15 November 2018: 40 Sleeps
One thing I hate is things being counted in terms of "sleeps".

14 November 2018: The Power of Now
I'm trying to be more spiritual, so when this was recommended to me recently I decided to order it and see what the fuss was about.

13 November 2018: Tropical
This was the perfect choice to quench my thirst tonight.

12 November 2018: Christmas Lights
They're up... already.

11 November 2018: Cath Kidston
I was shopping in Cath Kidston yesterday and debating buying a new bag so when a song I like came on (Nerina Pallot - "Man Didn't Walk on the Moon") I took that as a sign.

10 November 2018: Memorial
There was a memorial service today for the Critical Care Units at the Freeman and RVI. Dad's name was being read out during the service so I joined Ali, Steph and Katy to light candles in his memory. It was a nice service, although I can't help thinking Dad would be wondering what I was doing there instead of watching the match!

9 November 2018: Book Launch
One of Paul's friends was launching her new book tonight so I went to the library to see what it was all about. The book is on the history of shopping in Newcastle so it was fun to remember trips into town from when I was younger.

8 November 2018: The Burning Wire
I'd forgotten that I had this Jeffery Deaver book on my Kindle app so it was a nice surprise to find it the other day.

7 November 2018: Marshmallow Tree
A trip to the hairdressers was also an opportunity to collect a prize Mam won in a raffle there recently: this tree of marshmallows.

6 November 2018: On Tour
I went out "on tour" on my rollerblades and ended up going round Leazes Park. It was fun, but I'm mega unfit.

5 November 2018: Huffy Cat
I got the impression Carson was in a huff at not being allowed out for the third day in a row. It was for the best, with it being Bonfire Night.

4 November 2018: 90s TV
There's quite a bit of 90s TV on Netflix and I almost chose Super Mario, but settled on Absolutely Fabulous.

3 November 2018: Cineworld
Me and Ali went to see the new Halloween film at Cineworld in The Gate. I was a bit disappointed with the film, but it was good to do something different and have a couple of scoops of ice cream.

2 November 2018: Greggs Window
Fenwick's Window was unveiled today and Greggs had the marvellous idea of reversing their sign so it reflected in the window across the street.

1 November 2018: Indian Special
I love a million course special from the local Indian takeaway. Putting it in a dish with sides is just sensible for a sloppy person like me.
