This might just be rambling to myself, but does anyone love to have a candle burning? I have one that sits on my windowsill and brings just a little bit of extra light into my life in the evenings.
I think however that I am going to need to find it something new to sit in as it is currently in the base of a fondue set!!
I hope no one else has been sitting in bed all day feeling ill like I have :( but I think that the worst of it is behind me now so lets hope a nice sleep is 
 
 
I was reading Monica's blog this morning and came across the naughty or nice gadget she linked to. I stuck in my name and it came up with this
so are you naughty or nice??

I spent the weekend doing revision for my exams this week, not so fun but had a couple of good meals

a vegetarian chilli that used carrots instead of kidney beans!!
a risotto that has a parmesan and lemon sauce

both were really tasty and just what i needed to keep warm this weekend

hope you weekend was just as tasty :)
 
 
These past few days have been spent furiously working in the library trying my best to revise for an exam. Luckily I have my friend from America to dsitract me on Skype resulting in us doing this...
So apparently I have hair like a Stegosaurus and my friend has a tiny nose!! Hope your day has been a little bit more productive than mine :) Hope you have an amazing weekend
 
 
I just got this awesome email from my step-dad and it has got me really really excited for christmas...
I don't know about you but decorating the Christmas tree with all my family sounds so awesome!! How do you decorate for Christmas?
 
 
I have my last written assignment of the year to hand in tomorrow and as per usual I have left it to the last minute. However no one wants to hear me complain about it so here is my real question, 

Does anyone else have and lucky item for writing assignments?

Today I have written my whole assignment wearing sunglasses. Inside. When the sun set at about 4pm. Weird I know :s 
Hope everyone has a good Tuesday!
 
 
I've been constructing my Christmas playlist for this year and was thinking it would be fun to find out 
What is your favourite Christmas song?
I think mine has to be Mariah Carey - All I Want For Christmas Is You. So goooooooddd!!

In an unrelated note I was just sitting doing some work this evening when a pretty heavy hail storm started outside my window, this was the only good photo I captured of my housemate. 
 
 
I've had a couple of big deadlines for class recently and don't want to bore you with them so here are some of the things I've been doing in an attempt not to die of boredom...
1. How to waste time when writing an essay? Pretend to be in a rap band from the 90's.
2. Not sure how to transport your bird around at Christmas? Duct tape his cage shut and hope no one asks too many questions...
3. Don't want to starting doing work at all? Go out to the countryside and pretend your bag is Simba from the Lion King (also known as 3 days hiking with your life on your back for fun!).
4. Want to feel a bit more Christmas spirit and cheer? Cut up your housemates gossip magazines and paperchain your room in the evenings. (And yes I hang my towel over my bike to dry it!!)

I think though it might be time to write the work I've been putting off!!


Any one else have some work avoiding techniques? Or even better ways to motivate yourself to work?
