    Gin, Embroidered Shirts and Pupper visits. #LittleLoves 12/52

    I have had such a calm, quiet week. It's been weird but wonderful. I haven't had any agency work, which has been a welcome break. I know I'm doing a lot of hours next week, so that'll keep the money coming in. I've spent the week catching up on housework, tying up loose ends and sleeping. And planning Amsterdam! We're off in less than a month and I'm really, really excited. Is it just me, or is one of the best parts of the holiday planning it before you go?

    So I finished both Girl on the Train and am halfway through the essays in Men Explain Things To Me. Both are excellent books, though very different. Everyone raved about Girl on the Train and whilst I do think it's good, I will say that it's slightly predictable. I adore a good thriller novel so I was very pleased when Gone Girl turned up and put female-written thrillers in the spotlight. Still worth a read if you get a chance.

    Netflix's new section is killing it right now. They've just put up both The Second Best Marigold Hotel and Sixteen Candles. Both excellent films. I adore me some Dev Patel, although the first one is slightly better. Because that's the rule isn't it? Sequels are never better. Except Toy Story.

    I'm still not sick of Ed Sheeran, though I'm sure I will be soon, so there's nothing much to report here.

    I've had a very calm week of just pottering around and I haven't made much at all. Except the odd gin, tonic and elderflower. Something I've recently become obsessed with. I was given a very large bottle of gin from my last job as a leaving present, which is always a welcome present in the Chastney-Smith house.

    If you saw my last post you'd have seen my fantastic denim shirt that my mum picked up for me in the M&S sale (thank you, mama Smith). The embroidery trend is beautiful and I'm so glad to have a little slice of the action.

    We had a weekend of absolutely nothing, which is just what the doctor ordered. We were in charge of a certain Mr Harry Pupper all weekend, so spent most of the time going between walking the pup in the rain and snuggling up on the sofa with him. He's genuinely the most cuddly dog I've ever met. He just really likes to fall asleep curled up with someone. Which sounds like a lot of people I know. He's never slept over at our house before, but he was pretty good. Cried for ten minutes the first night but he went down very peacefully on the second. He looked disappointed when mum and dad came to pick him up, or at least that's what I'm telling myself. The house felt very quiet after he went.
    I also picked up one of the Aldi candles that everyone's raving about, I can highly recommend it! Definitely worth a trip and the £3.99 it costs.
