December 2017 round up


How is it 2018 already? We hope you had a jolly festive season and aren’t too down in the dumps about getting back to work. Here’s what we did in December:


WHAT I HAVE READ

December is such a busy month that there wasn’t much time for reading. I got some books for Christmas so I will have to make more time for reading this month!

  • Dear Santa – Rod Campbell
  • Dirty Gertie Mackintosh – Dick King-Smith

I’ve got two on the go also:

  • A Wind in the Door (A Wrinkle in Time #2) – Madeleine L’Engle (audiobook)
  • The Faith Trials – Buffy TV Tie-in

WHAT FIONA HAS WATCHED

  • Hollyoaks (so no surprise there!)
  • More ER
  • We finished Stranger Things
  • The Call the Midwife Christmas special

WHAT FIONA HAS DONE

  • The usual routine of rhyme time and baby groups, plus some Christmas parties for Brodie
  • Managed to wrap all my presents in good time
  • Celebrated my birthday
  • Did NOT stay up for the bells at midnight for the new year!
  • Watched Brodie learn to roll onto his side, grab his feet and get up to even more mischief

WHAT STEF HAS READ

I didn’t actually get much reading done in December, it was fairly busy one way and another. So we’re going to start afresh from Janurary’s round up! Haha


WHAT STEF HAS WATCHED

I watched:

  • various Top Gear episodes
  • A few episodes of the Grand Tour
  • Mock the Week
  • QIXL
  • Iron Man 2, Thor the Dark World, Captain America Civil War, Avengers Age of Ultron (me and my boyfriend went on a Marvel movie marathon!)

WHAT STEF HAS DONE

Well, I have managed this month to do my Christmas shopping, wrapping, break a lamp shade at a Christmas party and damage my knee! I’m now waiting on an appointment to see an orthopaedic surgeon. Oh the joy! Just what I didn’t want from 2018, but it looks like I got it!

    I have been hiding in Cambridge for a few weeks and totally out of things so I will be catching up with my Father Brown Box sets and of course, starting to read the Famous Five series again – I haven’t done so for ages!
    Fond regards, Francis
