Last Week's Shenanigans (24th December - 30th December)...MERRY CHRISTMAS!

It's already Christmas 2018? WHAAAT? I always feel that, aside from January which is the slowest month in the world, every year goes quickly. I can't BELIEVE that it's almost 2019, the year I'm getting married! But for now, Merry Christmas everyone! 

I'm very pleased with how lovely my Christmas was this year, after spending last week with my family I spent the Christmas Eve to Boxing Day solely with Mat (and a few friends on Christmas Eve, which was lovely). There is nothing more wonderful to me than 'a quiet Christmas'...does that mean I'm getting old? I'm pretty pleased with the stash I received this year, particularly from Mat who showered me with books.

Thanks to everyone for their wonderful gifts, even the kittens had a great time and were totally exhausted by the end of it. Mat then went to visit his family on 27th so I was left alone in that weird, timeless period between Christmas and the new year! While back at his parents, Mat got a PSVR for Christmas, so on the evening of the 30th, a friend of mine came round and we had a ton of fun playing scary games on it!
