What little glimpse we had of spring seems to have left Switzerland this week. The weather can only be described as ‘grey’. This hasn’t dampened my mood though and things will become even brighter this afternoon when my mum and her best friend arrive in Zürich for the weekend … and they’re bringing me a brand new camera that I’m very excited to get my hands on.
But before I bid you farewell for a weekend of family fun, here are some things I’ve loved this week.
Some thing I read. I read the funniest article this week that had Paul and I almost peeing our pants with laughter. Reddit asked parents to submit some of the creepiest things their children had come out with and quite frankly, there’s some strange but hilarious kids out there. Thousands of terrifying responses were received and Metro has picked ten of the best. My personal favourite is number 3.
Some thing I watched. I’m still mourning the end of my beloved Broadchurch but I’ve heard rumours of a second series so keeping my fingers crossed for that. But this week, a little bit late to the party, I started watching Endeavour and it is amazing. I loved Morse and loved its Oxford-setting. It’s wonderful to see Shaun Evans pick up some of John Thaw’s quirks and mannerisms. It’s a great watch.
Some thing I wore. In my quest to rejuvenate my make up bag, I’ve invested in a Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin’ Watermelon – a perfect colour for when we get a little more sunshine. Why has no one told me about these before?! It’s a lip balm but with a subtle hint of colour and even though I’ve only been wearing it for a few days now it has already made my lips feel so much softer.
Some thing I listened to. I have not consciously listened to any music this week. Do you ever get days where everything just seems so loud that you simply crave peace and quiet? I’ve felt like that this week. I’ve relished silence with no need to fill it.
Some thing I cannot live without. Time to admit my gluttony. I came across a wonderful toddler-friendly recipe for a no-bake nutella cheescake at the weekend and it was divine. So much so, that when Paul came home from work on Monday night and saw how little there was left, he assumed I’d given some to the neighbours. Nope. Just me.
So that’s what I’ve loved this week. How about you? Anything to share?
