The Christmas market looks beautiful, most of the craft items being sold are the sort of thing you can make at home without a problem but its still a perfect hunting ground for ideas. I've done most of my Christmas shopping now though so I'm happy, my sister is stressing out as she's bought no gifts yet.
Its been a bit hectic here, with exams and essays but things are slowly starting to settle down. I've got a few things to hand in and a few presentations to do but its all good really. I'm calm and prepared. We've even had time to set up a little Christmas tree in the living room. Its only about three foot tall but it makes it feel a bit more like home, this year will be the first year I wont be there to help set up the tree... I feel like I'm actually supposed to be a grown up now. I don't think I ever will be though.
My presents I ordered online when I was sick have finally started arriving as well, which is brilliant, I was worried some of them wouldn't arrive in time. Though Elles earrings aren't here yet... I got my Father a tie as always, he is always in a tie. It wouldn't be my FatherBean without a tie on.
For my Mim I bought some silver dachshund earrings as she loves dachshunds, our little Lily should be expecting so hopefully there will be puppies by new years. I also bought her a Winchester Cathedral christmas tree decoration as I thought it was beautiful and the earrings weren't really enough.
I bought my Best friend Krisi a 'Grow your own boyfriend' because back when I was buy presents I asked what she wanted and she responded 'a man.' Best gift ever, so fitting... she has since found herself a real boyfriend so she best think its still funny or I might offend. Oh Well.
I need to buy a cross stitch book for Leigh and something Beauty and The Beast theme for Amanda. I also need to make a batch of Fudge for my secret Santa. I'll do that tomorrow. I also did my Christmas cards for Laura, Andy, Sophie and Beth; the people I will be living with next year.
Laura with Santa, Based on the mouldy teapot incident
Beth calls everyone Ducky
Andy got locked in a bathroom and needed rescuing by firemen...
Sophie... well Sophie does west country harry potter so it makes sense
