Have you ever watched a TV series all the way through, from beginning to end, in one go?
I’m talking every season was available to you when you started watching and you just went for it?
That’s what I did every lunchtime for the past 4 months… I went through the entire collection of Gilmore Girls – including the ‘year in the life’ recent addition.
I never had the chance to watch Gilmore Girls originally as it wasn’t shown in the UK. But after months of seeing everyone and their left arm talking about it, I thought I would give it a go.
Now it’s over I feel this sense of loss. Crazy I know! But if I am honest I think it’s probably to do with the end leading to a disruption in my lunchtime routine… which I had down to an art. I hate disruptions but I guess they only show me where I am comfortable, leading me on to the question ‘now change has to happen, what do I want to do’? I feel like once we move in 2 weeks time to another apartment and my routine is displaced again, I will find out.
This disruption will be good. I’m not going to let that nervous niggle of change stop me. So long Gilmore Girls, you were good but now I’m choosing change!
(On another note… what the hell was with that ending? Surely it has to come back…?).
But now time for some Friday Favourites!
Favourite…Moment – Book Sale!
On Saturday David and I went to a charity second hand book sale. I was in reading heaven! Every type of book you could think of, I didn’t know where to start! We spent almost 2 hours looking through them all, reading, laughing, reminiscing (I LOVED the children’s section), so much happiness!
Favourite… Feeling – Sunshine Walk
Sundays are for coffee walks in the sun and now Spring is approaching we are able to do just that. We had a walk down by the river, sun beaming on our faces… it was a lovely calm time.
Favourite… Purchase – Books of course!
I bought a few history books, Christmas books (I adore Christmas and it’s traditions), classics and even a couple of Famous Five books. I will be kept busy for sure.
Favourite… Food/Drink – Nitro Cold Brew from DiMattina
We had to go get our windscreen replaced (boo) so while we waited we went for a wonder to grab a coffee. Holy smokes I did not expect to find the most amazing coffee shop with the best on tap nitro cold brew. It was so smooth with the perfect head on it…. looked exactly like a Guinness – it even had the same velvety texture!

Favourite… Moment of training – Taking ownership
I am tired right now and my body is showing it. The beginning of the week was rough but then, the past two days, I decided to take ownership, back off on certain things and chose when and when not to push. I may still feel tired but my head feels in control and that makes a huge difference.
Weekend Plans – Saturday – Massage (yes!), lunch out and then start to pack. Sunday – Pancakes, newspapers, coffee walk and podcasting!
Have a fab weekend folks!
