I'm kind of looking forward to Christmas a bit more than usual this year. Just me and Dave on Christmas day again, with the odd visit from parents and friends. I do need to start my shopping though, which will have to wait until payday. I do have a list and it shouldn't be too stressful, I just hate going into the shops, as they're so busy and everyone is really aggressive. I am getting some stuff online but it's Dave's birthday next week and only 1 of the 3 things I've ordered has turned up! The one, I'm pretty sure is lost but amazon said they can't look into it any further until the 25th and the other is from America and can take 1-3 weeks so hopefully it'll be here this week. If not, then I'll have to think of something else and he can have them at Christmas. Rise Against tonight though (which was another birthday treat), yay!
December is going to be so busy though, I think I'm doing something every weekend now right up until the week before. Work will be busy too, so I'm sure the time will go quick. Kind of nice to be looking forward to it so much since I hate NYE.

I have just bought the greatest Christmas film of all time 'A Muppets Christmas Carol' on amazon for the bargainous sum of £3.98. Awesome.

I have been told to blog and I shall!

*I haven't really been upto that much though. My driving lessons have started and although I'm enjoying it I was petrified when I went out on the road for the first time last week. I panicked and everything went wrong though so he had me driving around the car park this week which was a lot better and allowed me to concentrate on some things that I kept doing wrong. It is fun though.
*Started new job last week. I am enjoying it, I just don't like not knowing how to do things and feeling out of my depth. I like being good at stuff!
*HP scarf all finished and warm. Started one for my Uncle now as he wants a Newcastle United one for Xmas and reckons I won't finish it on time.
*Been quite snappy and irritable today. Just a combination of being tired and bombarded with work and other stuff. I'm sure I'll be alright soon.
*I got a signed book from Sarra Manning today. I'm not sure how many people are familar with her but I used to read her 'Diary of a Crush' column in J-17 when I was younger (like 15, 16). Anyway, I've bought all of her books over the last few years and they're the only ones my sister will read (and has consequently run off with) but on her blog a few weeks ago she requested a Spotify code. So I emailed her one and she sent me a signed book as a thank you and it arrived today! So pleased :)
