Bookish (And Not So Bookish) Thoughts

Wednesday, 20 December 2017

This is a weekly blog meme hosted by Bookishly Boisterous (link here) where you can write about anything that's happening in your life, book related or not!

1. I'm so glad it's finally the Christmas break. The last semester at University seems to have lasted years and years! It's so nice to not have any work to do, I can relax without feeling guilty about all the work I should be doing!

2. I went back to work last Wednesday and Thursday. I'm always slightly concerned that things will have changed dramatically at work and I won't be sure what I'm doing but nothing had changed so I'm able to slip back in without any great hassle! 

3. We've had lots of snow over the last week, but the temperature has fluctuated a bit, and has turned into the snow into ice. The pavements and our drive is a sheet of solid ice. I basically ice skated my way to work this week, but I didn't fall... yet!!

4. On Saturday my parents and I took a trip to purchase fake floral wreaths for the family graves. Its always a mixed experience, its sad to visit the graves, but the wreaths always brighten them up so much and there's something so cheery about the bright flowers that makes me feel much better about the visit. 

5. On a slightly more cheery note, we also picked up our Christmas tree on Sunday. We always purchase a real tree, and always visit the same farm to purchase it from. Its a beautiful fir tree that makes the whole room smell delightfully of pine needles and festivity! I love once we buy the Christmas tree, it makes the room look much more festive, and I always get more into the Christmas feeling when the tree is decorated!!

6. This weeks tv/movies:
  • John Wick- I watched this at the weekend with my parents. It was a good action movie, quite bloody, it had a body count of about 120 kills during the movie, but it filled in a few hours!!
  • Criminal Minds Season 2- I'm re-watching this at the moment, I love Criminal Minds, and I forgot just how good the first few seasons are!
  • Manhunt: Unabomber Season 1- I just started watching this on Netflix, I've finished episode 1 and so far I'm really enjoying it. I love crime tv shows with a psychological element, and this one has that in bucket loads.
