Looking Forward

Hello all, I bet you thought I'd been abandoning you - I guess in some ways I was. I've enjoyed the past week being away from the computer, although my iPhone was never too far away. Actually I bet you didn't even miss me did you? :-)

This bell is a wonderful symbol of the spirit of Christmas. Just remember, the true meaning of Christmas lies in your heart.

It feels like Christmas

It's really this week... CHRISTMAS! Oh oops I actually shouted that bit as I typed it! Ha! What is it about Christmas that brings out the big kid in me? EVERYTHING!

The most significant relationship of all

The most significant relationship of all is the one between you and you. Don't ever forget that!

Grief is a most peculiar thing

Grief can hit you in many different ways and there is no order of how it will play out for you. You need to somehow adapt and deal with the death whilst overcoming the loss, sadness and shock. On Tuesday night we were told that Spurs boy's friend (Will) had died suddenly.

Gingerbread men

I love the smell of making gingerbread. It's one of my favourite Christmas smells. So here's my tried and tested gingerbread men recipe and remember the thickness of the dough determines how your "men" will turn out!

Happiness is an unexpected hug

I love hugs. Big or small, I love hugs. They can be from your loved one, family, friends, whoever. They just make me smile and feel happy. The best ones are the unexpected ones; the "just because" ones.

All I want is you

So if you've been in the UK this past week you will have noticed Coronation Street celebrated it's 50th anniversary. If you didn't... where have you been?

A Fantasy Job

Another random blog from me - but I'm guessing you might be getting used to it by now :-) So anyway in a light hearted conversation with Spurs boy over what jobs we would do if we didn't have our current ones, it turns out I would like a job as a food critic!

Christmas Memories

I love Christmas and all the memories that it can bring. The above bauble was given to me by Father Christmas who came to visit my School when I was about six, the bauble was made by his helpers in his workshop (later I found out it was made by some school helpers, one of them was my Mum!) This bauble is always the first that I put on my Mum's Christmas tree when I go to help decorate the tree.

Dear Santa, can I have my tweets back?

Dear Santa

Now you will know I've been a good girl this year after my good report from work and Spurs boy :-) So apart from the long list of perfumes, clothes and shoes that I want for Christmas I wondered if you could help with the return of my tweets.

Sarah Loves.... Glee

Yes I know it's hugely embarrassing for me to admit that I love Glee, but I do. In theory I shouldn't like it; the cheesy songs, the over the top storylines and well did I mention it's really cheesy.

Lazy Sundays

The recent snow meant that Spurs boy's football match was postponed and meant we could have a super lazy Sunday yesterday. We were at the first of a few Christmas parties on Saturday night and I had got slightly "merry" shall we say! Then I stayed up till 3am to watch some cricket (I've seen more than I imagined I would be able to stay up for!)

Have a little patience...

I've always been tech savvy and there are few things that baffle me with computers. Most things that annoy and baffle me are way beyond my control though, sites such as facebook, tumblr and even blogger have become my recent ranting ground.

Visit your neighbours

I know I blogged about how much I love snow, and I still do. Just don't forget to think about those who find this weather too difficult to get out and about. Yesterday Spurs boy and I made the trip to visit his grandparents and we made sure we got their shopping done and made sure their heating was still working etc.

Why did I say that?

I know you've all done it. You've all said something to someone and then straight away wished you could take it back. You can't take it back. Those are the words that hurt and you said them to someone you care about.
