Weekly Smile – (3TC #510)

It’s been a lovely week. Lots of smiles to report. Boyfriend’s boy went to see his matrilineal kin for a couple of days before he headed back to sea on Sunday. It was nice to see him home but great to have the weekend to ourselves.

On Film Friday, we welcomed in the Chinese New Year with a takeaway and The Kiss of the Dragon – not exactly romantic but … the irony wasn’t lost on us.

Then, on Saturday, England beat Italy, the weakest of the Rugby Six Nations. It wasn’t a dead cert after England’s appalling performance the previous weekend. When Italy scored a try in the first three minutes of kick off, we had our head in our hands. Phewee!

Oh, and my text turned up for the highly anticipated vaccine jab. I am now duly booked for 12 O’clock on Wednesday. Hurrah!

Then, of course, it was Valentine’s yesterday. We had Roasted Beer-can Chicken and homemade, home-grown raspberry muffins. Nom! Nom! We finished the evening by watching About Time, a quirky little RomCom about a guy who has the ability to relive his past to try things differently until he gets the perfect outcome. His special gift comes in handy in winning the heart of Mary – but the course of true love is never that easy! Tissues were needed. 😭

  1. That Valentine’s dinner sounds good! It reminds me that I’ve been wanting to try that beer can roasted chicken. I rarely get a while chicken though, as I live alone. But I’m determined to try it. Maybe in a day when I’m going to my daughter’s so I can take it to share!

  2. If you like to cook – it is worth the investment as the chicken is very moist cooked this way. Plus you get an awful lot of cuts you can freeze and then of course, chicken soup for the soul. Currently supping our left overs! 😊

  3. Thank you Natalie – It’s feeling a bit bitter sweet at the moment as my Mum (90 years) has had a fall and the family is in a headless chicken position wondering how we can help. I’m sure we will work it out in the morning – it’s just a bit of a shock right now!
