Blogmas: Day Five – Currently…

Technically I think it’s supposed to be Vlogmas but I’m doing Blogmas! But in the CRAZEE that is coming over the next few days the idea of trying to film and edit without Jaxon creating havoc just makes me a bit more stressed so writing this in bed or hiding elsewhere in the house seems like a good plan and hopefully I might just keep up!

Watching…

This weekend I actually managed to watch both episodes of Strictly Come Dancing. Jaxon and I watched the Saturday night show on Sunday after church. He sat down with me for some of it then got onto playing some more.

Chris then sat with me and we played Cluedo while the results show played. When they got down to the final two, I said who I thought would go home out of the two and I was right. Who’s going to win? As much as I would like Claudia or Louise in a sort of girl power kind of way I think Danny is that bit better followed by Ore. We’ll see though, it’s rarer that I actually pick the winner.

Reading…

One of the guys in our community group suggested giving a Fantasy author that he likes a go after I commented that I had started reading the Game of Thrones books a while back but didn’t get through book one. The author’s name is Brandon Sanderson (I think!). I have the sample of The Final Empire. It’s the first book in the MIstborn Trilogy.

Listening…

Now we are properly in December I can actually have Christmas music on. Yesterday afternoon there was Christmas music playing on the radio so I was singing along to one of the Graham Kendrick songs from Dreaming of a Holy Night. When me and The Kiwi sang in the choir at the Dreaming of a Holy Night concert here in Bedford we’d only been in our current house about six weeks. We were still on a prepay meter, we’d had such a busy week that we were in the emergency of our allowance and that ran out. There was snow on the ground and we were all freezing because by the time we’d got home from the concert, the shop was closed and we couldn’t get any money added to the meeting. Oops!¬†

You can find my Christmas Playlist here on Spotify.

Making…

Between squares for my Temperature Blanket, I’m working on a prop scarf (loosely) based on the Tom Baker Doctor Who scarf. It’s possible we might need it next Christmas so I figured if I started knitting now hopefully it will be long enough and I can also use up some oddments that I have.

Feeling…

Calmer that our crazy weekend is over. Now need to take care of some important business and not sure how some of it will go down so I guess I’m nervous maybe…

Planning…

I did a little bit of planning in my Erin Condren Hourly this weekend. I’m hoping now things are that bit calmer I might be able to sort out bits properly.

I’m hoping that this week I can get my Christmas shopping finished. I have some that are urgent and need to be done this week and others that can possibly wait a little longer so I’m going to prioritise them and make sure I’m on track.

Loving…

It’s Day Five of my Brimbles Box Advent Calendar. So far I’ve had a pencil case, a pen, a roll of washi and some star sticky notes. I’m loving it already and am excited to see what’s in the next packages coming up.
