What I have loved this week! Week 14. #FridayFavourites

Hello there and happy Friday! I have had a great week, my fella is all better after testing positive for Covid and the rest of us amazingly didn't catch it, He has had the week off work and my youngest has been off college for Easter break which has been a nice treat but I am lost with what day it is. We have had some sunshine, warm days but have been accompanied by lots of rain. I am linking up with Erika and Andrea and share some of my favourites from this past week.

What I loved this week

Sunday Lunch!
We went to the pub for Sunday lunch, it was the first time since the new owners took over they were serving it and they did a great job. We were lucky to get a table but arrived just at the right time. I had prawn cocktail for starters, roast chicken and all the trimmings for my main and chocolate brownie and ice cream for dessert. The owner was asking for feedback and the only complaint we had was that there was too much food for the main course, we felt bad that some of it went to waste. I got a whole chicken breast, leg, roast and mashed potatoes, parsnips, stuffing, a giant Yorkshire pudding then sides of green beans, cauliflower cheese, swede and carrots.

Earlier in the week we went to the farm shop and bought a ton of bedding plants for the planters in the front garden. There was a lot of weeding to be done before we got around to the planting but it was worth it. They look fabulous!

Easter Eggs!
We have eaten far too chocolate over the past week. Chocolate always seems to taste better in egg form. We've had the big Cadbury one's, Creme eggs and lots of mini eggs too, they are my favourite.

We went to the cinema to see the Barbie movie and enjoyed it so was looking forward to it coming on the movie channels on TV. I have watched it twice over the past week, I do love it! The bonus to watching it over the past week was that I knew all the songs so could have a good sing along.

Apple crumble and custard.
We ate out again at the pub later in the week and for dessert I had apple crumble and custard. I was starting to wonder why it was taking so long to arrive at the table but it turns out that it was made from scratch. I know they advertise home cooked food but still assumed they would use some things ready made and just reheated, it tasted so good!

A pan rack!
Since we had the new gas cooker installed the gas pipe is in the back of the cupboard more than it was before. The pans wouldn't fit in the cupboard so have been sat on the dryer for the past couple of weeks but it was getting annoying so my fella took the wood which came with the cooker packaging, screwed some screws in, attached it to the wall and ta-da we now have somewhere to hang the pans. 

New hair! 
This week I remembered why I don't like the light purple hair that I had, it fades too quickly! It was starting to go patchy and didn't look great so I popped a dark pink colour over the top and this is what I ended up with. It is so bright and will do for another month or so.

Quiz night!
We went to the pub's quiz night and actually did pretty well. We came 2nd! They were doing an online quiz for the first time using the Kahoot app which the kids remember using at school and I think it's a great idea as it stops cheating and people looking up the answers. The questions appeared on the big TV and you picked the correct answer on the app on your phone, you only have about 30 seconds which adds to the fun! It's amazing how many random facts I know that were actually useful. lol

What have you loved over the past week?

  1. Congrats on coming in second! It sounds like you have had a fun and tasty week. I am so glad no one else caught covid!

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely week mate. Your flowers look really pretty and I love your hair! I'm trying to decide if I prefer this or the pastel pink! They both suit you.
    Glad Stu is feeling better and that you girls managed to escape it. xxx
