What I have loved this week! Week 19. #FridayFavourites

This week has felt like a short week with us having a bank holiday on Monday. I have been muddled up with what day it has been. Monday felt like a Sunday, I did my Wednesday jobs on Tuesday so that didn't help matters and then Thursday felt like a Friday. I am hoping today feels back to normal and today feels like the start to a weekend.

Today I am linking up with Erika and Andrea and share some of my favourites from this past week.

What I have loved this week

WWE Backlash!
I am totally back into watching the wrestling again and watched the live event over the weekend. I love it when they have shows in Europe as the fans are always amazing! The fans in France sung every word to everyone's theme and it was just one of those wow moments! Next month there is a live event in Scotland so I am hoping the UK fans don't let us down. heheheh

We went to the pub bingo again this week and won again, not quite as much as last time but my eldest and her friend won about £30 between them and a couple of drinks and I won a free bottle of wine! I asked the pub to save it for me for the next time I am there so that will be a cheap evening out. hehehe

Gavin and Stacey!
They are making one more episode. It was announced last week. Christmas day can't come soon enough! Gavin and Stacey is one of those shows which I can watch again and again, know word for word and still laugh along to. I usually can't stand James Corden but I do love him in this. 

Tidying the garden.

Cutting the grass in the back garden

My fella and I were up early on Monday and had a tidy in the garden. The grass was in desperate need of a cut and I did some weeding. Stu got some new wire for the strimmer off my dad so could go right around the edges and trim all the grass. It looked so much nicer when it was finished although it will probably all need doing again in a couple of weeks after the weather we've been having. We've still had plenty of rain but lots of sunny days too. It's 20C as I am writing this and it's supposed to be even warmer tomorrow and Sunday.

I started watching Manifest this past week. I am sure I remember years ago I read about it being cancelled but then they made one last season the finish the story. "Manifest" focuses on a group of people who board a flight home from the Bahamas in 2013 only to touch down in 2018, though to them it seems like no time has passed. The passengers soon find themselves receiving mysterious visions they call Callings, which often lead them to save lives or solve crimes.

New hair!
I did my hair over the weekend, going from purple to a red/pink depending on what the lighting is like. Dying my hair is a process that I have to trust. I always panic when I put the bleach on to lighten it, this time it turned a pastel blue getting rid of the purple, the red dye looked very dark but in the end I was happy with the colour. It went on evenly and I got all of my hair covered so I'll take it as a win. It's not quite the red that I wanted but I will take the pink.

Country music.
I have never disliked country music but I wouldn't say I was a fan but I found myself listening to the top 40 music countdown this week and a lot of it seemed to be country. There were a handful of songs which I have added to my Spotify playlist to listen to while I am doing housework. Austin by Dasha, A bar song by Shaboozey of course Texas Hold Em by Beyonce were my favourites. Then I fell down a rabbit hole of finding other country songs that I like the sound of. I have a whole Country music list now. 

What have you loved over the past week?

  1. So fun to discover new music to like! I have heard good things about Manifest. I watched one episode, but forgot about it and didn't watch again. Maybe I should sometime. Have a good Friday and weekend!

  2. Great favorites! I haven't heard of Gavin and Stacey, will have to see if I can find it.

  3. We didn't even have a bank holiday on Monday and I still feel like I've been off on what day it is all week! The yard looks great and so does your hair. I remember watching Manifest but I'm not sure we ever finished it...

  4. The back garden looks so nice! Enjoy these warm days! Happy Mother's Day (US holiday)!

  5. Your post today reminded me we started watching Manifest. I think we only saw the first few episodes, but we may have to pick it back up now. We need something to watch. Have a nice weekend!

  6. It sounds like you had a lovely week mate. Yay to the bingo win! Free wine is always a bonus.
    Your garden looks lovely. You have been busy.
    We've started to watch Manifest too. So far so good. I'm still watching Powerbook II - Ghost and it's so good.
    Love your hair, pink really suits you. xx
