This Week #9

We got to go out not once, but twice this week! On Tuesday we went out for a meal with a few of my friends from school who I haven't seen for about two years. It was great to catch up with them, and show Marianna off, of course. It was going so well until she boffed all over herself. Ah, babies.

On Thursday evening I should, technically, have been at my local Labour Party branch meeting (I'm the secretary). But we'd managed to get invites to the opening of the new Cineworld cinema in Newport, so my mum babysat while we went to see the new Steve Jobs film.

So sad to hear about the terrorist attacks in Beirut and Paris this week. :(

☆ READING: January 22nd 1944 issue of Picturegoer magazine.

☆ WRITING: 'I Pay My Council Tax.' Anthony wanted me to write a guest post for his politics blog, The Man Down My Local, because, well, he's too lazy to update it himself. I had no idea what to write at first, but then somebody was complaining to me about their bin not being collected and out came the usual 'why do I bother paying my council tax?' I endeavoured to answer.

WATCHING: Chasing Shadows on ITV catch up. Reece Shearsmith is great in it - and if you do click through to his Wiki, the photo they have up makes the poor bloke look like a serial killer! - but Alex Kingston's floundering act is very annoying.

☆ LISTENING: Hole in the Ground by Bernard Cribbens. I sing it to Marianna, and she just looks on in bemusement.

☆ WEARING: High heels. I wore them both nights we went out, and soon regretted it. Thankfully I had the sense to bring a pair of flats with me on Thursday to change into.

☆ EATING: Plum, pear and apple jam. It's so tasty! It's out of the awesome Christmas Grande Hamper I won from this week.

☆ FEELING: Sociable.

I wrote a post for the Debenhams' Dear Santa blogger competition, and did the #BlogaJob CV challenge. My baby bundle giveaway ended with 825 entries and I've contacted the winner, but you can still enter the new giveaway for Chris Holm's The Killing Kind.

Other accomplishments this week was my first go at joining in with a Twitter chat (#UKbloggers), and hitting 500 likes on my Facebook page. Yay!
