#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 15th October 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster.

If we were having coffee today, you would be joining my husband and I at our favourite Chinese restaurant, the Beijing Rendezvous for some All-You-Can-Eat lunch. I hope you’ve had a good week? I have missed our regular chats, it’s nice to be back!

I feel the happiest I’ve been in a long time, thanks to a wonderful day yesterday. I don’t want to jinx anything, but I will say that it looks like our long search for a house has finally come to an end!

Aside from viewing houses, I’m slowly starting to recover from my chest infection and I’m back at work, thank goodness! It’s surprising (but nice) how much I miss the place when I’m not there. It can be incredibly stressful at times, but the people I work with make it worthwhile.

Well I must get going, as we are about to head over to the cinema to see Blade Runner 2049… I hope it lives up to the hype! Thank you for joining me for this Coffee Share, I hope you have a lovely week ahead. Don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up.

Luna Lovegood Funko Pop! Vinyl – My Luna Pop! collection is coming along nicely… I knew they would become addictive, but they’re just so cute!

Beanies Pumpkin Spice – I am loving the new Pumpkin Spice instant coffee from Beanies, it tastes lovely and it also saves me having to mess with syrups to get the flavour right!

Number Three

May Contain Squirrels – My job involves dealing with a LOT of parcels and I have seen some weird and wonderful things, but this one from Pip & Nut has made me laugh the most!

#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 8th October 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster.

It’s been such a long time since our last chat, over two months in fact, so we have a lot to catch up on! My apologies for being quiet for so long, but I’ve had a tough time dealing with illness, loss and a heavy workload. I just didn’t have the heart to write anything when I did get a spare moment, but I’m glad I pushed myself to continue Three Things Thursday as it kept me going.

I don’t want to dwell on things for long, so lets get to the important part… coffee! I’ve just had a new delivery of Beanies, so I have plenty of flavours for you to choose from including Pumpkin Spice. Now that you have a drink, pull up a chair and tell me everything that you have been up to since we last spoke!

As I said, I don’t want to focus on the negatives, but one thing I will mention is that unfortunately we weren’t able to keep Merlin. Bailey just wouldn’t take to him at all and became very depressed. It was upsetting for all of us, as he was such a lovely dog, but we had to do what was best for both of them. The good news is Merlin went back to his mum and is being well looked after and Bailey is back to his old self again.

Moving on to happier things, my husband and I have been busy covering Roverfest, Cumbria Classic and Motorsport Show, Ormskirk MotorFest, Pistons & Props and most recently the MX-5 Owners Club’s National Rally, as well as enjoying some lovely days out with friends and family. One restaurant in particular was really special, the Allotment in Birkdale. The food was wonderful (and included edible flowers) and there are so many little details in the décor, such as flower pot sinks, trowels for door handles and plants everywhere.

We went to our first Peterborough Beer Festival and I discovered some lovely wine (I’m not much of a beer drinker) and food. The highlight over these past weeks for me, has been my husband’s anniversary present. He bought us tickets for a ride on The Jacobite steam train, which Harry Potter fans will have seen crossing the iconic Glenfinnan viaduct in the films. It was a dream come true, made even more special by the fact we went exactly “Ninteen Years Later” to the day and I got to enjoy a chocolate frog, some Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans and a Butter-Bru hot chocolate during our journey!

One of my all-time favourite films is Kingsman: The Secret Service, so I’ve been excited about The Golden Circle ever since it was announced. We finally got to see it the other week and although I didn’t think it was as good as the first film (which to be fair, would be hard to beat anyway) it was still highly enjoyable and over-the-top as expected. I can’t wait for it to come out on DVD so I can watch it again!

Speaking of watching things again, we’ve been re-watching Life on Mars, which is one of our absolute favourite shows and despite knowing the ending it’s still a wonderfully gripping show. We’re re-watching Ashes to Ashes next week, which I’m really looking forward to.

Well I think that’s pretty much everything, thank you so much to everyone who has continued to visit this blog and those of you who participate in Three Things Thursday, I really appreciate it! Have a great week ahead and don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up (if anyone knows of a Linky List, please do let me know). Hopefully I shall see you again next week!

Elton John – Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting – I saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle recently, and this song has been stuck in my head ever since. It’s great for motivation when you have a lot of work to get through!

Scrapbook up-to-date – I’ve been so busy with work and everything else that’s being going on, that I’ve not had time to do any scrapbooking. I was 3 months behind and things were building up, but I was finally able to sit down yesterday and get my books up-to-date, ready for the next adventure!

Mermaid Make-up Brushes – I’ve had my eye on these beautiful make-up brushes for a long time, and I finally decided to treat myself! They’re even prettier in real life and bring a smile to my face whilst I’m getting ready on a dreary day.

Number Two
Date Night
Celebrating Mini Milestones – As well as celebrating significant milestones in our relationship, my husband and I also like to mark the occasions of some of our more random and silly ones. The latest one was on Tuesday, which we celebrated by drinking Champagne and watching James Bond… as you do!

Number Three
3TT3.14.09.17
Ravenclaw Lanyard – I found some leftover Ravenclaw ribbon whilst I was sorting through some sewing supplies, so I decided to have a go at making my own lanyard for my door card. I’m rather pleased with how it turned out… plus it was much cheaper than buying one!

The Jacobite – My husband’s anniversary present to me was a trip on The Jacobite steam train. If you’re a Harry Potter fan then you’ll know that the train crosses the Glenfinnan viaduct which is an iconic location in the films. It was a dream come true and just to make it even more special, we went exactly “Ninteen Years Later” to the day!

Butter-Bru Hot Chocolate – This has to be the nicest tasting hot chocolate (which was topped with popping candy) I have ever had! I enjoyed a cup on board The Jacobite, which sells a range of Harry Potter treats such as chocolate frogs, Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans and themed cocktails.

Number Three
3TT3.07.09.17
Marmalade Fudge – Two things I love are marmalade and fudge, so I was delighted to discover this new addition to Dalemain’s shop. I wish I’d bought more than one bar as it’s absolutely delicious!
