12/31 A Guilty Pleasure

Today's prompt is a guilty pleasure, this again is hard work only choosing one! So here's my guilty pleasure list ...ooooops!
First and foremost is a cheeky cupcake, I can't resist a cheeky cupcake, nomnomnom! That's the reason I had this tattoo, it symbolises my love for sweet things but also my weight loss, I started the journey about the same time as having this done...
I love chinese take away. Mmmm! I love Costa Black Forest Hot Chocolate. I love lil naps on the sofa, sometimes they turn from minutes into hours! Ooooops! I read loads of blogs in my spare time. I love American sweets & breakfast cereal too! I'd much rather have sweets/candies than chocolate. I often wear pj's straight after work.
As you can see I'm very naughty! haha!

11/31 5 Favourite Films

Finding only five films I love is very tricky, my movie taste is as varied as my music taste! I love allsorts... however, I'm not a fan of sci-fi or horror!

Top Five {in no particular order}

One // Mary Poppins
 Two // The Fast & the Furious films  {I love a bit of Vin Diesel}
 Three // The Lion King 
Four // The Transporter
Five // The Heat 

This is without the classics such as Dirty Dancing, Pretty Woman, Mamma Mia, Grease, my movie list is endless. Nothing beats a movie/duvet day! I love a thriller or a singalong.

The start of the week was bleurgh! I'll spare you all the details but we had a tummy bug!

We broke up from school, Cal said "Goodbye" to lots of friends as he starts a new school in September! He came home with a signed shirt and lots of photos. Cal has always hated not having his Birthday in school time but we celebrated in style!
His cake was yummy!
Homemade is always the best! We drove to Bournemouth & had a gr8 few days starting with the discovery of a new ice cream shop!
We had a face time cake blowing ceremony hahahaha!
We had a dip in the sea!
Then Cal wanted to visit the Tank museum for his birthday treat!
He loved it!
We had a laugh but it was soooooooooooooo boring! {Not my cuppa tea anyway!} We played hide and seek! hahaha!
Dressing up was definitely a hit! hahaha! Roll on the summer holiday adventures!
