December already?! Arg. That means I’ve been in my new flat for 6 months and there are STILL boxes everywhere. How long is unpacking meant to take?
Anyway. Enough of unpacking tedium… here’s 5 things I’m looking forward to before the end of 2o1o:
Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella at Sadler’s Wells next Sunday!
With Cinderella, I’ll be completing a Matthew Bourne hat trick, which started with Dorian Gray, and then followed with Edward Scissorhands. And I love love LOVE Sadler’s Wells. The fairylit trees outside make it look so beautiful.
Eating mince pies…
Christmas time at home.
As gorgeous as it looks, the snow last Christmas was a massive pain. A white Christmas is only good if you live in a house the size of the Griswalds in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and all your family are coming to stay. Whereas in reality you’ve got to cancel half of your plans in Edinburgh because the Forth Bridges are closed. Fail.
Decorating my Christmas tree!
The first Christmas tree in a new flat is very exciting business. We should get it on Wednesday… although due to lack of space (the space being taken up by unpacked boxes) Olly wants to get a smaller 3ft tree. Is Christmas still Christmas if you’re not dwarfed by the tree?
