The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime was brilliant and if anybody is wondering should they/shouldn't they, then you definitely should. I love going to the theatre, it's just so expensive that it has to be a once in a while treat which I suppose makes it more special. But if I had my way and the funds I'd go every week to see something.
I treated myself to a new jigsaw today. Thought this might get me in the festive mood. It's actually 2 x 1,000 piece puzzles. The first puzzle is the picture on the box. The second puzzle, by design, has no picture to follow, it's just a case of piecing it together and seeing what it is.
I've managed to find two Christmassy chocolate advent calendars for Amy and Thomas, but I'm still struggling with a traditional Nativity one. I even tried Waterstones and Oxfam but they didn't have any so I'm going to order one on line.
And I've started making a 'Sadie Star' to hang over my Nativity scene. I thought Away in Manager was pretty apt. I can't find a wooden star the size I want so I'm just doing it on a piece of white card but I'm going to try and make it stand out somehow. I think hung up against the wall it will work just fine.
We've been to Mums tonight for our weekly visit. No matter how hard Mark has tried to think of something we need to do tomorrow evening, we're actually free which means we can go to our first dancing lesson. I'm not that cruel that I'd make him go again if he hated it, but I want him to at least give it a go.
Brace yourself for photos of bruised and battered toes on Friday.
