Let me know if you've done one of these posts in the comments, or if you're going to! xo
I just went back and properly read last years post and it's mad that I've written the exact same thing for some of the words! If I keep thinking the same things maybe I need to make some changes in my life...


  1. I've never done one of these posts before, I've never actually seen one before but I love it!

  2. Oh no. Opening bills is horrible! :o

  3. You should do it! I love reading them and I've only seen a few other bloggers do it and it's a nice change from normal 'tag' posts :) xo

  4. Great post! I'm so excited about Christmas too! How are you finding 1984? I found it a little odd but really enjoyed it! x

  5. Urgh bills, the downside of being an adult. They are never fun. 1984 is one of those books that's been on my to read list for an age and never got around to it. one day, one day!

  6. If you find more hours, let me know! and send me some! I love these posts, I have them roughly scheduled for every two to three months.

    Also, extra chub is comfortable :)
    And bills suck.

  7. They're so nice to read :D I thought I'd only done one recently but it was a whole year ago! Bout time I got this one up!
