*We had the living room carpet and sofa cleaned recently. It has given it a new lease of life but sadly made the coffee table look sad so we went out and bought some new furniture. A couple of occasional tables and a sideboard. It will take a few weeks to arrive but it is nice to have something to look forward to. Also means Hubby has the chance to paint the ceiling before it arrives!
*I also bought a new purple dress (that always cheers me up). Will look forward to wearing that soon.
*I finished reading Maze Runner which means I can go and see the movie this week.
*I am going to a Salsa dancing workshop tonight. I haven't done it in a while as our local class closed down so it will be fun to put my dancing shoes back on,
Happy weekend everyone.
Oooo! Salsa! Enjoy your class...it sounds like fun! I so wish I had the health to do something like that. How about you have some extra fun on my behalf? :)ReplyDelete
I will, Katie. Thank you :)Delete
What did you think of The Maze Runner? It felt like Lord of the Flies meets Hunger Games to me. Truthfully, the book just made me angry. All the angst and testosterone...ReplyDelete
It did take me a few chapters to get into the book but I enjoyed it when I did. Have heard good things about the movie.Delete
The movie was excellent. Better than the book if you ask me, but then again, my opinion of the book wasn't all that great.Delete
Hi Suzanne ... well lots going on - new furniture is always good - a change too .. I keep seeing the ads for The Maze in the cinema ... but haven't thought about watching ..ReplyDelete
Sadly not a dancer .. though I'd love to be ... enjoy your class .. cheers Hilary
Even a small change can liven up a room can't it? Thanks for visiting, Hilary.Delete
Enjoy the dancing!ReplyDelete
Isn't that how it always happens? You fix one thing and then realize everything needs fixing.
Indeed - in fact we have ended up painting the whole room this weekend as once you start ...!Delete
Have a great time at your Salsa class tonight, it sounds like fun! New clothes always cheer me up :)ReplyDelete
You've got some wonderful things to celebrate, Suzanne. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
You too, Deanie.Delete
I'd love to know what you think of the Maze Runner! It sounds as if you've been having a really good autumn. I'm looking forward to the Half-term too - I think my whole family is more than ready for it. Enjoy the dancing xxReplyDelete
Hoping to get to see the movie this week but depends how things go! Took me a few chapters to get into the book but once I did I enjoyed the read. Interested to see how it translates to screen.Delete
I have no idea where all the weeks are going, either! Feels like all I did was blink, and bam, October's halfway over. o_OReplyDelete
Glad you have so much awesome stuff to celebrate, though! Hope the Salsa dancing workshop goes well! :)
It was a good night, thanks, Heather.Delete
The weeks are flying by me too. New paint, new furniture, clean furniture, and a book read are all great - but salsa dancing, that sounds like awesome fun!ReplyDelete
It was fun!Delete
Yay for time to write, a purple dress, and salsa dancing lessons! That sounds like fun. I love Latin music. After hearing what happened when you cleaned your carpet and sofa - I'm never cleaning mine!! lolReplyDelete
I know, one job always leads to another!Delete
I've been meaning to read Maze Runner. I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
You too, thanks for the visit :)Delete
Sounds like you had a lot to celebrate! New furniture is always sweet and did I ever mention that purple is my number one favorite color? :)ReplyDelete
Oh, but what I wouldn't do to be able to go salsa dancing again. I have to get my gait as close to where it was and my rhythm coordinated again. Actually, I've regained a lot of the coordination. I need to work more on strength, balance and focus. Little by little, I guess.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day! Eva
Isn't that way, though? Fix one thing in the house and something else needs attention because it's now shabby looking by comparison.ReplyDelete
I haven't seen The Maze Runner yet, but loved the book.
Love Salsa - have you ever done Rueda? Our folk dance group is really into it now.ReplyDelete
I've only done Salsa once, but it's a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it. :-)ReplyDelete
