Merry belated Christmas! I hope you’ve all enjoyed stuffing your little faces and snoozing in front of the TV this week, I know I have. I’ve barely even switched my laptop on this week and it has been great to just have a bit of a break and not feel guilty for doing nothing all day. I’m going to remain in “holiday mode” until the first week in January, so I’m taking the opportunity to catch up on sleep, read lots of books, watch as many films as possible and spend some time with the family. I’m heading back down to Edinburgh tomorrow for Hogmanay, but we’ve got another big family lunch on today so I’m going to fill up on festive food while I still can!
I always seem to go through phases of binge-reading; I won’t read anything for months then during the holidays I’ll read five or six books all in one go. I’m currently half way through book number three, no doubt I’ll make a start on number four during tomorrow’s train journey south! You can keep up to date with what I’m reading over on Goodreads. Any recommendations for me? Even though I’m definitely still an advocate of “proper” books, I must admit that being able to download them instantly to my Kindle is pretty handy – and cheap! I’ve just downloaded Donna Tartt’s newest book, The Goldfinch, for only £1.99. Bargain.
I’ve also been taking advantage of the bath here to use up all my Lush goodies that I’ve been hoarding for the past few months. I’m not really a bath kinda person so I don’t really miss not having one in my flat, but whilst I was at home I thought I might as well – and, you know, baths ain’t half bad sometimes. I had a bath with the Star Light, Star Bright bath melt last night and not only did it smell amazing and leave my skin super soft, I’m still covered in glitter this morning!
Hope you all had a great Christmas, and I’ll see you in 2014!
How was your week?
