♥ This Week's Loves ♥


1. This week my littlest niece turned 1! They had a big family get-together to celebrate and just look at that cake!

2. IT. "But which one?" you may ask, and I will tell you (pretty much spoiler-free I think). I'm a big fan of the original, having watched it on the telly in my youth, and being scared sh*tless because I was just a kid. Having watched both versions recently I can say that I do like the new one but the original has the edge for me. The new Pennywise is a slivery mess with too many teeth and I couldn't understand what he was on about at times, whereas Tim Curry's version was actually a bit endearing with his baggy suit, cute smile and child-like antics. I'd probably go and get a balloon off him, if he offered me one, and that's the whole point isn't it? The new film leaves less to the imagination and is a bit over-the-top to start with, like Richie's jokes, but after a while the Loser's Club has that same feel to it and some of the changes they've made make sense. It'll be interesting to see who they cast as the adults in the second part and what changes they've made to that.

3. We have been passing illness after illness within our little family since early-December, so it felt really good to get outdoors for the first time this year. Unfortunately the next day I had a whopper of a cold, then so did Sorsha, and so the cycle continues.

4. Despite our disease and the cupboards bursting with chocolate I've really been enjoying some healthy food. I'm getting into avocados which is quite new for me!

5. We watched Colossal a few days ago and really liked it! It's such a different story and although it's an action/comedy/sci-fi film it's a great balance.

6. I've been feeling sorry for myself with this latest cold (which I swear is the worst cold I've ever had...probably) that I sought comfort in some Tunnock's Tea Cakes. Sometimes you just need to treat yo'self, even though you've just mentioned healthy eating in the same post. Meh.

How's your week been?
