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!

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!

#ThreeThingsThursday Announcement!

I’m delighted to announce that starting from next week Three Things Thursday will be hosted by There She Goes!

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. It’s so nice to sit down once a week and remind myself that I have lots to be grateful for, even when I’m having a tough week.

I’ve found my positive outlook on things has improved so much since participating in Thee Things Thursday and I’m so glad that I joined in. I’m really looking forward to reading about all the things that make you happy and I hope that you will find participating just as enjoyable as I do!

So what is Three Things Thursday? Well put simply it’s a list of three things that have made you happy this week. Your three things can be big or small, anything that makes you laugh or brightens your day!

All you have to do is write a blog entry about the three (or more) things that have made you happy this week and share it via the Inlinkz button that will be at the bottom of each Three Things Thursday post.

Number One

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.

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.

Tickets to the Moonlight Drive-in Cinema – I’ve always wanted to experience a Drive-in Cinema, so when my husband told me we had tickets to see Grease (the perfect film for such an occasion IMO) I was ecstatic! It’s not until May, but I can’t wait… let’s just hope the weather plays nice that day!

Every Single Night by Computer Games – I’m absolutely loving this song at the moment, it never fails to put a smile on my face and just makes me want to dance whenever I hear it!

Ant & Dec performing with Take That – Growing up my favourite presenters were Ant & Dec and my favourite group was Take That, so watching them perform together on Saturday made my inner-fangirl explode with excitement!
