Loving, Needing, Meh! #68

Do you ever get to the end of a working week and feel like you need to go in to hibernation? Yes? Then you will be understanding how I am feeling right now. But, on the upside I am on a one week break as of Monday as October half term has come around once again. This time last year we were getting ready for a trip to Edinburgh, I can't believe a year has gone by since those wonderful couple of days.

^^The beautiful autumn leaves outside work this week^^

This week I have been LOVING:
  • Autumn colours. As much as the leaves have been a nemesis to the Head Teacher and caretakers at work I have been loving them! (Although, getting leaf mush in your shoe at 7.30am is not ideal!).
  • Opening the fridge to find a little Kinder chocolate stick. My man knows how to cheer me up.
  • Planning our half term holiday. It may sound boring to most people but we have an Ikea trip planned and I cannot wait (rock 'n' roll baby!).
  • Yummy Marks and Spencer's dessert treats (thanks dad!).
  • A surprise box of chocolates and card I received from a student this week for helping him out with his computer issues - the chocolates went straight to the real heroes - the IT department!
  • Random cups of tea at 7.15am in the caretakers office (can you tell it has been a big work week?!)
  • Coming home to a big cuddle and a lazy family night on the sofa.
  • Listening to old Genesis and Bon Jovi tunes and reminiscing of the old days!
  • Looking at sparkly Christmas clothes on the tinterweb.
This week I have been NEEDING:
  • To know the date that Boots No 7 are releasing their Christmas calender! (Please be affordable, please be affordable, please be affordable!).
  • To dust off my watercolour set - I've got plans people, I've got plans!
  • Right now I believe I need these Topshop boots. I have prided myself (for years) for not being a 'shoe person', it appears I overlooked the fact that I just might be a 'boot person'.
  • Pumpkins. I want to autumnise (is that a word?) the house - I see pumpkins as a generally lovely accessory for autumn, not just a Halloween decoration. I made some pumpkins last year that lasted a while in the house, see them here.
This weeks 'MEH!':
  • Hitting my dad over the head with empty the cling film box, pretty harmless... until you realise you hit him over the head with the tooth-side of the box...right after he presented you with a yummy caramel shortbread dessert from Marks and Spencer. Oops. Sorry pops!
  • Accidentally knocking Joe's PlayStation 3 controller into water. In my defense I wasn't alone, the cat helped, but she gets away with it as she is cute.


  1. Boot people (and trainer people) are the best sorts ;)

  2. Hi, I believe that the boots NO7 comes out on 29th October and should be £35, or that's what I've heard. I think I'm waiting to see if the You Beauty Discovery advent is going to 1/2 price again this year.
    Fingers crossed you manage to get the boots one :-)

  3. IKEA trip doesn't sound boring at all - quite the opposite!
