November Round Up..


It's been rather a while since I last did one of these round-up posts but I have a few November photos to share so figured it was high time I did another one.

The month started with fireworks in more ways than one - with real ones and a breakup. Could see the local display rather nicely from my bedroom window as it's held right outside my house. I love fireworks. The real ones, that is.

I got stuck into some new-to-me viewing. I watched both seasons of Twin Peaks in a short space of time, and was rather obsessed - plans to hold a TP themed party are in the pipeline. And I enjoyed Drive, despite the fact that Gosling isn't my cup of tea.

I made my Christmas cake. I used the same recipe, borrowed from Liz, as I did last year. It went down well last time and I'm sure it will again. I've been dutifully feeding it with brandy every few days.

I went ice skating, which I love, for the first time in ages. I took the Rangers and in true every-time-we-go-anywhere style, we almost missed the train home. Oops. It was fun though, and we've got two new girls in the unit, which is cool.

Following the aforementioned break-up, I've been surrounding myself with lots of new (and rather awesome) people. Thanks for being great. <3

No month would be complete without a tonne of sewing. This month, most of it has been for other people, either as Xmas presents or orders. But I've managed to make 5 dresses for myself as well, which I think is pretty good going.

I also booked a trip to Las Vegas, for work and play. I fly today and could not be more excited - it's been a long time since I left this country.

How was November for you?

  6. My November was good, but nowhere near as eventful as yours seemed to be!
    I'm glad you've got lots of great people around you, they're always needed after a breakup, as well as a new TV series to get obsessed over. I've never watched Twin Peaks, but after hearing you talk about it so kindly I may have to give it a go!

  7. Wow, you've been busy making all of those gorgeous dresses. I wouldn't even know where to start. I can't ice skate either! I used to be good at rollerskating and blading when I was little, but I've never been able to master the ice. Hope you have a fantastic time in Vegas; you deserve to! xx

    1. I have rollerblades but I never take them out anymore, which is a shame.

  8. Gah, have fun in Vegas, how exciting! Great job on all those dresses. It's always nice to see fireworks from the comfort and warmth of your own home than standing around waiting in the freezing cold!
