Now some of you might not like this blog of mine today as I'm one of those people who waits right till the end of an eBay bid and then I bid. Yes when you're counting down the last seconds of your bid you might have been gazumped by me...I'm sorry! Sort of :-)

I should blame my Dad for this Music Monday choice as he seems to take a lot of the blame for my earlier music influences and this is no different. Although I admit over the years I've still listened to The Hollies and can't say it will change in the future too.

I realised looking back at my previous Weekly Loves blogs and I had pretty much always started with a picture of food! So this week I decided to go down the healthy route, this is one of my 3 mixed salad hanging baskets that hang right by my kitchen door. I also have two rocket leaf buckets too as I'm having salad with everything at the moment as it's the only thing that's growing in my garden! I need to get sowing some new seeds for salad leaves in case I run out! See I can be healthy as well as eat all the chocolates and cakes :-)

One of my friend's has just started decorating her new little cafe shop. I've watched and listened over the last few years as her dreams unfolded and developed. I think she had always wanted her own business and she just had no idea what it would be. I admit I'm a little jealous...

I love gossip even though I'll admit you'll probably never see me read a gossip magazine (OK, Hello, Heat etc) in public but I might read as many as I can whilst waiting for the dentist or doctor. But I was hooked on Gossip Girl from the very first episode and I've never been ashamed to admit I'm addicted to it.

More food pics :-) The blurred writing on the right said "PORTION CONTROLLED" Haha! Who are they kidding! ;-)
So then Manchester United won the league...woohoo! That's a record breaking nineteen! Ok I'll shh now... I think this week for me could be summed up in just a few points;

This month's review is of Acorelle Fragrance Eau De Parfum Amber Vanilla - Stimulating. So yes in short this is a vanilla perfume which is said to stimulate through aromatherapy. Now vanilla is one of my favourite smells and I'm known to be a particular hoarder of ANY vanilla candles I find.

I can natter away at the best of times and yet there was one phonecall that was making me really nervous, like butterflies in my stomach nervous. I'd not felt this way since having to ring up boys for dates in my teens. This was bordering on stupid for this 30 year old. This wasn't a boyfriend this was a friend who I really cared about yet have never met or even spoken to.

I've mentioned a few times how much I like gaming (gaming not gambling!). I have a bit of a Settlers obsession but it's never for a constant daily, weekly or even monthly stretch. I'll suddenly just get the need to play it and I will. The computer version is my most played game and I have been known to play it at all hours and even have it playing in the background when I'm messing on the computer with Facebook, twitter etc.

You may not have heard of them just yet but Young the Giant are set to be big. Really big. This American rock band formed in California were originally called The Jakes. Their debut album has received some solid reviews and the band have spent the last year plus touring. In fact they must like touring so much that just as they were getting to the end of their scheduled dates they added more.

So where has all that sunshine that April gave us gone? That said most of my plants are currently growing at a quick rate, my courgette, peppers and tomatoes and well on their way. I've got the lovely job of cleaning out our water butt of leaves this weekend. How rock n roll is that?

Jamie Redknapp modelling for M&S
After an unsuccessful attempt to try to restore our garden furniture, our table had warped due to the harsh winter and I had previously decided against better judgement to buy a bigger table but it could not be stored away easily. Yes I know, think smaller and then store it away in the Winter.

With my wide range of music collection I should admit that one of my big collections is movie soundtracks, actually it could be my favourite genre. So Duran Duran feature highly as I love "A View to a Kill" and also being a James Bond fan too it's double the win. Although it's by no means the best Bond theme or film!

Well no as you know from here I'm not 26 but yesterday in a way to try to rid myself of a hangover and keep the nerves away for the football I decided to do a bit of brain training. I was surprised to see my age was 26 after previously blogging about it being 44

Birthday cake - Colin the caterpillar cake from M&S. My favourite cake in the whole world. Fact
Birthdays are fun aren't they? I love birthdays and not just my own but when my own comes around I get so excited and love it all. My birthday has become a week of celebrating and doing various things that were a great surprise! I have a love/hate relationship with surprises but these were all a thumbs up! :-)

I'm far from an angel myself and this is probably one of the reasons I enjoyed this TV series so much. The programme centres around four nurses; Kate, Lia, Anji and Beth and the hospital they work in and the men that come and go.
