Oh my goodness, how did we end up more than halfway through November? I can’t believe that it’s only a matter of weeks until Christmas ….
Last week was another crazy busy one and went by in a flash, once again.
Nothing very exciting happened – just the usual juggling of work, home, unsuccessful furniture shopping, appointments, social things and life in general. The weather was mostly wet and blowy.
I did make a start on my Christmas shopping, thank goodness – all online as usual. I don’t know how I ever lived without online shopping, I honestly don’t. Life has changed so dramatically since the inception of the internet and, although without doubt it’s an amazing thing and generally nothing but positive, I often wish William could have experienced life without it – things were just so much simpler and slower then.
Bloody hell, talk about sounding middle-aged! *Administers sharp slap to self*
My broadband connection was (and still is) very sporadic and I wouldn’t like to count the number of hours I spent on the phone to BT’s ‘help’desk in India. They are sending an engineer tomorrow, so hopefully it will be resolved.
I did my first round of the charity shops in aaages, and picked up a couple of pairs of shoes. Also some Rimmel bargains from Poundland.
Ashley was in London on Friday evening for a conference, and I had visions of a cosy evening in front of the TV with William. In actual fact, I sat by myself in the lounge with a glass of wine for most of it, and Will only emerged from his bedroom for long enough to order and eat Domino’s pizza, before returning to his XBox. Charming!
Saturday night we went out with friends for a meal to Michael Caines’ restaurant in Exeter – the food was very average, but the evening was fun. Here’s a rare selfie with my outfit of choice for the evening.
Sunday morning brought showers, so rather than get up and go to the bootsale, I snuggled back down in my bed – lovely! I took Ashley to see a potential sofa that I’d seen while he was away, that I liked – unsurprisingly, he didn’t like it! I think I may order it anyway, though, as I haven’t seen anything else I like, and time is marching on.
I finished all my crochet snowflakes this week – I have really enjoyed making these, and now just have to decide how I’m going to display them at Christmas – so many options …
And that was another week over …
How was your’s?
