Thursday Favourites 9

Here is where I share five things that  have made me smile or that I have enjoyed over the past seven days. 🙂
My Thursday Favourites.

Shetland ~ TV Series

An atmospheric scandi influenced but still homegrown crime drama, returned to our screens this tuesday eve. Loving it so far. Well worth a watch ~ not only for the rugged and remote Shetland scenery.

A Preston Poodle Wins Crufts.

This rather regal looking Standard Poodle has become the 2014 Crufts champion. And deservedly so!  I smiled when in an interview his owner confessed that ‘Ricky’s ‘ favourite pass times included sleeping on his owners bed and routeing in the bin. Just like any other dog then. 🙂

The Great British Farm Project Charity Auction.

My friends Tracy and Stephen run a farm animal rescue charity near Settle in Yorkshire called The Great British Farm Project. At the moment they have a lovely charity auction going ahead on their facebook page ( see link above) to raise money for the animals. Kind people are donating bits and bobs for the auction. ( I shall have to donate a tea cup candle! ).And I have my eye on these pretty vintage china brooches. Go check it out. 🙂

Are these not beautiful......

Team GB Winter Paralympics.

Enjoying the Winter Olympics on TV. Thoroughly amazed by the blind skiing. How do they do it! Well done to Team GB. 🙂 Below are Kelly Gallagher and her guide Charlotte Evans who won Britains first ever Gold on the slopes.

  1. Shetland was fab wasn’t it! Although I did watch it partly just for Douglas Hensall (I used to have a thing for him back in the late 90s when he was in Channel 4’s ‘Psychos’) 🙂 x
