Christmas Time


Call me Scrooge, but I'm not the biggest fan of Christmas. Something about its scale just seems to odd, in a country that is hardly religious anymore. That said, I do love the whole 'warmth' of it; the pretty lights, the indulgent food and coming back home from uni (and literally being warm, of course - I've never appreciated heating so much).

Just thought I'd write a short post to share some of my Christmas snaps, which I hope get across that certain Christmassy 'je ne sais quoi'. Including one of my old piano duet books, complete with instructions on which finger to use - cute!


 The obligatory chocolate coins... and notes??
Mum's special request - 'wet walnuts'
New reading material - can't wait to get cracking on these!

...after finishing these :(...

...Aaah! Unfortunately the whole shebang is somewhat ruined by the impending deadlines that a new term at uni will bring. First on my agenda: a rather soul destroying economics essay. So if blogging is a bit intermittent, this is why!

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas and that school/uni/work isn't getting in the way of having a good time!

I know exactly what you mean - I sometimes feel a bit of a Scrooge when everyone gets so much more excited over Christmas than I do! Ah, work, I know that too well...hope you have a lovely break despite the deadlines x
