Happy Sunday! Who has had fireworks this weekend? I guess I kind of did; my bedroom window provides the perfect view of everyone else’s displays!

Here is what’s rocking (and sinking) in my world right now.

– Teapigs liquorice and peppermint tea. So good.
– Cuddles with Flash
– Xfactor…how good was Matt last night?! Amazing.
– Socks. I’ve started to re-build my sock collection after working out how well they team up with tights to provide the ultimate in comfort.
– Crisp, sunny days. Perfect for walking in the park.
– Jelly beans, chocolate buttons and gingerbread men. Childhood comfort food.
– Marmite. So perfect with oh so many winter comfort foods.
– Masterchef final. Mind blowing.
– Reading. I’ve spent many an hour curled up warm with a book this week.

– Soaps. They just get more and more overly dramatic and bizarre. I’m looking at you Eastenders.
– Rain. Combined with cold weather. Hair hell and miserable me.
– Lack of tofu…what’s going on shops? This girl has a craving.
– Christmas. Yes, I love it, but I’m getting a little tired of songs and decorations already.
– Shorter days. It’s dark when I wake up and dark again before late afternoon. More sunlight please.

I think that just about covers it! What are you loving and loathing this week?

it’s been a while since I last did a Q&A
so consider this post your chance to ask me any burning questions. I’ll answer them later in the week.

  15. recently been given a few pairs of cute little socks with cupcakes on them. they have all become favorite above everything else in my wardrobe. the swing band I’m in started rehearsing Christmas songs last Friday which means i we will be playing them every Friday now until Christmas – so i definatley feel your pain there !
    with love anon.
    ps please check out my blog – its new
    – thanks πŸ™‚

  16. I love that you’re reading Alias Grace! It is one of my favourites by Atwood, and so interesting since it’s based (on what little info there is available) on an actual person and event that would be super scandalous today let alone then – wearing the murdered woman’s clothes to trial??? Yeah. Love that book. Have you read any others by Atwood?

  17. I missed the fireworks display this weekend, gutting. But it’s so cold, staying in was quite nice too!

  18. Totally agree with all of ur Ins & Outs πŸ™‚

  20. yesterday evening as i was out for a walk, i got surprised with a fireworks show! i didn’t realize we’d have one but now i see it was for veterans day.

    great picks : ) i have no idea what marmite is so i’ll have to look that up, though lol

    i ran out of tea, i hate when I do that. so i picked up some constant comment to tide me over…

    i usually don’t watch soaps but my friend has gotten me hooked on a korean drama. then of course there’s glee and gossip girl ^_^
