write down something that I’m glad about (I’m averaging around one thing every three of four days at the moment). The Bloke thought this was a wonderful idea. Well it had to be something I’ll want to read again as I’m never throwing it away!

Binge watching The Flash. I’d watched two seasons of Arrow back to back and then I got this mad lyric going around in my head in Mark Bolans voice “Mirakuru is it true?” Definitely time for a change. Plus, Oliver is such a miserable sod and pretty much the only humour comes from Felicity and Diggle. The Flash is a lot more tongue in cheek and upbeat. Anyone else notice they have toned down the squirm inducing – almost insect like noise the CGI door to the Dr Wells secret office makes?



Buying White Jelly Block Heel Sandals from Newlook which I’ve been patiently waiting to come down in price. I got them for a tenner. My big toes are like BFG kinda big and my little toes are pretty little, which is such a contrast people stare before helpfully pointing it out to me, so I like that these have a closed toe. Plus they offer more protection for my toes from bed casters and things being dropped on them (ahem) than open toe sandals. Ok now I’ve got “metal guru, jelly shoe” in my head, ha!

Going gadget crazy – although I have to say these have been bought for me over many christmases and birthdays. Actually the iPod is so old that apps which are even vaguely new won’t work on it anymore and it’s so temperamental. The laptop is amazing for blogging but way too heavy for my weak back to lug around, hence the iPad mini!


I’d love to know if you’ve been up to any similar things latley or written your own round-up post?

    Aww thank you. I couldn’t believe it when he said I should have it. It looks like something really old!
