My week in pictures #98

Sunday, December 14

(From top left) Flat christmas dinner on Monday evening. A 'make your own' owl door stop for my christmas from my lovely flatmate Gemma. My favourite meatballs and spaghetti for tea as a reward for completing two exams. We put up Scotts christmas tree on Thursday and looking happy in front of it (in our jammies). Today we went to pick up our huge 12 foot christmas tree ready to decorate when I'm home for the holidays on Friday. 
Eekk... Exams started this week with Chemistry on Monday and then Geology on Wednesday. Ironically I've not actually done that much studying... oops!! I felt like I'd done enough and I'm pleased with how both exams went.

Apart from that I've been feeling very festive this week - kick starting Monday evening with a flat christmas dinner. A good roast was just what we needed, the flat was decorated all festively and we just giggled our way through it. After a candy cane hunt, christmas quiz and present opening we chilled out and watched mean girls (christmasy I know).  

On Thursday I went into the centre to meet my cousin and his girlfriend (who are going to have a baby in may!!!). We went for a coffee then looked at some christmas presents for family which included a trip to the disney store. I got the train home with Scott once he had finished work so we could put up the christmas tree at his. On Friday we had an extremely long lie because he'd taken the day off work. In the afternoon we went to a local christmas shop which was so nice with the log fires on but we didn't buy anything. My mum came to pick me up later that night.

Going home this weekend might have been slightly silly knowing my parents are coming to Aberdeen to get me on Thursday but I fancied some chilling time with my mum in front of the fire. I caught up on two episodes of strictly before the show on Saturday night. Why oh why did trixie have to go... I wanted them to win!! 

The only thing we did on Sunday was driving to get our christmas tree. It is up in the big living room now waiting until next weekend when I'm home permanently to be decorated. I'm so exited to be back here for Christmas soon. I'm away to light the fire and maybe start on the Christmas cards. 

Hope all my lovely followers (old and new) are starting to get in the festive spirit.
