A list of five things i have enjoyed and /or appreciated in the last seven days. My Thursday Favourites.
Watched this entertaining biopic about the intense rivalry between two of Formula One’s greats ~ Niki Lauda and James Hunt ,over the wknd. In the days when racing was only frequented by ‘rebels, lunatics and dreamers’ ( Lauda’s words at the start of the movie) , the 1976 championships were cursed with horrific accidents and contraversy. Lauda’s methodical approach and Hunts colourful lifestyle make for a fantastic film. Starring Chris Hemsworth ( Thor) and Daniel Bruhl ( Inglorious basterds).
Land of Ice and Fire.
Finally booked a trip to Iceland ! For years and years I have wanted to visit this land of geysers and hotsprings and volcano’s. To say i’m excited about it is an understatement :)). How will I manage to wait until October! Got a really good deal through keeping an eye on Travel Zoo .
A cup of Chai.
A work collegue told me how much she had enjoyed a tasty chai latte ~ so as i’ve never even tried a chai anything ( Whaaat!) I thought I should give it a go. Yesterday I enjoyed a lovely cup of Tweedle Dum’s and Tweedle Tea at Callooh Callay , my favourite tea rooms in my home town of Clitheroe. Chai is traditionally an Indian tea infused with spices such as cinnamon and cardamom. I enjoyed it very much ~ even more so with a generous helping of Plum and almond cake. 🙂
I finally started making a few candles in teacups this week. I’ve been a bit lazy since Christmas with the whole candle making thing. But I think these brightly coloured ones look vibrant and pretty ~ so i’m on a mission to make more!
Sunshine On Leith.
And finally on Tues eve I went to a Ladies Film night at The Grand venue in Clitheroe with the girls. We got to eat a delicious scottish themed meal of Scotch Broth for starters and Raspberry Cranachan for dessert and then we tapped our feet along to the Proclaimers songs in this feel good film set in Edinburgh. Strange that an entertaining and heartwarming movie can be made around a back catalogue of Proclaimers hits
… but it really can. 🙂
Have you seen any good films recently?
