November Show and Tell..

Ooh, November, you've been a pretty full month, haven't you?

Our Guides' monster theme weekend went rather well - one of the things we made during our time there was decorate monster cupcakes. Unfortunately, I came home to find this had happened to the flat whilst I'd been away....

coffee machine penguins!

The following weekend I went to London, and was mightily impressed by the window displays in John Lewis. I have to admit I rather like their advert this year, but I don't quite understand why anyone would be moved to tears by it...? I bought some clothes, restricted myself to just the one pair of shoes from the Irregular Choice store, and bought a selection of pretty plates from Anthropologie.  The next day was Remembrance Sunday, and we were part of the parade.

The weekend after that? Alex was staying nearby, so I went to visit her (as well as meeting up with her for a trip to the ballet!) and she brought me the awesome new gym trousers she'd very kindly picked up from her local store for me.

We went exploring to a local National Trust property, which involved traipsing through apples and leaves in the gardens, and I was in awe of the amazing greenhouse - if only I could get the allotment looking something like that...

I did some more shopping - managed to find THE perfect dress for Christmas day, as well as picking up some total bargains from eBay. Sequins!

I met my Nana in town for some coffee and shopping, and the biggest piece of cake I've ever known. I couldn't finish half of this. But she bought me a rather wonderful sparkly present.

We had a stall at a local Xmas fair, and felt a little bit hipster with our lemonade in jam jars, with paper straws.

And I received a lovely parcel of books as part of the Blogger Book Swap which Rosie organised. Can't wait to start reading - I still have a few books to tick off before I've read 52 in 52 (there's a tab dedicated to that list, along the top of the blog) and I'm determined to make it by the end of the year.

 What did your November look like?
