1. We had our first day of snow this week! I love snow, although I prefer it on days where I don't have to go to work! It was so pretty in the sun with the autumn leaves.

2. The cold weather gave me an excuse to buy new slippers. I have a bit of an odd obsession with slippers, and I wouldn't dare to count how many pairs I have, but I couldn't resist these little fluffy, sparkly, granny looking ones!

3. I know some of you love Doctor Who and this week has been great for us fans. An Adventure In Space And Time was brilliant, really interesting and moving.

4. I've finally finished my Bondathon with Die Another Day. OK, so I didn't quite do them in order, but I can now get cracking with the books, which are in a totally different order anyway! Where one "athon" ends...

5. ...another begins! Allan is a Star Trek fan and he was very happy when I said I wanted to watch them all. We're just doing movies to start with and our Trekathon began this week with Star Trek:The Motion Picture.

6. I picked these beautiful roses from my garden before the cold gets them. Can't believe they're still blossoming in November!

7. Back to Doctor Who, how AMAZING was The Day Of The Doctor?! I went to see it in 3D at the cinema and the atmosphere was great! Loads of people made an effort to dress up and the place was buzzing with excitement. I was speechless afterwards!

8. I was pretty much the same after The Hunger Games: Catching Fire! Another brilliant movie and I can't wait for the next two. I'll have to dig out my copy of Mockingjay cos it's too long to wait!

9. Have you tried Dairy Milk with Daim? It's my new favourite! I know it all sticks in your teeth, but it's totally worth it!


  1. I made the mistake of seeing The Hunger Games at a crowded midnight showing, ending up in one of the front rows. I cannot enjoy a movie from such a close range and I am not as young as I used to be ... I was SUPER tired. Not going to make that mistake with Catching Fire. It may be a couple of weeks before I actually see it but I will see it on my terms so that I can enjoy it.

  2. I didn't even know dr who was in cinemas! I liked the episode but as with most dr who episodes, it left more questions than anwsers! :) x
