A multi-house, multi-pc approach to One Direction ticket sales meant we managed to get a set of VIP tickets and a set of incredible seats at a less stupid price within 5 minutes of the tickets going on release. A great relief in terms of Cog happiness, a great blow to the bank account. Luckily I managed to sell the 'mistake' buy incredible tickets within 6 minutes of letting my friends know of my predicament. Popular boys!
Automatic Crispy duck night, earlier than usual because of pre mock exams and the stress that will be the run up to Christmas because of them.
cat humiliation that goes with the tree decorating happened too.
traditional Christmas cat fight ensued.
Cog loves unwrapping her 'old friends'.
In the usual lead up to Christmas the wrong gods are hand holding me there, hopefully soon my advent will be less about chocolate and more about preparation for the Christmas festival.
The first candle lit on Advent Sunday is for God’s people, the candle of hope. The second candle is a reminder of the Old Testament prophets, the candle of peace. The third symbolises John the Baptist, the candle of love. The fourth is for Mary the mother of Jesus, the candle of joy. And the last candle, lit on Christmas day, is a symbol of Jesus – the Light of the World.
So many Christmas lights are going up, it's lovely to brighten up the dark winter nights. It's also good for me to occasionally remind myself what they represent - hope, peace, joy and love.
