Five Alive Friday


Happy Friday lovelies!

How good does it feel to have a long weekend on the horizon? Are you going away? I’m staying close to home – I have a date with Elvis, will be giving a few rooms at home a colourful makeover with a new coat of paint and plan on cooking a long lunch for some friends on Monday. Bliss!

I hope you have a happy weekend – in the meantime, here’s a bunch of links to distract, amuse and entertain you…
