Dark Days

Today was a mean weather day. Hands deep into my pockets. I took a couple of pictures and browsed a few cupcake websites today. Early riser Aaron was up with the Lark watching footy results on "match of the yawn..."
Its a funny time between November and December when i think "is it too early to put up a tree" but then i cant wait till Its officially Christmas and i can get busy with the decorations. This is my first year living with the Small and he doesnt like things to be "too Christmassy". I sure he will come round to my way of thinking when he gets home from work next week to find he lives in Santa's grotto. Once the lights and tinsel is up im sure he will be far too tired from work to want to take then down.
Im seeing this.....

and i want to see this!

More fun with the camera. I have been getting to know my new toy and what it can do.
So far i have done this...

and this...

My Aaron was very manly today and did much throwing away of rubbish. This resulted in several visits to the local waste recycling centre. He has also gone out for an "hevening" with his man pals.
I stayed in and watched SATC: The Movie for the 16th time

I browsed ebay and thought about delicious things to eat and buy..

This website needs to be checked out.

Goodie Bags

I went to a Christmas Charity evening at Debenhams on Tuesday night and the cost of a ticket was £3.00.
On arrival we were given a goodie bag.

The contents included:
Clarins 2 x Beauty Flash Balm 30ml
Clarins Moisture Quench Hydra-care Cream 30ml
Clarins Pure Melt cleansing gel 5ml
Clarins Gentle eye make up remover
Gucci by Gucci 5ml perfume
Innocent by Theiry Mugler 5ml perfume
Armani Code for Men aftershave 5ml
Dolce & Gabbanna "The One" perfume 5ml
£5 off voucher for Debenhams beauty club
Lancome Gift card (total amount on card not known yet as i havent activated it)
Lancome Zen 5 x moisturiser samples 5ml each
Lancome Miracle perfume 5ml

There was also free champagne, punch and fresh orange juice with canapes and nibbles.

We walked round the store with free abandon and made notes on a few choice "christmas" must haves. Some of which are on my must buy list for payday 15th Nov.

I think i totally swagged out on this evening and i also got to have a go on the Benefit lucky dip. Buy two items and a free "lucky dip".
I pulled out a lovely little kabuki brush. I gave this to my good friend Sarah.
It was a wonderful evening and i cant wait till the next one.

SATC and me...

Today i will be watching SATC the Movie again.
This will be the 15th time and it just keeps getting better.
My Aaron is working till 6pm so a spot of lunch will be in order and i will do some shopping.
I will visit "the Boys" and then this evening we have been invited to a belated haloween party.
Busy Magpie.....

Me me me wednesday

I had an awful day at work and looked forward to coming home all day.
Aaron had an evening planned with his pals at the cinema after we had tea so i had some wonderful lady alone time. I had a hot bubble bath followed by a hot cuppa and a few biccies and caught up with the final episode of "The Family".
Bliss Bliss Bliss.
Much time perusing a few cupcake websites and i will end the night with a few games on Facebook.

A great end to a poo day.

Looking forward to tomorrow.

My Aaron has just enquired about the website that im browsing and this is what i was looking at.

He asked if i wanted an engagement ring to which i replied....

"I dont need an engagement ring because you are my diamond"

I love him always.

Winter is here as i wore a scarf and gloves earlier today.

When it gets cold like today i tell myself that i will make my favorite detour to get home and walk the route that i used to take when heading home from primary school.
There are trees on each side of the street and as they are so old the roots have made the pavement rickety and unruly.
It has its own church with a small vicarage and tennis courts leading onto a play park.
This time of year the park is deserted due to the cold weather and the nights are drawing in making it darker earlier. Each house with its inviting lights is a joy to pass and has its own unique character. Sometimes when i take this journey i try to pretend that im 7 again imagining what games i would play when i eventually reached home. Most of the gardens will be full of the leaves fallen from the trees and if the curtains are not closed on some of the homes i get a sneek peek into peoples living room. The best time to walk down this street is christmas and im sure i will be making the detour soon.

This is what i mostly did today...

From the list in the post below this is what i actually did today,
  1. Laundry
  2. Food shopping
  3. Looked at these websites....
and drank lots of tea. Best Sunday this week.
