Last week feslt well and truly Autumnal, but at the same time Christmas is forcing its way into my environment.
We’ve been waking up to frosty cars, and experiencing beautiful sunsets, but at work we’ve been listening to Christmas music, and this weekend we watched the first Christmas film of the season (Krampus!).
Early this week we had some beautiful frosts which were highlighted by clear skies and golden sunrises. I’m lucky to work in a barn conversion surrounded by fields, so we get some epic views of the seasons changing.
The same day’s sunset was something else:
At home things are moving along. We’ve finally taken delivery of our dining table, which means meals are mostly eaten there, whilst we admire the rest of the gorgeous kitchen! It also means I can now host my Share A Meal, which I’ll be talking about again in a blog post soon (but hit the link if you haven’t read the first one yet!).
I’ve finally got a place to put this gorgeous candle I was given last Christmas, and it fits there perfectly!
I’ve also been working on my dressing room/ office space, and pictures are finally going up on the walls.
I don’t know what’s going to go on the other walls yet, but I want to find things organically – things I know will be perfect – so who knows when it’ll be finished. But for now I’m really pleased with this little section of the room.
So, coming into the Christmas season, I’ve already picked up some presents. I’m also looking forward to my office Christmas party, which is right at the start of the month, and then later on in December I’m attending the Blogosphere Christmas Festival, which I’m really excited about.
I’m really eager to decorate our house for its first Christmas, and to see it all lit up AND I’m hoping to meet up with friends and catch up, because it’s been too long! I’m also attending a New Year party (the day before new year’s eve!) which is a party with a difference!
Aside from all of this, I have filmed a new YouTube video (which might be up by the time you read this, so head on over to my channel!) My last video has had over 1.6k views and is going up, so that’s rather nice 🙂
What have you been up to lately – are your decorations up already? How long does it take to get you feeling festive at this time of year? I’d love to know, in the comments!
