Can you believe it’s November already? Just over another month and we will be celebrating Christmas and looking forward to a fresh new year that will hopefully bring more hope!
Half term is over now and things are somewhat back on track, to the point that my keyboard is starting to smoke from turbo typing! It’s great to be back with our Project 366 weekly round up, find out what we have been up to recently…
Project 366 Week 45 – It’s November!
After a two week half term, the weekend was spent ensuring everything was ready to start the week running. At this point I am so behind with the Christmas Gift Guide so I am itching to have some peace and quiet to sit down properly and type! I’ve also finished one blanket and started on the next since my last Project 366 post!
My alarm woke us up at 6.45am, which after 2 weeks of no alarms was a shock to the system again. It was full steam ahead though as both Liv and I got back on track with our school and work routines and I finally got chance to finish and publish the Beauty Gifts Inspiration for Christmas post! Featuring a selection of beauty items that we have been sent and like, I hope it gives you some ideas for present buying!
The most exciting occurance today was an IKEA delivery of Kallax units. Due to Covid restrictions, the units could only be left by the doorstep so I managed to get some weight training in for the week lugging them around!
My new diaries for 2021 arrived today and I am totally in love with them. A huge fan of anything stationery wise, my new beauties will hopefully keep me organised next year! I do love a substantial diary as I’m forever making notes and need all the space! A full on work day today including a sales meeting. I’ve not partaken in one of those for years and I quickly recalled why not!
Liv had hockey after school today so it gave me and extra hour of my day. I also managed an Aldi shop in the morning which was enlightening. I was somewhat perplexed by a lady who filled her trolley with 7 boxes of cereal but not enough milk to actually warrant that many. I guess stockpiling comes in many forms! Give me cake anyday!
Liv made an Apple and Blackberry crumble in school today, this may actually be a game changer! All I had to do was heat it up and pour lashings of cream over it ready for Emmerdale… bliss! Next week she will be making a puff pastry tart, so that will be dinner already sorted!
I was back to working on the blog today, with another fabulous Christmas giveaway published! Enter for your chance to win a Cranes Cider Gift Set just in time for the festive season!
Today we entered into Lockdown 2.0 again, yet I cannot say I noticed a difference! The roads were as busy as normal and a quick trip to Aldi for some hot dogs proved that shops weren’t any quieter either. It was great to take some time out this evening to enjoy a mini fireworks display over at our support bubbles house! This is why I needed the hot dogs! What better dinner to have whilst huddled around a chimnea watching fireworks than hot dogs and toasted marshmallows?
I also featured (gifted) Christmas Gifts For Men on the site today as part of the Gift Guide. I’m starting to get more on track now and hopefully I will have more time to catch up with Karen next week. I just haven’t had the time nor been in the mood to have to ‘people’ this week. Anyone else feeling like that at the moment?
A rush to try and tie as much up as possible so that I can have a break away from the screen this weekend. The next Gift Guide post is 80% complete and I take that for a win on the day! It was lovely to get into my comfies one Liv was home and enjoy a Friday night chill with Christmas movies on Netflix. Have you watched any Christmas movies yet? I’ve be re-watching Scandal this week in the background whilst working, quite apt with what’s happening with the US Elections at the moment, such an awesome show though!
Today has been a washing, homework, cleaning, tidying and building Kallax units day! I thought the units would be my saviour but it appears they have filled up rather quickly… though in my defence, 3 sections do contain wool… I need to get cracking with crocheting more blankets then!
