Redhead Rambles #5

Hello everyone and welcome to ‘Redhead Rambles’. The series does what it says on the tin, it is a redhead (me) rambling about her week. I share what I’ve been up to each week, how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been listening to or watching. Occasionally I will my share favourite blog posts and links I’ve found useful or interesting.

  • I got to go and see a bunch of kittens 20 minutes out of town but decided none of them were right for me.
  • My boyfriend and I went to the cinema to see The Post last Friday and afterwards we got Dominos.
  • I had my first Saturday off from work in a while and it was mum’s birthday.
  • Dannii shared a tonne of lovely bits she picked up in her New York Haul.
  • I worked my first Sunday at the new library building. We were closed this week for the move but everyone was busy getting books onto shelves and getting everything into place.
  • Monday was Auckland Anniversary day so I got the day off work.
  • I filmed and uploaded my second YouTube video; What I Got For My Birthday. Click here to watch.
  • Mum was contacted by the Birman cat breeder we got Tango from and she had kittens available. We bought a little sealpoint girl (the same colouring as Tango) on Wednesday.
  • The kitten was flown to us and arrived at the airport on Thursday afternoon. We haven’t decided on a name yet. We have a list but want to make sure we pick the right one.
  • I finished the London jigsaw puzzle!
  • The weather has been a real mixed bag: scorching sun, cloud, rain and fog.
  • I have had a makeup free week (except for Monday when I filmed the YouTube video) due to the library move and construction work. There have also been a fair few trips up and down stairs.
  • Shania Twain announced New Zealand tour dates and I want to go!

What I’ve been listening to:

Lawson – Perspective – Since lead singer of Lawson, Andy Brown premiered his solo single Talk of the Town I have been on a real Lawson buzz. I have always admired Andy’s voice and songwriting ability.

Justin Timberlake – I’m not a JT fan but there’s been some hype around his new music so I wanted to take a listen. Not my thing.

How was your week?

    How did you like The Post? I’m not sure I want to pay money to see it in the theater or just wait until it comes on the movie channel. We’re thinking of seeing The Shape of Water. We’re trying to watch ore of the Oscar nominated movies. We saw Three Billboards in Outside Ebbing Missouri recently and it is SUCH a great movie! I highly recommend.

    Oh wow, how exciting you got a new kitten! I can’t wait to see her and find out her name!
    And congrats on finishing the jigsaw puzzle. 😀

      The Post was ok, it was above average but I thought the plot would also focus a little more on the conspiracy side rather than the newspaper politics side. I’m not sure how much movie tickets are in Canada compared to NZ but $10 to see a film isn’t bad. Maybe wait until it’s finished at the theatre.

      I will look up that movie, the title sounds intriguing!

      We knew we wanted another companion and although she will look similar to Tango and she’s the same breed the personality will be different.

      I’ve got some Parisian/boutique-y puzzles lined up next 🙂

    It sounds like you had a fantastic week, Chanelle! 😀 There’s nothing better than a make-up free week. It’s oddly freeing.
    And congratulations on starting a YouTube channel! I am on my way over there right now to watch your video. 🙂 xx
