Sorry blog posts have been few and far between recently. I haven't really been feeling motivated to blog these days. I think it's been a mixture of things. Writers block hasn't helped and I feel like recently the amount of comments I get on this blog has been going down hill. I blog for myself and to log memories but hearing from readers encourages me to want to share more and lets me know someone is actually reading.
Regardless of if I hear from readers or not I will carry on though.
Last week I found out that I was signed up for a stall at a Christmas fair in the local area (I thought I couldn't do it previously and thought the organiser knew I couldn't!). It turned out I could attend after all so these past few days I've been crafting like crazy..trying to get things made. I've got a week and a bit to go and I've made atleast half of what I want to take so that's good. My fingers are swollen and sore and the top of my back hurts from sitting constantly over the sewing machine but fingers crossed it will be worth it : )
In other news, Christmas has come early in this household! My mum and I really love this time of year so Christmas music is playing on the stereo as I type this. I heard a Michael Buble Christmas song on the radio the other day so we aren't the only ones!!
The decorations will come out around the 1st of December which isn't really that long off. Last night I went past a house with a Christmas Tree and lights up... I loved it but it's a BIT too early for us : /
I've done most of my Christmas shopping already with a few bits remaining. Those remaining ones are for the men in my family..why oh why are men so hard to buy for?!? Especially when you are on a budget and they don't want toiletries. I would love to leave Christmas shopping till December when all the decorations are up (I'd feel really festive then) but I find the shops sooo busy and just stressful.
Not fun or festive at all.
As a little something extra we make chocolate truffles (or maybe fudge this year) and give them as little gifts too.
I don't know about you but I've been really disappointed with the Xmas adverts so far on TV (UK tv channels). Marks and Spencers, John Lewis and Next usually never disappoint but this year they haven't been so good. They don't evoke that excited feeling you get when you see the famous Coco Cola ad...THE ONE i'm waiting to see...Holidays are comin..... : ) : )
I have begun to make a 'MUST DO' list for Christmas which I will share with you all soon.
