Last-minute preparations

Geth and I have had a fairly hectic day getting lots of final things sorted before Christmas. We got the car prepped for the Christmas drive, posted a couple of last-minute cards, and braved the supermarket for some supplies. I then spent the afternoon doing a short bit of day job work (hopefully that’s the last thing that will come in!) and baking a pie to share with the family on Christmas Day.

Christmas TV and films watched tonight have included Trev and Simon’s Swing Your Xmas Pants, A Child’s Christmases In Wales, Father Christmas (my childhood favourite) and Santa Claus The Movie (Geth’s childhood favourite). I was meant to be going out to a gig tonight, but I’ve decided to skip it as I’m really tired and I need to drive tomorrow. Anyway, I am enjoying the Christmas films.

Just the Christmas Eve jobs to do and then the celebrations can begin! I’m so looking forward to seeing my family 🙂

Geth at Christmas
Not an OOTD: Geth with his favourite Christmas film plus the Toblerone his mum gave him for Christmas.

Today’s earworm playlist:

Blackbear – ‘Hot Girl Bummer’
Ed Sheeran and Stormzy – ‘Take Me Back To London’
Chris Rea – ‘Driving Home For Christmas’
Slade – ‘Cum On Feel The Noize’
Travis Scott – ‘Highest In The Room’

Decade-plus time warp

A day of getting on with admin and writing jobs today – I’m trying to get everything finished before Christmas. One last day to get stuff sorted tomorrow!

Geth and I are now watching Britain’s Got The Pop Factor (the Peter Kay talent show parody from 2008). It’s become a bit of a Christmas tradition for us (and I can’t believe we first saw it eleven years old now, although of course the jokes have aged a bit).

Christmas compilation CD
Not an OOTD: I vowed not to buy any more music CDs and was in the process of getting rid of them all. Then I got a car with a CD player… Doing a lot of driving this Christmas so have picked up a couple of extra compilations!

Today’s earworm playlist:

Carl Doy – ‘As Time Goes By’
Duran Duran – ‘Falling Down’
Alexander Brandon – ‘Diamondus’
