Monday kicked this week off with me feeling a little under the weather, some mid Autumn cold has grasped me and I felt super grim. To try and spread some fun in to the day I was treated to tea at the Philharmonic dining rooms, which I might add serve the best fish and chips ever. Afterwards, the boy and I had quick walk around the Metropolitan cathedral grounds, crunching the leaves under foot and fighting back the sniffles. 

After a solid news day on Tuesday and me taking the stand as acting news editor, Wednesday saw Christmas come early as I headed to the Metquarter for their 'Objects of desire' Christmas press day. The space was kitted out with a large Santa sleigh, twinkly Christmas tree, tasty Carluccio's canapes and glasses of Prosecco. The afternoon really set the mood for the festive season, I am super excited as after the shambles of Christmas last year this year is going to be mega I can feel it.

Saturday morning the fella and I headed for brunch at Bill's, I had Eggs Florentine and it was the nicest breakfast I have ever eaten. 

This weekend I have been sticking to some traditions that have happened in October for the last 20 years of my life, firstly last night was a trip to Blackpool, my family and I have been visiting the illuminations for years and despite my parents not being able to join me this year I couldn't miss out! I love the dark, inky sky, chilly sea breeze and the vivid, neon lights it's comforting.
We would usually take a packed lunch and eat it in the car under Blackpool tower, this year my friend and I were armed with a flask of coffee and caved in to fish and chips and donuts.

Today I am having a Halloween themed evening, carving pumpkins and making pumpkin soup.
I love the time around Halloween, so lots of candles will be lit and a few spooky tunes playing - Monster mash anyone?
