Halloween is nearly here and I'm looking forward to a night out with some of my favourite girls tomorrow. The plan is that there's no real plan. All we've decided is that people are coming to mine to get ready and don some fake blood and costumes, drink some Haribo vodka (which I've brewed myself because I'm that organised), play some games, head into town, see where the night takes us and probably laugh and dance ourselves silly. Those are the best sort of nights I think.
It's been a busy week and it's good to reflect on the things that make us smile so that we can feel grateful and appreciate what we have. Even though it's raining, I'm feeling good. I donned the hood this morning and got on my way to work with a spring in my step. So as the rain hammers down outside, here's a list of the things that have made me smile.
1. I came home from work on Wednesday and my housemates had bought me a present - a balloon version of Max. There had been someone selling them in town, and this balloon honestly was identical to my boy. They bought it just because they knew I'd love it. Max obviously hated it (of course). You may have even spotted the balloon on the episode of The Apprentice that was on the same night!
3. On Monday, I went to see the new Bond film, Spectre with my housemate. Anyone who knows me will know that I love James Bond, and I particularly love Daniel Craig. I'd booked us into the first showing that you could get to in Bournemouth or Poole, grabbed the biggest load of popcorn I could find and settled down to watch the show. I don't think you can compare Spectre with the success of Skyfall as they're two different films, but I absolutely loved it. And seeing Daniel Craig is always going to make me smile.
4. I put up a new cover (finally!). I've been singing a lot of jazz recently in preparation for a concert I'm singing in in December, so decided to sing a bit of Fever by Peggy Lee. It's always lovely to hear people's lovely feedback on my singing so thank you. You can listen to it below:
Have a fabulous Friday!
