i hope you all had a beautiful time at christmas! fun was had in my house. on christmas eve i watched lots of different panto on telly and made cookies with my sister. then i woke up early christmas morning and opened a big stocking left from santa, with lots of goodies. then got dressed and went downstairs and opened presents from my sister and gave presents to my mum and dad. then waited for my nan and grandad to come round. we had lunch while listening to top of the pops at christmas. after lunch we got to open all our presents, and i got some wonderful gifts. one of my amazing presents was my labbit!! i have been looking for one of these for about 2 years!! and i got one for christmas. he is so cute! i have no ideas for a name yet...but he did enjoy my cookies!after a long night of food, doctor who telly special, family, party hats, gifts, board games, chocolate and other fun it was time to go to sleep. when i woke up in the morning it was fun to relax and hang out with my family. then later on in the day we went to my nan and grandad's for boxing day. we had a wonderful dinner and more presents!very odd presents were given to me...and i love it!! haha.

let me sign for you

Christmas at home. i was so happy to be home...yet i feel so sad. i think i am all over the place at the moment. feeling happy then feeling rubbish, it sucks. Christmas is nearly here!! lots of fun to look forward to! i cannot wait!! i will get to spend some time with my sister before she goes back to work. present giving. baking. friends and family coming to visit. Christmas movies. oh so much to look forward to!
i went to see twilight for the second time last night...oh how i love Robert. my friend gave me a twilight poster, which made me smile so much. i am hoping that i still get the twilight soundtrack for Christmas..i am in love with Robert's singing. i think he has a wonderful voice.
i really wanna see robert's movie; How to Be. it looks amazing, you must watch the trailer if you have not already seen it. it looks like my kind of movie, and Robert is in it, so that helps. the film is about a 20-something guy (Art) who gets dumped by his girlfriend and then moves back home with his parents. and then he hits a quarter-life crisis. Art uses inheritance money to indulge in retail and new age therapies only to end up enlisting the help of an eccentric self-help guru, Dr. Ellington. its about Art's painfully funny journey to define his existence. its at american film festivals at the moment, and i hope we will be able to see it over here very soon. :D
i also got tagged by everone need an anchor... and i will do that on the next post. :)

i am looking forward to movie night with friends tonight..i think we are going to watch transformers. i would like to have a mini movie night every week with my flatmates. we all are very busy with uni, but i think it would be nice to set aside a few hours a week to all get together and watch a movie. i think i will ask them what they think. :)
The tea drinking english rose has asked people to post their home comforts...please do it on your blog, and let her know!!! but these are mine. my books!!!- books, magazines, pictures, and sort of collection of these things. books/magazines i always feel are moments in time, to keep forever. my jewellery- i always have to wear some jewellery, i love love love!! i couldn't live without my jewellery collection.
