As I mentioned on Tuesday I hope you guys didn’t miss me too much last week!
I took a much needed break from writing and decided to rest. In fact I am going to be taking it easy for the next wee while until I am feeling better. Don’t worry, there is nothing major wrong! Unfortunately that very nasty virus I had a few weeks back is just going to take a good while to pass. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
As a result our Easter was very quiet but still very enjoyable. We both got the rest we needed and just enjoyed each others company! It was ideal.
But cracking on with Friday now and this weeks ‘Friday Favourites’!
Favourite… Moment – Going to the cinema twice
Over the Easter weekend we went to the cinema twice and it was so good just to rest and be still. On Good Friday we saw the Lego Batman Movie and it was really good fun with lots of chuckles. On Easter Monday we went to see Beauty and the Beast. I was really dubious about it as a) I love the original and b) I’m not a big Emma Watson fan and couldn’t really see her as Belle. But I loved it! I still don’t think Emma was a great choice for Belle but the other characters were just so wonderful they simply stole the show! A delight to watch.
Favourite… Feeling – Lucky boys and girls
My parents sent David and I some money to pick up a chocolate egg for Easter. So we headed to the fancy chocolatier in town and picked up this beauty. Dark chocolate with salted cashew nut brittle. It’s just perfection!
Favourite… Purchase – New candle lanterns
On Saturday we headed to Fremantle where they were having a festival. The streets were closed and the stores poured out on to the street. As a result we found a little store that was previously hidden to us selling beautiful homewares. We picked up these two lanterns, such a pretty pattern, black on the outside and bright yellow inside. I don’t usual buy many things like this but we saw them and had to have them!
Favourite… Food/Drink – Our Easter Sunday platter
Oh it was a joy to put this together and even more of a joy to eat! Irish blue cheese, aged Gouda and Campanier from France were our 3 cheeses. We devoured the Serrano ham and paired them all with apples, cucumbers, chips, crackers, olives and drizzles of local honey. Bliss!

Favourite… Moment of training – Being there and being present
This week, for the first time in a few weeks, I was just so thankful to be at training, surrounded by people who make me smile and just moving. I didn’t do anything fast or heavy, I just moved. And it felt great!
Weekend Plans – Saturday – My first sports massage, podcasting all afternoon and then meal prep time! Sunday – Pancakes and newspapers, out for coffee, more podcasting and chill!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
