Today was definitely my day for shopping, unlike Sunday. The shops were busy, just the way I like ’em, but they weren’t ‘can’t-move-an-inch-hurry-up-huge-lines’ busy. I had a very pleasant shopping experience and managed to get just about everything I needed! Plus I even got a few items cheaper than expected- this bargain hunter was very happy.
Since I’m also a present wrapping enthusiast I’ve also managed to finally select all my gift wrapping, ribbons and tags. My colours this year are silver, purple and gold.
With more presents still to come and be wrapped!
Yesterday I did mention I needed a recommendation from my mum’s Jodi Picoult library but by the time I got all the comments I had already picked another book. I’m sorry but I couldn’t wait any longer- Jodi was calling for me. Rest assured that if I get through it as quick as The Pact I’ll be moving onto your recommendations sooner than later. So what am I currently reading?
House Rules. The twist described on the back of the book intrigued me as did the fact that the boy had Asperger’s Syndrome. Being a soon-to-be teacher I have and will come across children with this, so I was intrigued to read about that a little more too.
I know I’m a few days late but I feel compelled to not overlook but to write about the tragedy that happened at Sandy Hook school in Newtown. My heart, love, thoughts, hugs, prayers and strength goes out to all those who are suffering and involved. I can’t even imagine the pain and it hurts me to think about it to be honest. I’m not a very good writer so I don’t want to say too much. There are those who have managed to capture my feelings and thoughts, and were able to express it better than I ever could. I wish to express that by linking these posts up for you to read as you wish.

Wherever you are today and whatever you’re doing I hope you squeeze a little harder next time you hug someone, give them extra kisses and pester them with ‘I Love You’s’. And hopefully this will help remind you what this Christmas season is really about.
What extra gesture will you do to show someone you love and care for them? What book are you reading at the moment?
