A few weeks back I met up with Gemma, Ollie, Cathy & Boop at Nandos. It was so nice to catch up with them over dinner. Gemma & Ollie had just got back from holiday so I hadn't seen them for a while. Gemma's little bump had grown so much! Almost 3 months to go!
Last Sunday, I organised for the girls & I to go to the Christmas market in our local town, followed by a roast at the pub. The actual market was quite small, with a few Christmassy stalls & a food hall, where we had a catch up over a hot drink & a Rudolph cookie. We also saw a pug in a Christmas jumper.. need I say more!?
The roast after at the pub was so delicious too. They sat us right next to the log fire, where we nearly fell asleep after our meal!
Our pantomime this year is Aladdin, so we've just put up our lanterns at work. It's so pretty in the evenings when people are coming in & out to the cinema & we're counting down the days till opening night! It really does feel like Christmas when panto starts!
On Thursday, James & I celebrated our 4 year anniversary together. He totally spoilt me with flowers, a pamper kit & nail varnish. My treat to him was lunch at Giggling Squid, which is one of our favourite places to eat. It's a beautiful Thai restaurant - I'd highly recommend their Sleeping Honey Duck & Chicken Satays if you get the chance to go!
James has started his new job working at the Royal Mail sorting office at the beginning of the month, so is currently working 3-10pm Monday - Saturday, so after lunch, he headed off to work. I'd arranged to put up our Christmas tree & decorate the house with mum, so we spent the evening together, enjoying some festive music while putting up the decorations. I've started vlogging a bit this month too. Last year I vlogged Christmas Eve, Christmas Day & Boxing Day, but I've decided to film throughout December this year, when we have fun things going on. I'm not promising anything, but hoping they'll be a video up at the end of this month!
Finally, yesterday we visited James' mum & husband Barrie to help put up their Christmas lights & have a catch up. We had brunch at this beautiful tea room in the local town. I was so impressed, I'm thinking of holding my birthday there. I'll keep you updated ; )
