What I have loved this week! Week 24. #FridayFavourites

It's Friday again and this past week has flown over. It has been a good week despite the weather not being very June like. I've had my blanket back out, jumpers on, I did think about putting the heating on mid-week and don't even get me started about the rain! It has rained every day over the past week and looks like we're getting more over next week! Ugh!

Anyway, I am here today to share some of the things that I have loved this week and I am of course linking up with Erika and Andrea to share them.

What I have loved this week

Bon Jovi - Forever!
The new album, Forever from Bon Jovi was released last Friday and I have been listening to it a lot!! I love all of the songs, obviously some more than others but the whole album made me smile, it really is uplifting and the best music that they have released in years! Even my girls are humming along and tapping their feet to it.

Clothes from Shein! 
My order from Shein was delivered on Saturday and I was so happy with what arrived! I wrote a blog post about some of my favourite items. Everything seemed to fit so well and I feel like I got some bargains. My family were happy with what they got too. Some Taylor Swift and Pride t-shirts for my eldest, some skirts and tops for my youngest and some shorts and t-shirts for my fella.

My dad's new/old car!

Reliant Scimitar

My dad has a thing for old cars and has bought himself a new one, a Reliant Scimitar. It needs work doing on it and it only has the drivers seat in it but it's something to keep him busy and I think it will be in the road by the end of the summer. It's from the 1960's and the bonus is when he gets it roadworthy he won't have to pay vehicle tax on it as it's so old.

Home alone!
I had a day home alone on Tuesday! It doesn't happen often, in fact I can't remember the last time it did happen. My fella and youngest were at work and college and Becky who is usually sleeping before or after a night shift had slept at her friends house so I had the whole house to myself! I didn't do anything exciting, I vacuumed upstairs and the stairs which I can't usually do when Becky is sleeping. That was the highlight of my day. lol It was nice not to have to tip-toe around making sure I didn't make too much noise.

I watched the last few episodes of Killing Eve that I thought I had seen but soon realised I hadn't, I wasn't happy with the ending. Hmmf! Anyway, I finished it and Bridgerton popped up on my screen. It has been on my to watch list for years but I never got around to it or understood the hype! I totally get it now! I am well and truly hooked! The costumes, music and romance of it all have got me! My favourites are Penelope & Eloise at the moment. I was doing well at avoiding spoilers until yesterday when the new episodes were released. I have seen someone in a wedding dress who was nowhere near getting married at the part I am watching! 

Tomatoes are growing!

Tomatoes growing

My dad showed me his tomato plants while I was visiting him on Monday and I was very annoyed that his actually had tomatoes growing on them. He still has his in a greenhouse so they are thriving, mine are outside! Hmmf! Anyway, I came home and had a really close look at my plants and found I do have tomatoes growing, they were hiding around the back of the plants!! Hooray! 

Blogger issues are fixed!
I have been struggling to insert links and resize images over the last few weeks! It has been so frustrating and I have had no motivation to write blog posts as it was such a faff but as of writing this everything seems to be working as it should. I know I have probably spoken to soon and it will probably stop working by the time this post goes live but it was actually fun to write this blog post without any fuss.

What have you loved this week?

Friday favorites


  1. I love your dad's new car! I feel like I know him after your Father's Day post and I can imagine that he's going to have a great time restoring it. I hope Blogger's issues are fixed - trying to change the font has been SO frustrating. I just can't seem to get into Bridgerton. I'll have to come back to it another time.

  2. What a fun project for your dad! My blog links are still acting funny, so maybe you got lucky with this post! Hope you have a good weekend.

  3. I really have to give Bridgerton a try; I tried once but didn't really even watch the first episode and yet it does look like a show I'd enjoy! I have been getting so frustrated with Blogger too but it does seem like most everything is working again but I'm hesitant each time I try.
