How am I writing my weekly Project 366 post already? This week seems to have flown by, with the Christmas break in touching distance! People have already started putting up their Christmas decorations, however we will not be joining in that trend, I would be fed up of having them up for so long, so I’m trying to stick it out a little longer!
We are however preparing for the colder weather as you can see from this post. I love being warm, if I could walk around covered in my duvet all day, I absolutely would. The prepper in me is telling me that we will be Winter ready… so long as I keep crocheting!
Fortunately there were no washing machine incidents this week and I have certainly been putting the new machine through its paces, but what else have we been up to this week?
Project 366 Week 48 – We Will Be Winter Ready
Nothing much to report as the time was spent crocheting, working and tidying up. At this point, I have forgotten what we used to do during normal times, hopefully 2021 will remind us!
The last Christmas giveaway went live today and it’s such a lovely set, perfect for Christmas! Enter for your chance to win a games bundle worth £70!
That’s it though, I am done! The Sim’s Life Christmas Gift Guide is done for another year and now I can relax!
As a needed break away from the screen, a buddy and I went for a gorgeous walk to blow away the cobwebs. Our path has totally changed now due to the elements, certainly a different picture to than in a previous Project 366 post which showcased lots of lovely Autumnal colours. It is definitely time to wrap up warm!
The walk was quiet, I guess Monday is a good choice of day to walk down there and we didn’t have to dodge too many people. We did come across this awesome tree though… can you guess who it is?
I decided to amble into the local town centre again today and whilst the car park was equally as quiet as last week and the town still eerily quiet, M&S was marginally busier and I had to dodge more people. Even first thing! However, I did manage to pick up some Percy Pig related treats to include in Liv’s Christmas Eve box!
I seemed to be on the go all day, but didn’t really have anything to report. One of those days that you simply forget about, even what you had for dinner! However, our November Glossybox did arrive, so that was exciting to check out when Liv returned home from school. I already knew she would commandeer the eyeshadow palette, but it gave me bargaining power! This has been a fabulous subcription box treat this year for us both to share.
I headed down to Aldi and Home Bargains for my weekly shop pre-9am and anyone would have thought it’s almost Christmas… no joke! There was no difference in parking and amount of people there from the same time last year. It was crazy down there, however I did my best Walking Dead impression and dodged as many ‘walkers’ as I could! Picking up a few bargains whilst I waltzed, twirled and zig zagged down the aisles!
Liv has become a huge Friends fan recently after we marathon watched all 10 seasons, so I know this selection of goodies I found in store at Aldi will be an ideal Christmas present for her. Ticking both the stationery and ‘things she will love’ boxes… sorted!
Aldi is a treasure trove though, you never know what you will find from one week to the next, which is why I have random items like flamingo print gaffa tape in my house. It all comes in handy!
A mellow end to the week and a socially distanced catch up with a friend I had not seen in a while. It was bloomin’ chilly today so I am glad to have started on ANOTHER crochet blanket! I have placed the pink and white yarn to one side for the moment to start a new blanket for the lounge and I LOVE the colours! By all accounts it will be quite a harsh Winter, much colder than the most recent Winters, so the prepper in me is trying to organise ourselves with gloves, hats, new wellies, thick coats etc… we WILL be Winter ready!
A homework and tidy up day, ready for Christmas, with a mini break to watch Jack Reacher and crochet more. Lazy Saturdays are the best! Karen sent me a picture of some inflatable Christmas decorations today and I seriously need to add them to my collection, so some belated Black Friday shopping is also on the cards!
