Icons of the 80’s – We had a fantastic time with our friends in the beautiful sunshine, listening to some great songs and enjoying the atmosphere.

Number Two

Harry Potter Paper Flyers – I spotted this book by chance during a supermarket shop… two of my favourite things in one, Harry Potter and crafts!

Winning this Emma Bridgewater teapot – During my last visit to Vintage Home Southport they asked if I would like to enter a free prize draw to win a beautiful teapot, which I was lucky enough to win.

Number Two
3TT2.08.06.17
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Ravenclaw Edition) – To mark 20 years of Harry Potter, the first book has been re-released in four new editions representing each of the houses. It made my day when my copies finally arrived on my doorstep this week… No prizes for guessing which house I’m in!

Number Three

New Day by Take That – The video is a little weird, but I absolutely LOVE Take That’s latest single! It’s such an upbeat and catchy song that really helps me wake up during my walk to work, especially as the weather hasn’t been so kind this week.

Number One

The Little Mermaid – Quite possibly the most beautiful book I own! I’ve had this on pre-order with Amazon since last year, but it kept being cancelled due to issues with the supplier. I was SO delighted when I spotted it on the Waterstones website. The pages are absolutely gorgeous with lovely illustrations… at least it was worth the wait!

Number Two
3TT2.01.06.17
My finished ceramics – I was finally able to collect my creations from Crafty Badger Ceramics the other day. Unfortunately one didn’t make it, but I’m really happy with how the rest turned out! The largest will be used as a hanging ornament, the owl will be made into a magnet and the other two will be turned into necklaces… I think I may have found a new hobby!

Number Three
Lovely card from my Sister-in-law 💖 #NewJob
Surprise Card – My Sister-in-Law sent me this card yesterday to congratulate me on my new job, which was a lovely surprise. It’s my first day today, so hopefully all will go well!

#ThreeThingsThursday – What made me smile this week…

The devastating terror attack on Manchester this week has made it hard to smile.

The arena has always been a big part of my life and I have spent countless evenings there, watching my favourite artists perform… I cannot put into words how heartbroken I am for the people of Manchester and everyone who has been affected by this tragedy.

I debated for a long time whether Three Things would be appropriate to post this week, but I feel more than ever we need to share love, happiness and positivity 💕

Those of you wishing to help and show your support can follow these steps here.

Job Offer – I mentioned the other week I had some potentially exciting news which I can finally share… I’ve been offered a permanent job position which I have accepted! I’m delighted as means I will no longer have to rely on freelance work… this will make a huge difference to my life and help my long term goals immensely.

Number Two
3TT2.25.05.17
Wonderland Live 2017 Take That have always put on absolutely stunning live shows and their latest tour is no exception! The song choices were fantastic and I was mesmerised by the beautiful sets and gorgeous costumes when I saw them perform earlier this week.

Number Three
3TT3.25.05.17
Grease – My first ever Drive-in Cinema experience was SO much fun and such a novelty! I had a lovely evening, especially as Grease is one of my all time favourite films and the perfect choice for a Drive-in.

Adding to our family tree – Thanks to my aunty and chatting with my in-laws over the weekend, I have lots of names which I can add to our family tree. It’s an ongoing project which has taken many months, but Findmypast has proven to be an invaluable tool and I love watching it grow.

Number Two
Completed at last! #Panini #StickerAlbum #FantasticBeasts
Finally completing my Fantastic Beasts sticker album – I’ve been collecting the Panini stickers since December, which has been quite a task as most of our local shops stopped selling them a while ago! Thankfully I was able to order the last few I needed online.

Number Three

She’s A Lady – Miss Congeniality was on TV the other night, and this song which is in the film has been stuck in my head ever since… I can’t help but smile when I hear it!

Being chosen for the Mystery Blogger Award – It was a lovely surprise to be nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award the other day and really put a smile on my face when I read it. Thank you once again to Janet for the nomination!

Number Three
Beautiful ending to a great day 🌇
This beautiful sunset – The perfect sky last night summed up a great day for me, I received some potentially exciting news (which I will share at a later date if it all goes well), had a lovely evening with friends and the books I’ve been waiting for since March finally arrived… watching this beautiful sunset was like the cherry on top!

I first discovered Three Things Thursday when the lovely Emily at Nerd in the Brain became the new host of the Weekend Coffee Share (which you can read all about on her fantastic blog here) and I instantly loved the idea.

Sightseeing in London – My husband treated me to a day out in London the other day and we had a whirlwind tour of the capital which was SO much fun! We managed to see Cockfosters, Marble Arch, St Pancras, Paddington Bear, Platform 9¾, Sherlock Holmes Statue, Tower Bridge, Tower of London, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Leicester Square, Piccadilly Circus, Baker Street, King’s Cross, Tower Hill, Paddington, Oxford Circus, Chinatown, Westminster, Garfunkel’s and The Betjeman Arms as well as the other two places on this list…

Number Two
#HarryPotter
House of MinaLima – Being a huge Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts fan and owning several MinaLima books, I’ve wanted to visit this wonderful place for ages. All four floors of the house are full of artwork and props from the films, which are absolutely stunning. Best of all you can take as many pictures as you like and it’s totally free!

Number Three
3TT3.04.05.17
Yellow Submarine Bath Bomb – I love Lush products and The Beatles, so when they released this bath bomb during the Lush Summit I was so excited to try one! Being an Oxford Street Exclusive I thought I’d have to miss out (the prices on eBay were ridiculous) but thanks to my surprise trip to London I was able to visit the world’s largest Lush store and pick a few up, along with a few other exclusives.

Natalie Vaseline Tin – I collect the Lip Therapy tins and as far as I’m aware I have every edition so far… being able to add a personalised tin to my collection really made my day!

George’s Marmalade – I brought back this jar of delicious marmalade from my recent visit to Dalemain Mansion, which is home of the Marmalade Awards. It’s been a wonderful addition to breakfast this week!

Number Three

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining – I spotted this cute little sign in a sale the other day and just had to have it! It’s a nice reminder to stay positive, also the rain drops remind me of the music notes from The Clangers, which I love.
