Fireworks night last week at Rye was amazing. A huge fire, a noisy parade, a spectacle of sparkly fireworks, tasty crispy chips, mitten covered hand holding, snuggly scarf wearing, muddy wellington boots. Perfection.
I have been busy this week sewing sewing sewing and making Christmas gifts. I am starting to feel organised, and sewing whilst listening to Christmas songs is making me feel Christmassy. Yesterday I popped into town to meet a couple of friends for some festive drinks.
I was casually trying on Turkey shaped hats in Accessorize when Wham's Last Christmas came on, I squealed with happiness and burst into song! This song is my ultimate favourite song. EVER!
I went to Costa for a white hot chocolate with Nicola, and then to Starbucks with Lloyd for an orange chocolate mocha. Mmm.
Because I am making nearly all of my Christmas gifts, it started to feel that I was being very unorganised. So I started sewing and making lists and now I must plan the whole month of December just so I can keep track of my time.
This Saturday is our town's Christmas light switch on. Cheesy Christmas music, Chestnuts, Christmas hot drinks, and a date with Sebastian, my brother and his girlfriend. It will definitely get me feeling festive and wanting to make more gifts. I cannot wait.
What are you doing to feel festive? Is anyone else mainly making Christmas gifts this year? How are you keeping organised?
