Hope you are fine and dandy this Thursday! The week is going by fast – but I think that’s what happens when you have Monday off work… still can’t wait for Friday though!
Today it’s time for some more random blogger-ness with ‘Thinking Out Loud’ – linking up with the awesome Amanda over @Runningwithspoons!
Let’s get the party started!
This was one of my birthday presents from David – a jump rope, specific for CrossFit and doing double unders (and made for tall people!). Double unders are not my friend – still yet to master one and I get so frustrated (especially seen as I can skip so well)! But with having my own ropes that I can alter to be the perfect size etc should help me, also it means I can practice… not easy when you don’t have a garden but I will find somewhere! Love that David did so much research into finding me the perfect pair – bring on the DU’s!
2) Comfort Watching
Sometimes we are tired. Sometimes we want to ‘flop’ on the sofa and watch some TV that doesn’t require our brains being in gear. When we are like this, what do we turn to? Comfort programming – by that I mean the classics, something that fills us with nostalgia, something that makes us feel at home, makes us smile and laugh.
I needed some comfort watching last night – and what did I put on… The Simpsons, followed by Sabrina the Teenage Witch! Both remind me of my teen years – being at home and watching them with my brother. Neither disappointed, both were fantastic. Everyone needs a bit of comfort watching now and again!
This book should be re-titled ‘Reasons that Jen would like a pug’! I love it!
I would love a pug so much, they just have their own wee personality traits that make them so special!
Let me quote from the book (another birthday present from David <3 ) … “ Never play ‘fetch’ – this evinces lack of proper manners and is better left to creatures of a lower social standing such as Labradors and humans”. Seems fair to me!
4) Oh my goodness…
Apparently, Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino are really keen do reunite to do ‘Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion 2’ – oh I hope they do! Does anyone else remember how amazing that film was! I used to watch it over and over, I loved it! Although it makes me feel old when I heard the original was released 17 YEARS AGO!!! Geez!
5) Let’s not get political…
Should bloggers talk about politics? I mean here in the HLB sector, you read people commenting on all aspects of their lives but rarely about anything political. I’m not talking about going as far as detailing your political allegiances but simply on political matters – should we comment? The government’s stance on daily food recommendations or the laws on farming practices for example are issues that I know some of us out there feel so passionate about but is it too in depth for a personal blog? Would anyone want to read opinions? Just putting it out there – I am undecided…
6) Commonwealth Games
As you guys know, the Commonwealth Games are currently in full flow here in Glasgow, but alas it comes to an end on Sunday! However, the past week and a half have been incredible and the city has put on such a good show! Everyone is talking about how amazing it has been, visitors love the city and the sun has shone, showing the city in all its glory! I feel so lucky to be living amongst it all, feeling all the good vibes it has brought.
Let’s hope the legacy it leaves means that more kids and adults get into sport and find out how amazing it can be. You don’t have to be a professional, you just have to have the desire to try your best and have fun!
Tomorrow is David and I’s wedding anniversary – 5 years!!
So many amazing and incredible things have happened in the past 5 years and I feel so lucky to be married to my best friend. To celebrate we are going out to a restaurant for dinner that we have wanted to try for a while that highlights local seasonal produce – with maybe a wee glass of bubbles before we head out. Photos will follow I promise 🙂
Ending there on a rather special one I think!
Head on over to RunningwithSpoons for some more random thoughts!

Would you talk about political matters on your blog?
Do you celebrate anniversaries?
