So I missed last week, not purposefully but we’ve been off work this week and I took a little break from everything, including blogging. Added to the fact the bear had hand foot and mouth, things had been a little chaotic for which we’re just catching up!!
I’ve done well on books this week, as we’re off I’ve taken full advantage and indulged. Already done is girl on a train a real page turner which is definitely worth picking up if you’ve not yet done so (though it seems in pretty late to this party!) and Malevolent a easy read detective novel which although pretty graphic in places, a pretty good read.
I’ve just started another – 30 days which so far seems like an easy read but interesting too so not complete junk read! I’ll let you know!
We’ve kept up to date with strictly and the Apprentice which we’re impressed by as committing to a series isn’t easy with the bear! We didn’t want to push it with a 3rd TV series so we’ve picked up a box set on Netflix – Jessica Jones. It’s still early days but so far so good!
We also had a date night day where my parents took the bear as usual and hubby and I went for some lunch and a cinema date to watch Spectre. We went all out and went to an imax showing in luxury seats. Loved the film, proper Bond which is what we wanted but I’m not sure we’ll do imax again. It was expensive and although that’s fine as a treat (first time at the movies together for 18 months is definately a treat!) it was too loud!! Yes I know that makes me sound old but it actually made me flinch in places!!
Worth doing at least once for the experience though.
Our first Christmas tune on the the radio!! That’s when it becomes official!! As we’re off this week we popped out on Tuesday to pick up the Christmas tree which is currently residing in water in the garage until it goes up on Sunday.
However on the way home with the car fully loaded with Norris the tree, driving back home through winding lanes on a cold dark evening, a bit of Buble “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” comes on the radio. Perfect timing!! Made even more perfect by the fact it’s the first song either of us had heard.
Not a lot actually, after the mad rush to get the baby gift set ready for a friend, I’ve taken a bit of a break from crafting. And enjoyed it!!
However this morning brought with it a token wool gift for our anniversary so I’m looking forward to cracking on with this when I get 5 mins!
Nothing of note unfortunately, I fear my wardrobe needs a bit of tlc !
It’s our 7th wedding anniversary today, and we were supposed to be heading into Manchester to watch the Stereophonics. But (there always seems to be a bit with us!) hubby has caught hand foot and mouth from the bear and is suffering, poor thing. Therefore I think it’s a quiet night in for us instead.
However, regardless of how poorly my two bears have been, it’s still been a lovely week off work. With cuddles, smiles, and Christmas cheer. What more could you ask for???
