So the infamous Belgian Lurgies have come to our household. Dammit Belgium, every time I get sick here, you kick my butt. I’m somewhat lacking in brain energy (insert joke about vegan protein here) right now, so we’re going to get stuck into all the wonderful-ness and then I’m going to go back to blowing my nose and complaining about sinus pain.
Oh yeah. Puppy snuggles.
Kris and I had the chance to meet two oh so fluffy, oh so cute, oh so beautiful border collie puppies on the weekend and they melted my little heart. And chewed on my nose. But we’re focussing on the heart melting here.
Are we considering adding another furry member to our household? Maybe.
My head feels like a war-zone and I’ve got snot running wild from both nostrils, except at night, that’s when they prefer to be so blocked up that I get to sleep all night with my mouth open and wake up in my own drool. But during the day, well, you’d think there was some kind of snot-drought and my nose alone thinks it’s going to replenish the World’s nasal discharge stocks.
So yeah tissues. Right now, they are the best thing in existence.
All food is good, but free food is great. Better yet, free homegrown food, now that’s awesome.
We were gifted some free cucumbers and yellow sweet peppers this week and I can’t wait to tuck into them.
Doing nice things for people makes me smile. A little bit because it makes me feel like a better human being than some of the people we have on the planet these days, but also because it makes me think other people can be better human beings too. I don’t go out of my way to do those “random acts of kindness” that people talk about, but I do make sure to take advantage of the opportunity when it arises.
I’m thoroughly enjoying Morning Star by Pierce Brown so that’s making it on to this list. Still, I’m a little devastated about what happened to my favourite character, that, was not wonderful.
A good old weekend hike
Short and sweet, but wonderful all the same. And would you believe it, we didn’t even take the bikes with us! More photos and talk will be coming to the blog soon.
I feel like I’ve been waiting a lifetime for the fourth season of Sherlock to be aired by the BBC, but it’s finally coming back! I had a little watch of the trailer and got all excited about being able to watch it soon. Well, soon as in 2017… But it’s coming back and I can’t wait. I think I might re-watch the other seasons.
And that’s it for this week’s wonderful bits and pieces. What’s been making your week great?
