This Week #12


Really haven't felt well this week. I did a blog post on Monday about the change in Welsh organ donation law, and that was about my greatest achievement 'til Thursday when I went to town and got my hair cut. They took more off than I wanted, as usual, but I did get it thinned out a lot which is making life easier.

I had advice surgery on Saturday, then Anthony and I went to see my granddad perform with Cwmbran Male Voice Choir at Cwmbran Stadium. My mum and dad had Marianna overnight so when we got back we had a McDonalds and watched the Dr Who finale. It was, like most of this series, disappointing. We need more Strax, less dragged out boo-hooing!


Cheerz magnets
I won £20 credit for Cheerz so I bought a set of photo magnets and lots of photo prints - they're Polaroid style, and you can even get little captions on them. The one in the picture says: 'Marianna is not amused.' They joined some freebies and my brother's holiday present from Jamaica on the fridge.


☆ READING: Picture Show magazine - this week's scan is from May 1948. I've listed it and about 100 other magazines and comics on eBay. (I know, I know, shameless hinting there!)

☆ WRITING: A post about the Titanic / Olympic switch conspiracy theory.

WATCHING: Christmas movies, check out my 25 Days of them.

☆ LISTENING: Boys Aloud. They were at the concert on Saturday and I was really impressed so I checked out some of their other stuff.

☆ WEARING: New shoes - my mum said she was fed up of seeing me in my old battered flats and bought me a new pair because she's the best.

☆ EATING: Meat stuffing. I've been helping Anthony on his quest to taste test all the supermarket's offerings. Marks & Sparks are in the lead at the moment.

☆ FEELING: Sick. :(


I've not joined in much this week - no linkies or anything! I did review Shepherd Miniatures though, and post a round up of my November Wins in addition to the posts already mentioned.





Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

  3. Trying out different types of stuffing sounds like the kind of mission I could definitely get on board with.
    Literally every post I have read this evening has mentioned hair cuts! I think the universe is trying to tell me something...

    1. Hehe, it really is a good mission - I must have tried 5 different types in the last week! The only worry is I'll be sick of it by the time Christmas rolls around.. It sounds like a message. ;) x

  5. Oh you've got to love a decent pair of new flats, whoever bought them, but you can beat your good old comfys can you? Those pictures are really cute. My sister got me a few of them as part of a gift but she couldn't remember where she got them from, now I know! Hoping you don't get sick of stuffing before the festive period! #KCACOLS

    1. That's it - even though they had seen better days, they were very comfy. Still the new ones look a lot better! :) I'm really pleased with the prints. My nan keeps nagging / reminding me that she wants recent photos of the baby, so I can give some to her too now.
