My favourite things

Every Friday I will be posting a short list of my favourite things from that week.

Here are this week’s favourite things:

1. Downton Abbey

Downton Abbey
Downton Abbey

I missed the boat on Downton Abbey really. I completely missed the first series somehow (I was probably playing LA Noire) and in the end I only started watching it when the Season 1 and 2 blu ray was one of Amazon’s lightning deals last Christmas.

Well I started watching it and couldn’t stop! Season 3 is the first season I’ve watched as it’s been broadcast and whilst it’s not been the best, I’m really enjoying settling in on a Sunday night ready for the show.

For anyone watching the show, the Guardian episode by episode blog (recommended by my friend Lee) is quite a funny read

2. Name that film

Currently obsessed with a couple of Empire Online quizzes including:

Name the film by one letter from the logo

I currently only have 4! Shameful.

Why not give it a go and post your score in the comments below?

3.  Chai Latte’s

Ever since I discovered that these aren’t actually coffee (DOH!) I’ve been addicted. I can’t get enough.

I’m working my way around all the coffee shops in Beeston and Nottingham sampling their chai latte’s (there is probably a blog post in that!)

My current favourite is at The Bean in Beeston.

4. My new HP mug

My amazing and HUGE (I nearly had to put a second teabag in!) new Harry Potter Marauder’s Map mug from the Harry Potter Studio Tour. This is just about enough tea for me… almost.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good

5. Frasier


In the last few weeks I’ve been introducing my boyfriend to Frasier. He missed out on the Friday night channel 4 comedy marathons of my teen years. Needless to say he’s loving it. Niles is the best.

6. LOL of the Week

VerityW on Twitter posted this brilliant picture of Paul ‘Great British Bake Off’ Hollywood and James Martin from an issue of Good Food magazine in 2000. LOLZ!

    1. I KNOW! It’s crazy! Gives me an excuse to watch it again anyway. Great episode last night – the one where Niles thinks Maris is having an affair with her Bavarian fencing instructor. x PS. Yes definitely chai latte date. The Bean’s is great. Malt Cross is good too.
