Five Good Things #7

the bull inn, west canfield

Happy Monday and welcome to yet another instalment of five good things. I struggled to come up with a list this week as I've been doing a lot of overtime at work but I got there in the end. 

1. A cheeky Monday off
I rocked up to work last Monday only to be informed that someone had driven into the BT box outside and all the power was going to be turned off so they could repair it...Meaning we were all getting sent home. I ended up going for a pub lunch with the girls as it was a b-e-a-utiful day and dare I say it, I've even got a bit of a tan.

2. Milka chocolate bars
Milka bars are 50p in Morrisons at the moment and it's dangerous. It's creamy, smooth and tastes delicious - A very underrated chocolate bar.

3. Having a puppy in the office
My work place is pretty chill so when one of the lads asked if he could bring his puppy Cooper in whilst he crate trains him the managers were really cool about it. He is absolutely bloody gorgeous - He's so so soft and he always comes over to say hello on a morning the lil cutie.

4. The Handmaid's Tale on C4
Jesus Christ this programme is deep. If you don't know what it's about it's based on the 1985 novel of the same name by Margaret Atwood. It tells the story of Offred, a handmaid living in a dystopian society where women are property of the state and many are infertile - The handmaid's are basically walking talking wombs for the rich people who can't have kids. It's really dark and Elizabeth Moss is bloody fantastic in it.

5. A successful NVQ meeting
I've finished my level 3 NVQ in Business Administration after one year of study and now it's onto the next one - a level 3 course in Learning and development. This is basically an assessors qualification and it would mean I would be able to teach any courses that I've done previously. It sounds really interesting and it's definitely a step in the right direction when it comes to where I want to go next with my career path.

And that's it! Have a lovely week!



  1. I don't know where I'll end up working in my life but now I totally dream it would be an office that allows puppies as well. Haha I love these types of posts, so nice to read!
    Have a great week <3

    1. Having a puppy in the office is great like, it lifts everyones spirits instantly! He's so full of character too. Thank you for commenting xx

  2. Sounds like a great week :) I am HOOKED on The Handmaid's Tale! Couldn't cope with waiting for it weekly (SLASH all the bloody adverts on 40D!) so managed to find the whole series online, think I've got about 2 more eps to go. Who is your favourite character? I love Offred but Moira is BRILLIANT. xx

    1. It's fantastic isn't it, I'm only on episode three as I find it a little bit heavy for a binge watch but I LOVE the way it's filmed. I don't really have a favourite yet but all the female leads are bloody brilliant!
