Five Things That Made Me Smile This Week #44
Okay, so where did October go? Has anyone seen it? I swear it was the quickest month of the year so far! With Bonfire Night upon us, it’s time to reflect back on the good things this week had in store for me.
1) Halloween festivities
In case you’d forgotten it was Halloween, walking into my work on Tuesday would’ve reminded you instantly. The place was covered in spooky decorations with bowls of candy everywhere. While I tried to resist, it would’ve been rude not to take SOME munchies…
2) Seeing Thor: Ragnarok
I cannot recommend this film enough. With Taika Waititi at the helm (if you haven’t seen What We Do in the Shadows, get on it immediately) it was clear this addition to the Marvel universe was going to be different. But, I didn’t anticipate just how hilarious it was going to be. Sure, it sticks out like a sore thumb in relation to the previous Thor films, but let’s face it, that’s no bad thing. Even if you’re not a fan of Marvel movies, I’d recommend giving this one a watch.
3) A little care package
Wednesday was National Stress Awareness Day. To highlight the cause and give us a little TLC, my work handed out small gift bags with stress busters inside. It included a face mask, chocolate, lavender oil, a stress ball, colouring in supplies and the ultimate de-stresser, bubbles! It’s pretty much impossible to feel stressed when blowing bubbles… It was a lovely little surprise that definitely put a smile on my face.
4) Mobsters & Lobsters party
My lovely friend hosted a belated Halloween party on Saturday that was Mobsters & Lobsters themed. What do they have in common? They rhyme, d’uh. I opted to go as a female gangster with hat, pinstripe trousers, braces and all. My lobster costume was in the wash… There was an impressive array of crustacean-inspired costumes, though, and a fair few mobsters to boot. It was fun to get dressed up for a change, which I rarely ever do.
5) Watching Stranger Things 2
How did I spend my Sunday, I hear you cry? By watching the entire second season of Stranger Things 2. That’s about nine hours back to back… and I don’t regret a thing. It was definitely worth the hype and I understand why everyone has been obsessed with it. I kind of want to watch the whole thing from the start again, just to fall in love with the characters all over again.
Until next time,
