This week, Friday falls on Saturday.... In terms of joining in with Cathy's Share-a-Page Fridays, that is! Yesterday I already had a post for Alexa's 'Simply A Moment' series plus my contribution to Jennifer's Frosty Festivities blog hop, so I figured I should hold this post back a day :) Here we go:
We went to see Skyfall on the 10th - me, The Doctor and The Children, meeting up with friends, one of whom was celebrating her birthday. The four of us then went for a meal afterwards. It felt so good to be able to go out and do something together as a family for the first time in weeks!
A reflective one on the 11th. (Sorry about that dark shadow, by the way - lighting here is atrocious...)
On Monday I went back to work, and regained another little bit of 'normal' :)
Time for another quotation! And having felt dark and frowning all too often this last few weeks, this quotation felt particularly appropriate...
A big shout out for online shopping! Another couple of Christmas presents arrived on Tuesday :)
Hmm, let's pretend I was deliberately aiming for a 'shadow stamping' effect, shall we?! On Wednesday I managed to get to a real actual shop - wow!! I only needed a couple of things but they weren't really possible to pick up online, so with The Mother's help I went to a local Tesco Homeplus (ie a Tesco store that doesn't sell groceries, but has all the clothes, books, toys etc). I got what I needed, and then got the lift upstairs to the Costa outlet - bliss! :)
At this point I ran out of space in Volume 1 (partly because I'd removed a couple of double pages - long story...) so sent out my minions to find another notebook from the same range. Isn't it cute?! Possibly even cuter than Volume 1!
Look at these little guys on a branch on the back of the book! Aww....
Anyway, back to the actual pages: on the 16th I wrote about voting for our local police commissioner. I'd actually voted by post already, but as Thursday was polling day, that was the day I was thinking about being thankful that we're able to vote freely, and I wanted to jot down some of those thoughts.
And after doing so many busy things - and, if I'm honest with myself, probably overdoing it a bit - yesterday I was so thankful that I could rest and relax and put my feet up!
