Well here we are having done our first week of December! Is anyone else feeling slightly panicky that Christmas is coming closer and closer?! I thought I had been fairly organised but as I watch my diary fill up and realise that the times when I can actually go out and finish shopping or write Christmas cards or wrap presents is actually getting squeezed into a very small time frame it does make me feel a bit wobbly.
This is my favourite time of year though without a doubt; panicky feeling or no!
I have really not done much reading this week at all. I did get chance to pop over and read some of my favourite blogs such as Clarina’s Contemplations but that was usually whilst I was sat in the car waiting for school pick up or quickly in between errands. I am still going with Inkheart too which I am really enjoying, I just haven’t had as much spare time to delve into it this week.
Anyone who has read any of my Little Loves posts will know that I do love a good box set and I was really pleased to see that Sky had brought back the Scandal one, especially with the new series about to start. I am whizzing my way through as quickly as I can. I also noticed that they have released Private Practice which I love; it’s a much chirpier version of Grey’s Anatomy so I have downloaded the last few box sets of that as well. I am probably going to have to binge watch my way through most of them but I’m okay with that; when James is a music practice or football I can usually watch 2 or 3 episodes at a time.
My wardrobe this week has been totally uninspired. It has rained almost every day (the joy of living on the coast in the North West apparently) so my attire has been any pair of trousers which isn’t soaked through and James’ raincoat as it is bigger than mine!
Amazing things about Meg and Eli at parents evening this week. Honestly, I know some people don’t like gushy posts about children but their teachers could not have been more complimentary. I had been nervous about Eli’s because he often gets warning cards for not doing as he is told but his teacher said that it’s really only minor things, that is clever and inquisitive and really has something about him. I can remember so clearly my fears about him starting school and whether he would manage and I just couldn’t be my proud to hear how he’s doing.
This week I have been getting my creative head on as we have had the Kindness Elves come to see us again for the month of December. I will be posting a full update on what they have been getting up to next week but basically they are small elves who come each day and encourage the kids to be kind or generous or think of others in some small way.
I wanted to share this moment because it really was a heartwarming part of my week; I felt a bit ill at the start of the week and pretty much spent the evenings of Monday to Wednesday collapsed on the sofa feeling sorry for myself (hence why so much television got watched). One of the days I asked for a cup of tea and this is what James brought me. It doesn’t happen all that often but sometimes he does small things which are just so sweet. Love him!
Have a great week all.
