Hello, how are you all this week?  If you celebrated Thanksgiving I hope you had a lovely time.

Me?  Well first of all I am happy as it is my birthday!  Today I am 39 years and 36 months old πŸ˜‰

Secondly, I start work on Monday, I’m so pleased to be going back to some form of normalcy and I know I am very lucky as a lot of people are still out of work.  

Not much else has been happening this week apart from my doorbell ringing a lot as the Christmas parcels start to arrive.  I’m planning on putting up my Christmas tree tomorrow to add some colour and sparkle to the house and also because I can’t wait any longer. I mean there is snow on our hills so I am totally justified in putting it up!

I’ve been enjoying watching the second season of The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda is just the cutest!  I’m also enjoying Fear the Walking Dead and Corporate, I never hear any one talking about Corporate, does anyone out there watch it?

Last of all some funny (some sweary) videos below, enjoy and stay safe!

  2. Bah ha ha... I love those voiceovers. πŸ™ƒ

    How are the Nightvale books? I never did finish listening to the podcasts. πŸ€”

    Yay for going back to work. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘✨

    We don't usually put our tree up until the second Saturday in December, but this year has been such shite, I think I'm going to put it up on the first. I think we all need a little extra twinkle right now. πŸŽ„ But no snow! You can keep the snow with you. 😁

    Have a wonderful new week. 🌞

    1. The Nightvale books are really good, I find I’m paying attention to them more than the podcasts!

      I’m sick of snow, we had thundersnow last night, I thought something had exploded it was so loud and also at five am. Now we’ve gales, urgh!

      It makes me happy to have the tree up, it definitely brings the cheer to see it in the window.

      Hope you’ve had a good week!

    1. Thank you so much my lovely! I had a lovely day!

      We are both still extremely young!! I still think I’m 18, the rest of my body disagrees!

      Ready Player One is excellent, the film of it no so much, Ready Player Two looks just as good, I’m enjoying it so far.

      Hope you’ve had a lovely week!

  14. Happy birthday ! Weird year, weird birthday date, that's logical. I love those voice-overs by Jane Godley, so funny, and that accent ! It made me think about that (different, but I laughed so much) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbrqdSMY9o4 ;)

  18. Happy Birthday, Heather πŸ₯³ and good luck with your return to work! My week was okay, mainly just work with the lockdown, looking forward to a bit more freedom next week. Take care and happy reading - Particularly The Lost and Found Bookshop as I have heard good things about that. πŸ™‚

  19. Happy birthday! You were born at the end of November and I was born at the beginning. So I'm just about thirty days older than you. Well, and a few months. Like 264 months.

    Exciting to be going to work. I hope it will be a great (and safe) experience.

    We are hoping to put up our Christmas things today, too. It will certainly make everything look a little more festive.

    Oh, Ready Player Two! And I still need to get to Player One.

    Have a great week, Heather.

    1. If you get a chance to read Ready Player One do give it a try, it’s really good. Ready Player Two is very good so far!

      I like being a November baby!

      Work has been good, it’s nice to be out and about, a change of scenery!

  24. Happy birthday! And good luck with your new job!

    We love The Mandalorian!

    I have friends who put their tree up in October because they wanted something cheerful in 2020. I've ordered a very thin, fairly short tree to fit into our little RV. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow so we should have our decorations up soon too.

    I finally got my library card for our new location so I've requested Giant Days Volume 2. Hopefully I'll get it soon. This library has suspended all late fines through the end of the year though, so who knows when it might show back up?

    I listened to Welcome to Night Vale last year. It's so quirky! I haven't decided if I'll continue with it. I need to tell my sister about it though. It's the kind of thing she would eat up.

    Enjoy your week!

    1. Thanks Jen!

      I’ve seen them up early November but wow, October is early but hey why not, 2020 has been awful and it’s lovely to see the decorations lighting up windows.

      I just finished the Giant Days series, I’m going to miss it, maybe they’ll revisit it from a later point in their timeline.

      I regularly listened to the podcast but then I got out of the habit,when I saw they had books I thought I’d have a better chance with them. I still hear Cecil’s voice when I read it!

  25. Happy birthday again! You share a birthday with my mom. :) I also laughed at "39 and 36 months."

    We put up our decorations last week. Usually I'm a strict "must wait until after Thanksgiving" but this year keeps being the worst so why not.
