This is the first update for December & I can't believe I'm actually typing the word December.. where has this year gone!? & what's even crazier is it's nearly Christmas! I don't know about you, but this is honestly one of my favourite times of the year. (Mostly because we count down the days in the form of chocolate..) I'm absolutely in love with my advent calendar this year. Thanks Mum!
Last Tuesday I received my first Christmas presents when I met up with my girl Ricka at Bills. It was a very exciting time & we got a few weird looks from people as we exchanged gifts on the 1st December.. haha! We also had the yummiest breakfast, complete with our favourite, earl grey tea. It was so lovely to see her & even though we live near each other, with our busy schedules, it's hard to meet up over the Christmas period.
Last Thursday I travelled up to Gloucester to see James at uni. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary at the beginning of December, but as we couldn't be together on that day, we made the following weekend extra special. We spent the day Christmas shopping on Friday & went out for dinner at Coal in the evening. I've never been to Coal before but found it to be such a lovely restaurant, I'd highly recommend it. We shared nachos as a starter & I had the most delicious steak for main & James had a burger & fries. We has a small cosy table away from everyone lit up by a tea light. It was perfect. We spent the rest of the weekend curled up on the sofa watching TV, including The Walking Dead which James has been trying to get me to watch for a good year or so! It's not that it's a bad series, it's the fact I hate scary thing & zombies is quite high on my list.. Don't worry, I got my own back.. he now has to watch One Tree Hill with me..!
& finally yesterday was the dress rehearsal for panto & it officially starts today! December is always the busiest month for us at work as we have cinema screens & a main theatre + studio shows, so the run up to Christmas is extremely manic! I'm looking forward to January when I can relax..
Hope you've had a good week lovelies! I've been blogging a lot recently (mostly Christmas posts!) so if you're struggling for inspiration this year, make sure you check them out! : )
