Quick catch up!

20160820_093729

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and lets have a catch up!

November is hurtling by at quite a speed.  I cannot believe that Saturday is the 1st of December and time to take out the Christmas tree and decorations.  I’m looking forward to it and yesterday after work we gave our home a thorough clean.  For some reason I always feel it is imperative to run around with the vacuum and mop before any decorating can commence.

Maybe that is just me.

I haven’t updated my blog in over a week but have been doing a lot of writing.  Creative writing – just working on some fiction and it has been very relaxing.  Last night while the floors dried we sat in the study.  Hubby was working on a new post for his website while I did some writing and it was a great start to the evening.

On Sunday morning I did some gift shopping and I’m pleased to (almost be able to) tick that off my to-do list.  We aren’t exchanging loads of gifts with everyone we know and I think this simplifies things so much.

We have a few pre-Christmas lunches and dinners we are attending but all before we go on leave and then we are off until the New Year!

I’ve been doing a month of gratitude and it has been amazing.  Everyday I write down 5 things that I’m grateful for and when the month ends, I’m going to continue doing this.

I’m loving summer at the moment.  You know that lovely weather just before it gets super hot?  Last night we even had some rain which was awesome.

On Saturday I went for a spa pedicure.  A bit of pampering and beautiful toenails – felt great walking out there!  It is essential to spoil ourselves – especially this time of year which can be extra busy.

Do you ever read two books at the same time?  I’m currently reading “This could change everything” by Jill Mansell and have just started “Summer at shell cottage” by Lucy Diamond.  Enjoying both so far.

What about you?  What have you been up to?

  1. I tend to read more than one book at a time, though I’ve mostly read magazines this week while traveling. I’m in the midst of Christmas shopping – I have the nieces and nephew finished though, so that’s good!

  2. I’ve been organizing the gifts I’ve purchased, wrapping, all of that. I got SUPER smart this year and used specific wrapping paper for each Christmas get together I’m going to so I’m not having to sort in a rush. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner!
