Sunday Spotlight - 17th November 2013

This week, I’ve been loving…


The first pet I ever had was a hamster, called Ginger, when I was about 8. Since then I don ‘t think we’ve ever been without a pet – a few more hamsters, then some guinea-pigs and then we got my lovely cat, Jaffa, who is now 9. A few years after bringing Jaffa home, my Dad finally gave in and we got our gorgeous Golden Retriever, Alfie. He’s 4 years old now, but a couple of years ago my brother also brought home the tiniest hand-reared kitten, who we called Xena. It’s amazing how quickly they become part of the family and I find when I’m not feeling too good they seem to pick up on it and come and sit with me. It’s great having something to cuddle day or night :)

Christmas Adverts

The Christmas adverts are out in full force now and you can’t turn the TV on without seeing one. Some are rather tacky and annoying, but there are a few which have been making me feel all warm and fuzzy! I think one of my favourites is the Sainsbury’s advert, Christmas in a Day , where people from around the country have filmed how they spend the Christmas period.

There’s also the John Lewis advert, in which Lily Allen covers a Keane song. It’s a cute advert and I do love the song, but I don’t think it’s the best Christmas advert John Lewis have done.

The final Christmas advert that has stood out for me is for Marks and Spencer, which has an Alice in Wonderland feel to it. The advert all feels very magical and I particularly love the little Westie!

Percy Pig Porridge

It’s that time of year again when I get out the porridge to warm me up at breakfast time. I tend to stick to either Readybrek or Quaker Oats So Simple if I’m having porridge, but this week my Mum brought me a little present home from her shopping trip – Percy Pig Porridge from Marks and Spencer. I’m a bit of a Percy Pig fan, so was quite excited to try it, and I wasn’t disappointed. You get yummy fruit flavoured porridge, and guess what….it’s pink!

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
