Weekend Friday Favourites

I hope you’re having a great weekend! If I’m honest my mood this weekend is matching the weather outside. Blah. Life throws curve balls sometimes too many at once. But this is Weekend Friday Favourites, things that have made me smile this week or caught my eye!

Scrunchies

Okay, I feel a bit old to be wearing scrunchies as I remember them back in the 90’s. I got some back in 2018 when they first started making their comeback and left them on my dressing table brightening it up. After watching a YouTube video where a hair dermatologist recommended they were the best hairband to avoid hair breakage I was okay, let’s start wearing them again. First at home then I braved wearing them at the gym. The hair dermatologist was right! Less breakage! Now my hair is longer I’d had enough of hair ties tangling up in the ends Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Happy New Year! 

Welcome to the first Weekend Friday Favourites of 2020! I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m only just feeling I’m getting back into some sort of out of whack routine. Monday 6th was an holiday so people are still in the holidays mode. Wednesday was the first climbing class of the year and  I really thought it was Monday! My routine’s always always all over the place but I’m hoping some sort of balance comes to the chaos.

In the meantime this week’s, Weekend Friday Favourites! Things that have made me smile or caught my eye. Always my favourite post to write! 

Switching Off My Phone

Or hiding it as the screen’s cracked (not my fault. Somebody knocked it out my hand sending it flying down the pavement). If I turn it back on, each time it goes a little loco. It’s so liberating. I grew up before mobiles. I got my first one around 17/18. All it did was receive messages and make calls. No games. The screen was like a calculator bar! Yes, I’m old. So I know what it’s like to not have a phone. I’ll admit my phone is addictive. I felt and feel guilty I was on it in the evenings when I should have been spending more attention Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Project Light: September and October

Photography’s about taking an image of light. That’s all photography is, capture of light. Project Light a series of light changing through the seasons captured with nature, landscapes, animals and the city.

My Mum always says you can take the girl out the country but you can’t take the country out the girl. This is partly true. I love living on the outskirts of the city albeit within another town on the boundary, no countryside insight, only mountains in the distance. I have all the city’s amenities at my fingertips. I’m not sure I could go back to living in a small town or the countryside. I like the ease of a city. I have Continue reading “Project Light: September and October”

Weekend Friday Favourites

After another long hiatus Weekend Friday Favourites is back! Back to stay! I hope you’re having a great weekend and thank you for stopping by to check out what’s been making me smile recently or caught my eye!

Battersea Dogs And Cats Home 2019 October Pin Up

I smiled so much with a tear in my eye when October came around on Battersea Dogs And Cats Home 2019 promotion for donations calendar. I donated however I’d prefer charities keep the money they spend on freebies for the animals. I’m convinced this is one of AJ’s relatives. AJ was a London boy and this little one’s marking’s are almost identical. The same tones, positions of markings, that cute serious look. Missing Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Hello October

Happy Autumn Fall! Happy October!

The first of October is a very special day around here. It’s Diesel birthday!

15 years old! How did that happen?! We celebrated with hoomin Mama coming home early, hugs, new toy and saying how much of a good boy and a cutie he is all day. It was his first birthday without his big bruv and he’s doing okay being the only cat. In addition to his hyperthyroidism, he has some tummy issues and is now on the same steroids AJ was. And just like AJ on those steroids he’s peeing more and kicking litter everywhere afterwards. Bad mama forgot cat nip on his birthday. Well I didn’t, I got him a cat nip ball I’d thought he’d go crazy over. He wasn’t too fussed, however almost daily he has a swipe at it. Tom boy’s still got it. He’s still jumping up high, having mad five minutes even if they’re not as often as a few years ago. I’m convinced he thinks he’s 18 in cat years.

The theme around here this year’s been Continue reading “Hello October”
