Five Things & Five Blogs I Love Friday : 2015 Edition #4


One.
The snow clouds returned this week like a thick grey blanket over the hills that stretched as far as I could see. Although I did slip over on some ice a few nights ago, which wasn't so nice.

Two. 
Rediscovering old music favourites. Fell In Love With A Girl came on shuffle and an instant dance party ensued. 

Three.
The simple joy in the most mundane things. No substitutions on our online shopping order? Wonderful! The crazy wind not catapulting our wobbly fence panel across into the neighbour's garden again? Phew! The bus arriving on time? Turns out there's a first for everything!

Four. 
Whenever I'm sat at my desk, Ralphie has started pawing at my feet until I pick him up and let him sit on my lap. It's cute until he kicks me letting me know he'd like to get back down again. 

Five.
You Are Not The One by Vestal McIntyre. It's a short story collection full of flawed characters in amusing situations and I adore it!

  2. Aaw Ralphie is so sweet! It seems like most of the snow has now melted here - I can hopefully walk without slipping all over the place! xx

  3. No substitutions on an online shop is definitely worth celebrating - I'm not sure it's ever happened before!

  18. This sounds so wonderful Jennie, I love your five on friday posts. Also, lucky you, snow! (Where do you live?) (in a non-creepy way!). I love snow I've been waiting and waiting for some to arrive but we've just got arctic winds here in London and thick frost at my parents. The anguish of frost which looks like snow ... ugh. xxx
