Five good things #3

1. Three Girls on BBC One
A three part series focusing on the Rochdale sexual abuse scandal focuses on three girls who were treated horrendously by a large group of middle aged men, the sexual health worker who fought for years to get their stories heard (Maxine Peake is outstanding as Sara) and the police's lack of action when it came to charging the men when the abuse first came to light (They fucked up royally). It's heart breaking but it's a must watch so that we can educate ourselves on how to look for warning signs that young people may be in danger and how to do something about it.

2. Getting a mention in Beverley's newsletter
Imagine my surprise (and excitement) when I opened up last Monday's edition of The Letter B and saw one of my posts in the link love section! I *think* this is the first time one of my blog posts has been shared by another blogger/writer on their platform so not gunna lie, I ws pretty made up (Sign up to The Letter B here or have a nosy at Beverley's blog).

3. Aldi cajun chicken & sweet potato fries
I've been trying to eat healthier lunches whilst at work (by healthier I mean not smothered in cheese) and my current go to is Aldi's cajun chicken with a handful of their sweet potato fries (and a splodge of garlic mayo ofc). It's the perfect non-boring lunch that keeps me going until tea time.

4. Oreo milkshakes at the Pancake House in Pateley Bridge
On Sunday morning Jody and I headed to the Pancake House in Pateley Bridge to sample some - you guessed it - pancakes! I wasn't huge on them to be honest as I don't really do breakfast at the best of times but they were okay I guess. The star of the show however was the Oreo milkshake that I ordered, complete with chocolate sauce to make it look a bit more instagrammable....Delicious.

(PS how tanned are Jody's arms in the photo? I look like a milky bar next to him).

5. The holiday countdown is officially on!
A week tomorrow I will be on route to Las Vegas and I am so excited to walk out of work on Friday knowing that I have SEVENTEEN glorious days off. I can't tell you just how ready I am for a holiday and some pool days are definitely in order.

Happy Monday!
