How are you welcoming in 2012?

I never do anything for New Year and I really wish I did. One good thing about 2012: I'll be 18 in December so it'll be off to town hopefully! I think I'm going to do my review of 2011 tomorrow. Oops should have been in 2011 :/ Anyway have a good one! :)

Christmas doesn't feel the same without snow :S

I'm so used to there being snow on the ground or sometimes there is the occasional snowflake that comes down. But nope not this year. It feels really weird that Christmas day is tomorrow when the weather is not even that cold. The weather is completely messed up at the minute - it wasn't even that hot in August, freezing in October and November and now not that cold on Christmas Eve.  Then there's some countries that never ever have snow because it's summer for them - yep Australia I'm talking to you. I can't even imagine that. It being summer when Christmas is so weird for me. Okay, I'm going to stop with the strangeness element.

Anyway, I want to wish you all a happy happy Christmas and hope Santa brings all the things you wished for ;) Here's a little Christmas song to get you more in the mood - hope it works for me!

The Run Up To Christmas

I've been busy busy busy this week, which is surprising. I broke up from sixth form on Friday, woo! But I've got to go back on January 3rd, which is pretty crap. I was finally 17 on Tuesday :D I had my first driving lesson ever :S I didn't feel stressed or nervous because I didn't really know what to expect apart from being in the hot seat. I wasn't terrible but I'm looking forward to doing my next lesson.

I've actually just booked my theory test for January. It's really soon but the test is changing for the worse at the end of January, so my driving instructor said it would be best to do it now. The Highway Code that I ordered the other day and it came today - seriously it's so boring! and, I'm sick of reading it already but I'm going to revise, revise, revise so hopefully I don't have to resit a harder test :/

Yesterday, me and my friends went to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. It's actually really good! I loved the first one and this one is a great sequel. I'm shit at reviews so I'm not going to even try and do one and I don't want to give away any spoilers. And, my meal at Frankie & Benny's was very yummy :P

I can't believe it's Christmas eve in two days. Woahh! Are you's excited for Christmas? This year has flown over but I'm starting to look forward to the upcoming festive days a lot more. Shame there is no snow at the minute. Having it in December makes me feel really christmassy but I hate it in January. 'Cos to be quite honest January is the most depressing month ever!

It's My Birthday! :D

I'm 17 today!!!!

I've got a two hour driving lesson in 15 minutes - God help me! I'm going to an Italian's tonight with my family. Then tomorrow I'm off to see Sherlock Holmes 2 and go to Frankie & Benny's with my friends. I'll let you know how it all goes soon! :)

Oopsy Daisy

I feel pretty shocking not posting for ageesss and also not reading any posts. So I'm reading all of the posts I've missed from my fave blogs now. The truth is I have no idea what to post about any more. My life pretty much revolves around sixth form, homework, revision for tests, an hour long bus journey to college and another hour back and catching up on TV programmes. So, before I leave you once again, here's Little Mix's new single after they won the X Factor on Sunday night. I'm so pleased they won, and finally a group won! I love the song too. I have a post I've been meaning to do for ages and still haven't got round to doing it. I promise I'll have a few more proper ones very soon as I break up for the xmas holidays on Friday! :D

Ist of...

It's December 1st - Christ, (no pun intended) where has this year gone? It has went so much quicker than last year and that pretty much zoomed by. This year has been a pretty big year for me, in loads of different ways and I am 17 this month! Woo! Anyway this day means:

* 1st door of advent calendar :D
* Xmas decorations go up
* Countdown to my birthday starts - 19 days to go! (even though I'm not doing anything special)
* Countdown to Christmas day starts - 24 days to go!

So in celebration of this little day, I'm doing 1st place (of everything I can think of at the moment) of things for the festive period. Join in too on your blog or in the comments below. I would love to see what you choose :)

Christmas song.... Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas
This song has such a lovely meaning to it and is definitely one of my top favourites. Some people don't like the modern one but I do as well!

Christmas advert.... Coca Cola
This may be an old advert but it never gets old for me. Every single year I've loved it. And, the truth is when this first comes on the TV you know it's nearly Christmas.

Chocolate.... Terry's Chocolate Orange
This is seriously one of the best types of chocolate to eat year round but especially at Christmas time!
Favourite board game.... frustration
This was quite hard but I love this game. I love a game of monoploy too though!
Christmas film.... The Snowman + The Grinch
I absolutely adore these films. I used to watch The Snowman year round when I went to my grandmas and Walking In The Air (also another fave song) would send me to sleep! So that's why I have the song by Aled Jones above. This film is so good and I think it's amazing how it has no words. And, The Grinch is just brilliant :)

Favourite part of xmas day.... Christmas dinner (well it's lunch but I call it dinner :D)
It's a Sunday dinner with extra food - and an extra twist: you get to pull crackers woo!

Favourite drink.... Bucks Fizz
I love this with my christmas dinner. Sorry but I ain't a fan of baileys :(
Can you think of any other festive things? Let me know, and I'll do them too :P
