Recently I have been…

Hello lovely readers! Today I’m back with a new type of post for this blog. The plan for this week’s post was going to be ‘my favourite books of November’. But life (aka school :D) happened and I ran out of time and inspiration to write up my reviews. So look for that post next week! Instead, this week I’m doing a ‘life-update-type’ post, except instead of covering my whole life, I’ll just cover the last week or so. πŸ˜€ I hope you enjoy this little snapshot into my life right now!

Christmas Cookies(Here’s a random Christmasy picture because why not :D)

Recently I have been…

Reading

~ Idylls of the King

Writing

~ Not much for pleasure, unfortunately. Just a lot of stuff for school. I wrote a rhyming poem for school actually the other day – that was fun! πŸ˜€

Singing

~ The Lion, the Witch and the WardrobeΒ – I watched it just last night, and ohhhh it is good!

Thinking About

~ The future – I need to start applying to colleges in the near-ish future, and so I have to think about scary things like college options and college fees and degree choices. Time is going by so fast and I’m getting too old!

Listening to

~ Prepare him Room – This Sovereign Grace album is SO beautiful and full of amazing truths and I definitely recommend it!

Laughing at

~ My hilarious younger siblings – Β 5 yo sis quote: “Mummy, if people didn’t hear Jesus’ name right, do you think they would think his name was Jamie?” πŸ˜€

~ My family’s attempt at playing a recently acquired didgeridoo (it literally sounds like a dying cow, lol).

Anticipating

    • Yay, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Yes, it is quite a heavy book. But the quality of the writing is unmistakable, and the story is very beautiful… I’ll definitely be reviewing it on an upcoming post! πŸ˜‰

    • Oooh yessss definitely! It’s a pity our gas fire tends to stink the whole house up… πŸ˜€ I might just pass on the fire and stick with the reading and corny movies. πŸ˜›
