2015…whaaat. Time is flying, life starts again on Monday, bye bye lie ins and mooching all day. I was almost not going to join in this week, something to do with having been in a Bad Mood for a few days and not having blogged anything at all since…erm…too long, but let’s start as we mean to go on 🙂 plus, what a lovely thought to look back over the last 2 weeks and all the things that have been loved.
I completed my Bible in a year (woo!), but other than that I’m not sure that I’ve read anything completely…I have however started a couple of books. Miranda’s ‘Is It Just Me?’ and Lord of the Rings, which brings me to…
Lord of the Rings! It’s been a bit of a Tolkein-fest the last week, watching both Hobbit films at home (still not seen the third), then following that with all 3 LOTR films…makes you realise how much happens, and how great it is (in particular the LOTR, I have some grievances with the Hobbit in film form – book = fantastic). Hence me buying the books, I’m onto about chapter 3, according to my Kindle I have about 4 hours to go til I finish Book One (the first half of The Fellowship of the Ring). Bring it on.
(I’ve also watched: Shrek Forever After, Brave, Miranda, Cars, Monsters Inc, Baby Genius, Call The Midwife, Frozen, Up…to name a few)
Some of my lovely new clothes, including this cute jumper…
…and these new slippers!
They’re from Moshulu, who I am loving. I also got a pair of boots from their lovely little shop in Nantwich (where we spent Christmas) on Christmas Eve (love you hubby), but I haven’t braved wearing them outside yet. They’re my first pair of real boots so I want to ‘treat’ them – they came with a care booklet – love it.
A bit of revisiting the Frozen soundtrack…I got it on my phone so have been enjoying the songs 🙂 this medley of some people singing along is priceless.
Hmm. Some Mary Berry chocolate traybake for a New Years party, and I’m getting started on a knitting project – my first actual thing that will be a thing, not just a random piece of something knitted. Hopefully these will soon become a beautiful, sunset/sea like blanket for a new little niece or nephew who should be making an appearance in June 🙂
On that front, I’m enjoying using a circular needle. Much easier and lighter 🙂
SNOW! We had muchos snow up north, all of which has now disappeared, and although it was a bit of a pain when driving, it was truly beautiful. We didn’t do any sledging, but here are a couple of the Mr’s gorgeous photos from a walk we went on 🙂 I’m going to raid his computer tomorrow and get some more, so watch this space if you like pretty pictures of a winter wonderland!
Linking up with But Why Mummy Why, sharing the love of little things 🙂
