Take5 Tuesday!

Needed something to kick start my brain this morning so decided to do this little thing:

1. 5 things you've read recently
  • Wedding magazines
  • A Friend of the Family by Lisa Jewell
  • Lovely cards off my beautiful sister and best friend
  • Trashy Heat magazine
  • Guide to where to seat people at weddings so as not to offend anyone (was not helpful).
2. 5 sites you've signed up for
  • Glad that I have discovered Simon Savidge's blog- very good!
  • Signed up for the newsletter from Marian Keye's website- very excited to hear that she is working on a new book!
  • Have become addicted to this- fuels my trashy celebrity gossip reading addiction.
  • Loved this- some of these photos are very scary whilst others have clearly been photo-shopped
  • Also loving Nicole's blog over at Linus' Blanket- great new look too!
3. 5 TV shows you've watched lately
  • Watched The Great Sperm Race last night and I have a whole new respect for the little blighters- that is one HUGE journey they have to make. Jokes aside, it was a really well made programme; Mr S concurred in his medical student opinion!
  • Am heavily addicted to Gossip Girl, think that I am actually bit old to be watching this but it is so good, Chuck Bass is a true hero!
  • I watched the new Horne and Corden sketch show but was a little disappointed as I really like these two but there are only so many fat man jokes to be made.
  • Enjoyed The Ladies No. 1 Detective Agency on Sunday night, still not a patch on the books but still good, cosy, Sunday night viewing.
  • Old episodes of Black Books- always cheers me up!
4. 5 things that you want right now

  • More sleep
  • More time to write
  • Winning lottery numbers
  • A cleaner
  • A newly decorated bathroom
5. 5 things on your grocery list
  • Kitchen roll- Alfie seems to have forgotten that he should go to the toilet in the garden and not the kitchen
  • Fruit- I am very good at putting it on the list every week and buying it- just need to work on the actually eating it bit.
  • Custard Creams- they are a regular on the list and also on my hips.
  • Fresh Beetroot- these are for Mr S, he eats them as a snack, he is trying to eat 5 fruit and veg a day and put me to shame.
  • Air Freshener- again for Alfie, think he is probably due a bath and a blow-dry!
