Friday Favourites + Episode 40 of the Chase the Red Grape Podcast

Hi all,

How has your week been?Friday - chase the red grape

Mine has been one tough cookie. Nothing big or annoying happened, it just rained a lot and I felt a bit pants. Hopefully I’m not coming down with something.

But enough of being on a downer. I can tell you what was one of the highlights of my week – meeting this little lady over Skype.

My Mum fosters guide dog puppies when their trainers need a break or go on holiday (so she can, therefore, continue their training). As a result I end up having many awesome skype dates with my beautiful mum and some adorable poochies!chase the red grape podcast

This is Kiki. She is a year old, loves mud and eating slippers. Look at those ears!

And on that note let’s kick off Friday Favourites!

Favourite… Moment – Bed time

Yup my favourite moment this week has been bed time. No shame in that. Lights out by 9pm always in order to achieve my needed 8 hours!

Favourite… Feeling – Satisfaction from my puzzlepuzzle - chase the red grape

Nope we haven’t finished it yet… this puzzle (no shame) is going to cost me to lose many hairs. But we did finish the outer rim which brought much satisfaction considering how hard it is going to be! (Note, David picked this puzzle… not me…)

Favourite… Purchase – The perfect flat white…coffee - chase the red grape

Yes I like coffee, you all know that. But I adore the flavours and textures of coffee so so much. Enter this beauty from Wednesday. A 2 shot flat white gives the perfect milk to coffee ratio. I literally savoured every sip!

Favourite… Food/Drink – Roll’dRolld - chase the red grape

Roll’d is a Vietnamese food chain here in Perth and it’s bloody brilliant. It never disappoints me whether I’m in the mood for pho or this tasty Vietnamese salad I had above. Love me some crunchy veg and pork!

Favourite… Moment of training – I survived…

I guess that says it all! Ha! It wasn’t all bad… just maybe not what I was expecting (or hoping) from deload week.

Weekend Plans – Saturday – Heading to get our windscreen replaced (damn chip), podcasting in between food prep and then out for drinks for a friends birthday. Sunday – Pancakes and papers, a walk with coffee and chill.

Have a fab weekend everyone!

Would you have a dog if you could?

How do you know when you are coming down with a bug/cold/flu?

Do you enjoy a puzzle?

    On weeks where things feel cold and poopy, thank GOD for a well made flat white. Those little moments of bliss can go a lonnnnnnggg long way.

    I don’t think I would start a 1000 piece puzzle if someone paid me. My level of patience and frustration would match my reactions to board games. Or mini golf. …..It would not be pretty. For anyone involved.

    I hope this next week feels a little more vibrant for you and you feel some of that Jen spark again. And if not, keep those blanket and flat whites at the ready.

      Week has begun with coffee and blankets…. but the sun is coming out so that is brining all kinds of smiles with it!
      I may regret the decision of the puzzle… and I will probably hate crayons by the end of it!

    • Jen says:

      I think the reason why she can hand all the dogs back is because she knows they are going to become guide dogs for the blind – such an important job… even if she does fall in love with every pair of puppy eyes she meets!
      And I wish you were here to join me on this puzzle… it’s going to be a doozie! :-/
