our weekend & looking forward to christmas
Last week was pretty great. I finally got a new phone, some friends got great news, I planned out my upcoming trip to America (finally sorted out train tickets and rides from the airport, amongst other things) and our electricity providers (who have been overcharging us for a year) finally reduced our prices and are sending us a refund for the several hundred pounds they owe us.
Today I'm going to look for some little presents to bring my young cousins as Christmas presents when I visit. It will be the first time I go into some of the tourist shops by the seafront, so I don't really know what they have, but if it's all really terrible, I'll just get some chocolate. Everyone with taste buds prefers British/European chocolate, right?
I also got sucked into a world of Christmas decorations and ideas on Pinterest. It might be a little early, but I don't care. I love savoring the lead-up to Christmas, so I'm absolutely going to. We can't really afford a lot of decorations, but we got some as presents last year and I'm so excited to get them out again. I'm forcing myself not to do it until I get back from my trip, though, so I'm really just living vicariously through Pinterest pictures.
