5 Good Things

There's been a bit of a lull on this here blog, and to be honest I'm a bit surprised I'm even typing this now - what with the UK in turmoil, the Conservatives falling apart and some needless infighting in the Labour party too - but then, surely now is the time to need to look on some good things happening at the moment? So, stick with me while I share 5 good things that have happened (to me) recently. 

1 - I managed to use the 'but I'm pregnant!' card in order to secure Pete the Pony. You may remember Pete from my Third Trimester wish list, and in the middle of the month we went to a Mothercare Expecting Mothers event which gave you a voucher for 10% off whatever you bought on the night. There was a goose version (called Gladys if you're wondering) which had £10 off - but I pouted until Joe relented and let me buy the slightly more expensive pony sit me up baby cosy thing. 

2 - Dylan and I went to Bristol on Saturday to see his uncle and aunty, and to meet their cat Doris. Although initially a bit weary of Dylan, they soon became best buds and Dylan was pretty delighted when Doris would bat a pingpong ball across the room. We were hoping to have a nice picnic, but the weather's been pretty crap down in Somerset recently so we stayed indoors. Still - picnic or no picnic, we had mini sausage rolls, freshly baked bread and a muffin to top it all off! 

3 - We saw Daniel Kitson and had dinner at Pizza Workshop in Bristol on Tuesday. Might as well move to Bristol the amount of times I've been there in the past week, but it was suuuuch a good evening. Joe picked me up after work, so I didn't have to get the bus home - bonus, and we drove off in search of somewhere nice to eat. Pizza Workshop came highly recommended and did not disappoint at all! Joe had seen Daniel Kitson before, but I hadn't, so I wasn't sure what to expect but I honestly haven't laughed so much in ages. If you have a chance to see him, I'd say go for it! 

Vanilla cheesecake, Pimms jelly and clotted cream ice cream from Clavelshay Barn
4 - I went out for Sunday lunch, which is something we never do, and had the most amazing meal. We went to Clavelshay Barn, which is a local hidden gem, and I'm hoping to review it on here soon! 

5 - It hasn't happen yet, but my dad is going to visit this weekend! Dylan's really excited as he's coming down in his motorhome and we're going to stay in it overnight - I'm less excited about that bit,  I won't lie! I'm hoping the weather will be nice and we'll get to venture out and explore the local area a bit more. 

C'mon, share the good stuff! Anything nice happen to you lately?
