This Week I...

wore...
Tshirt - Topshop
Thermal under top - M&S
Skirt - Topshop
Boots - Converse
   Comfort and warmth are the name of the wardrobe game this week - double tights and thermal layers are really doing the job well (and a giant festive tshirt doesn't hurt either...).

watched...
Sleepers - My boss and I were talking about Kevin Bacon and she said I had to watch this movie, which was luckily on ITV2 a few days later.  It was very good but very disturbing, Kevin Bacon is at his best playing the bad guy I reckon!
Walk The Line - It was on Film 4 the other night and I remember loving it on first viewing, so it deserved a rewatch.  Just as good as I remembered, although I'm not sure how entirely based on fact it is, some parts seemed a bit convenient...
The Mummy - This was the first DVD I ever owned haha!  I really just watched it for nostalgia value when I was sewing the other day, it's so cheesy and easy to digest :)
Thor - I took a notion for this last night, it's one of my favourite movies and I hadn't drooled over Chris Hemsworth in a few months, had to be done.

read...
The Earth Hums in B Flat by Mari Strachen - I really loved this book about a dreamy Welsh girl growing up in the 50s in a family full of secrets.  I seem to have read a lot of books set in Wales lately, maybe I should pay it another visit!
I've just started The Untied Kingdom which is terribly written (should have guessed that from the 'Romance' sticker on the front I suppose...) but I really liked the idea - a girl is thrown into an alternate UK where we are a third world country in the middle of a war - so I'm willing to ride it out to the end, it's easy to read after all ;)
created...
some crafty pressies and the above top!  This top had been sitting on my sewing pile waiting to be made for aaaages and I finally got it done.  It was a very quick make, less than two hours from start to finish, but I didn't make any adjustments to it, and it's only 3 pieces with some darts and ironing required.  The armholes are slightly small though, so next time I may make some changes to the pattern...

purchased...
the last of my Christmas presents - yay!  Mother had requested chocolate mint sticks ages ago and I finally found them in Tesco yesterday - who'd have thought they'd be so elusive?!  She also went a bit nuts over a mint chocolate selection box we saw in Thorntons, so I picked that up then discovered my brothers girlfriend also got her one, oops...  I also bought some face wash (St Ives is half price in Superdrug!) and mascara, super exciting.

ate...
Lidl multi-grain bread, Shreddies, Wheat Crunchies and a McDonald's Festive Chicken Burger (which I don't recommend btw, the Chicken Legend is ten times better!)

listened to...
Christmas songs!  And the usual Snow Patrol/Taylor Swift/The Script mega mix that takes over my iPod...

Has everyone had a good week?  My boss gave me Christmas eve off for the first time in years, I've been beside myself with excitement since Monday!

  1. Eep, well done on the top, it's been shamefully long since I did any sewing :( I was hoping to make some progress on the actual mountain of sewing projects, but it looks as though I'll be moving offices on the xmas break now.
