I solemnly swear I am up to s{no}w good

After a lot of last minute shopping last year (once I'd finally dug myself out of the house) and one or two presents that didn't actually appear until January, I am 110% committed to having my Christmas shopping done before 1st December this year. So who's with me?  Go on, say it...

I solemnly swear to:
Sip mulled wine, 
Listen to carols
Enjoy the festive season
And put my woolly sock clad feet up in December.
No shopping (unless it's for fun or me).

And on that note, I am heading into town for a spot of festive shopping. So who's organised? Does anyone have all their shopping done? Presents wrapped? Cards bought/made/written???

10 Things in November

Another 10 things you may or may not know about me:
  1. I love chick lit. I am currently reading Cafe Tropicana by Belinda Jones.
  2. I love reality TV. My recent favourites are Big Brother, The X Factor and The Bachelor.
  3. I have a little boy who is three years old.
  4. The first time I went on a plane I was 10 years old and on my own.
  5. I have been dying my hair blonde for so long I'm not entirely sure what my natural hair colour would be if I let the blonde grow out completely.
  6. I once travelled from Stirling to London on a freezing cold bus to protest about university tuition fees.
  7. I am addicted to Coke (Cherry Coke being my all time favourite).
  8. I am taking part in a 'Twiathlon'.
  9. I order chips and curry sauce and call it a 'Chinese takeaway' (in my defence I always order prawn crackers!).
  10. I'm 32 years old (I think!). I have got to THAT age where I question what age I am on a regular basis.
Every month, we blog ten things on the tenth.  Your ten things can be absolutely anything you feel like sharing.  Pop on over to Shimelle's blog and link to your specific blog post so we can all come read your own list of ten.
