Oh 'tis the season - to be jolly, to go the wrong way down a one way system, to be offered an eye test on Christmas eve! about NO!

Sorry there's been no picture, but once again my laptop decided to give up, as soon as the internet was turned off, so is in the process.

Dad, you did reconise me, but didn't say much about my hair!!

The First of the 'lasts'....

There's a time in your life when you will do 'lasts'. Today that kinda hit me. As a house we've had our last christmas meal, which was good. Today was the last time I would tell the Christmas story to the pre-schoolers. Having done it three years in a row I have got very used to it, and they have got used to me. They sang me a christmas song, which was brilliant and I gave them chocolates! I cried on the way home - how sad am I?

One other thing happened today. Our landlord came over to fix a few things (very efficient!) and asked about Henry. When I told him that we were engaged he almost had a heart attack, as did I to his reaction! So he left with a smile on his face, he always enjoys seeing us!!

Christmas Dinner

One of four! The first was today, with my housemates, and it was gorgeous! Well done to Alex for cooking the turkey perfectly and bringing it altogether before henry had to leave! It was wonderful, I don't normally agree with using packets of food but this was good! Aunt Bessie, saviour for students!
The second one is happening on thursday with the girls from my course, if I can book it! The third is on sunday, with fusion, we're having X factor stylee kareoke, for which I am doing drinks (non-alcoholic) and the final one is on Christmas day with my famil and a very special guest - Henry :D. Oh and I'll add the last one on Boxing day, with close family, and Henry!

Yeay for Chirstmas!

21 is an amazing age to be, we're pretty much all there at the moment. It has it's stresses but thats all part of life, and you deal with it in your own way! We tend to deal with it by celebrating a birthday....

The cake I made, with a little help from Alex... A mississippi mud pie that, although a little heavy, went down a treat!

Here's a pretty good place! God said Wow at the same time I did, just as I walked on to campus, and saw the chapel in all its glory!

From a Different Point of View

I attended a very interesting lecture today. It was on the narrative of Joseph. I walked to the lecture singing every Joseph song I could remember.

Joseph is portrayed in the musical as being picked on by his brothers, but having done a course in the whole of Genesis, it looks very different if you read it with a little knowledge! In Chapter 37v3 it says about Joseph giving a bad report of the sons of the maidservants. Is he being deceptive, because he knows he's favourite, or is he telling the truth? Jacob's past isn't all that pure. Looking back at Chapter 27, Jacob poses as he brother to get his inheritance, after feeding Isaac! You can learn a lot about someones character by looking at their father! Next time you come across this story, look at it from a different point of view, you will be very surprised!

We also went out as a house last night for the first time in ages. We went out as builders and got lots of offers to paint student houses and do a bit of plumbing, surprisingly I was the only one who made it to lectures today! Bless them all!

What a weekend

Luton was really good, going home was good too. I got to talk about weddings all weekend, from chocolate fountains to dresses! (Sorry mike for boring you silly on saturday!) I managed to get everything I wanted except the thing I actually wanted, now I have to buy wrapping paper for christmas, with just proves how dim I acutally am.

Lectures and Lisa tomorrow. It's diane's birthday and we're in full preparation mode at the moment. We're dressing up as builders, and I will have photos of everything by the end of the week for you!!

Back I go!! There are four places I'm very familiar with now, home, cheltenham, luton and malvern. Spending the weekend in luton without my sister is going to be really weird. I've almost got no one to follow round like sheep for a couple of days, for the first time I'll be Henry's fiancee rather than Karen's sister! WEIRD! It's going to be a lot of fun though, cos I get to go home while I'm over that side of the country. I'm going to see if the magic fairy still lives at number 24!

Saturday is going to be a long day, but a fun one too! I've got clothes and wrapping paper to pick up - all related to christmas in some way!

I'm enjoying Advent, its been a lot of fun so far. Yes I have finished my Christmas shopping, so I can enjoy the reason for the season now, with only my dissertation hanging over me!
