This week has been tinged with sadness with the loss of both David Bowie and Alan Rickman. I had my own mini tribute to them both by listening to a Bowie playlist non-stop at the gym and watching Alan Rickman brilliantly play the baddie in Die Hard.
I’ve started reading Eloise this week by Judy Finnigan. I have to say I’m not overly impressed but it’s still early days. I devoured a few chapters this morning in bed with a cup of tea.
Ian and I finally finished Making a Murderer this week and it left me feeling incredibly down-heartened and almost helpless, despite really enjoying watching it. it also means we are on the look-out for another series to watch…any suggestions?
Things have stayed pretty healthy this week with lots of soups for lunch and fish and vegetables in the evening. I used my new spiraliser, making courgette noodles with pesto and garlic prawns…delicious!
However, a mid-week trip to the pub resulted in this burger and chips which were so tasty that I’m not going to beat myself up about it.
I made my first roast dinner of the year today for my brother and his girlfriend (but ate it before taking a pic!)
I also had my first hot-cross buns of the year…never too early!
A fun one to start with – this hand wash smells just like the sweets and makes me smile when I use it!
Next, one of the best hand lotions I have found. Non-greasy yet really moisturising, I’ve been keeping this on my bedside table and using it nightly.
Finally, one of my holy-grail items – the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. This stuff is liquid gold for my skin and this bottle will last you ages.
I have finally worn in my new trainers – a Christmas present from Ian. I love these new Nikes!
A staple in this cold weather is a good scarf and this tartan one is one of my favourites. It goes with my red coat and is so soft too.
