#IMWAYR – A late one!

Monday, Blogging, It's Monday What Are You Reading?, IMWAYR, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

 

So Christmas is done but we are still waiting for the New Year and things are really starting to take shape over here at Blog A Book. In the next couple of weeks you will be seeing some changes here and there. If there is anything in particular that you would like to see on the blog just send me an email. So back to the late Monday’s  post.

I finished listening to this on Audible a couple of days ago and have to say I am glad it is over.
Review will be up soon.

Little Lies, Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty, Books, Fiction, Womens Fiction, Blog A Book Etc, Fay

This book is a title from earlier in the year but it has been waiting on my shelf for some time so I figured it would be a good opportunity to read it now and listen along the way. I have read a couple of Moriarty’s books and loved them. Have you read any?

Don’t you just love it when you have an excuse to light some scrummy Yankee Candles! The Christmas scents are particularly yummy smells. Do you have a favourite?

Crowded Christmas Shopping

That’s right – two days before Christmas being normal human beings we forgot some bits and had to brave the crowds. This is just a little part of the crowd that we encountered in Stratford Westfield.

Of course I had to get the boy a present and he absolutely loved it – it lasted all of two days.

Although I am working on New Year’s Eve that doesn’t stop me thinking about what I would wear if I was actually going out. There will be a post up tomorrow with other items for an outfit to bring in the New Year. What are you wearing for the big night?

So despite it being Tuesday I hope you enjoyed my Monday post!

How Did I Get On?

As you can see I got most of my list done. On the commenting front there were only a couple of blogs that I commented on. However this week I have been slightly more active on Twitter than usual and am trying to take more pictures and Instagram straight away.

Christmas Shopping, Christmas, Shopping, Oxford Street, Festive, Seasonal, Season, Crowds, Presents

On the gift basket front I have been Christmas shopping a couple of times this week and done a lot more shopping for myself – although that is expected as I was surprisingly prepared this year as most presents are already bought. This is something that even surprises me!

Something that took my surprise that one step further was the sneaky find of two fabulous baskets that I will be using to make gifts for two lovely mothers. Keep your eyes peeled for a post on the completed baskets.
