Well hello December! Can you believe we are in the final month of 2020? What a long slog it has been however, every day that passes is a day closer to some sort of normality!
There aren’t many images this week as I didn’t manage to get out on any walks sadly. The weather hasn’t been great and I have been tidying up ready to sort out all the Christmas decorations. It has been a much slower paced week which has been very much needed, but what have we been up to?
Project 366 Week 39 – Hello December
A slow start to the week both work and life wise. I featured a round up of all the Sim’s Life Christmas Gift Guide posts and giveaways today. I felt it was handier to have all the information in one place!
Well hello there December! The day we could finally start to crack open the doors on our advent calendars!
After a 3 week wait for my order to be acknowledged, my Piglet’s Pantry order finally arrived and Liv and I were able to enjoy some delicious cake and pastries. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, treats through the post are the greatest!
I needed to pop into my local town centre to return some items this morning and then decided to join the queue to have a look around Debenhams. The news of a crazy closing sale was incorrect, it clearly isn’t happening yet however it was nice to have a look around shops again. The town centre was certainly busier than last week, with everyone seemingly wanting to visit Primark!
With the bulk load of Christmas presents already sorted, I am going to try and not head into town again before Christmas. I can only see it getting busier in the run up!
A pre-9am trip to Aldi and Home Bargains was a LOT quieter than I expected! Considering how busy the shops and car park had been last week, I was really surprised!
It started snowing a little today which was a nice surprise. Nice as I don’t have to go out in the horrendous weather! Instead, I have been cracking on with the latest blanket to be kept in the lounge. With the Christmas Gift Guide published, I have more free time in the evenings to crack on and simply relax for once. If you have never tried crochet before, give it a try – it’s such a lovely pastime and very relaxing during all this craziness!
Karen made me very jealous with a picture of her lovely roaring fire today. I would love a log burning fire to keep me toasty throughout winter!
It’s TREE DAY! We are finally putting up all the Christmas decorations and getting in the mood! After the cake indulgence earlier in the week, I am back on Keto and eating a LOT of omelettes, so am looking forward to tucking into a roast chicken dinner with my yummy Keto cauliflower cheese later. A fabulous winter warming meal!
How has your week been? Have you made any hearty meals this week?
