A month in the life: November 2016

Hey, how are you? I can’t quite believe it’s December tomorrow, not sure where this month or this year has gone! So with that in mind, I’m back today with a look back over the last month and what I’ve been up to.

Ah November, right at the end of the month did I catch that festive feeling. Just a little bit, but certainly our weekend away and talking about Christmas did the trick. I think we may even put our tree up this weekend. November was the month we celebrated our 4th anniversary together, and marked 12 months until our wedding day – I have a feeling the next year might fly by! It’s also the month I resigned from my current job after 7 years, so the new year will bring a new job. Eeeek!


A month in the life - November 2016


Enjoying: Tidying up the house. There’s something about this time of year where I like to have a spring clean; something about a new year, fresh start kind of feeling I think. There have been runs to the charity shop, rubbish chucked and finding proper homes for bits and pieces.

Making: I’m a woman on a mission at the moment, determined to finish some outstanding projects before the end of the year. The 100daysofcrochet blanket will be finished this weekend and the final Frosted Pumpkin pattern arrives on Friday. You can see more of what I’m working on here.

Planning: Christmas! Less than a month to go now so I’m making plans to see loved ones over the festive break. I’m also finishing up at my current job, so that’s been a big focus as I handover my role ready for a new challenge in 2017!

Watching: Obviously I had to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – got to say I was a bit disappointed; it seemed to miss that GG magic and the end was infuriating. Other than that, I’ve started on The Crown and I’m really enjoying it. If you like a historical, period drama, it’s definitely for you.

Visiting: York. We celebrated our 4th anniversary together with a weekend away in York; we ate really well, visited York Minster, did a little Christmas shopping and enjoyed a mini break away. I highly recommend York, there’s lots to do.

Thanks for reading – let’s see what the final month of the year has in store…
