Holidays Are Coming!

You can tell it's the run down to Christmas when:

1 - Christmas specials are all over the TV
2 - I get excited by the single digits for Sleeps To Santa
3 - I watch my Christmas movies: The Grinch and The Santa Clause
4 - I make my family watch the reruns of the ITV Christmas pantomimes. Again.

I'm sure there are plenty more, like singing along to the Coca Cola advert and having Christmas songs stuck in your head. My point is, I woke up this morning and it took me only a few minutes to realise that it is exactly one week til Christmas!

And like the child I am, I got ridiculously excited.

Later today, I am going to sit down with The Boyfriend and watch The Grinch. And all this week, the pantomimes are on at half 5 in the evening, so I know what I'm doing!

On Tuesday, I am getting together with some of my friends from sixth form, who I haven't seen since the summer, and we are having a Christmas meal in a local pub, which should be good fun. At least, I really hope it will be, because they was a lot of drama trying to organise it. But let's not get into that; I do not wish to spoil my Christmas mood with bitching.

In case I don't talk again beforehand, I wish you all a Happy Christmas and a good winter holiday. <3

Remember the time we stole the whole day?

I should probably be finishing off my essay or cleaning my room or doing something productive but for several reasons, I simply do not have the energy. The main reason is for the last few days I have been suffering from a cold. This has led me to realise something... well actually two things. One, my immune system sucks. And two, I get sick when I have work to do.

This time, I have an essay due in on Tuesday. I finished it this morning, all 2500 words, it just needs editing and printing off. And luckily, I have had most of the past week off to write it. Which is actually quite fortunate because last Monday, I caught a cough. Then Wednesday, I woke up with a sore throat. Then yesterday I suffered the whole day with a running nose. Now it's Saturday and I have the whole shebang!

This sort of thing has happened to me before. Last year over Easter I had two 2000 word essays to write in a week and a half, with the flu. Good track record, huh?

But I'm pretty sure you don't want to hear all this. What I do want you hear about, if you haven't already, is Alex Day's new song 'Forever Yours'. I am a little bit obsessed with it. Can't help it, it is so good! Anyway, here's Charlie's video for it - stupidly funny! And on Nerimon's channel, he plea's to help him get it to Christmas Number One, so I am spreading the word! Yep, to all five of my readers...
