Merry Christmas!

No more posts from me until the New Year as having a blogging break for Christmas! The weekend will be spent preparing for the big day (and next week will be spent recovering from it!).

Have a lovely Christmas everyone and see you in 2007. x

I wish I could think of something else...

But there's only one thing on my mind right now. Every time I see a police car go past or I hear a helicopter I think "Have they found another one?" I hate being so scared in my little sleepy part of the world. I'm not going to write about the details, you can read all about it if you want to at the BBC or web site of the local paper, the Evening Star.

It's so weird and scary to see my town and the countryside I know so well splashed across every national paper & TV news programme.

What is going on?

I don't know what to say, I've just read on the BBC website that a 3rd woman's body has been found near Ipswich. This comes after two girls (Gemma Adams & Tania Nicol) were found murdered in two separate places (although only 2 miles apart) on the other side of town this week. No further details are available yet and this 3rd awful discovery may not be related to the murders of Gemma & Tania who both worked as prostitutes in the town.

It's scary to see your town and familiar places on the national news every day. I feel so sad for the families of the girls, no matter what they did to earn money they were someone's daughters, granddaughters & friends.

UK Round Robin Journal

Here's the next journal, it has the theme of music/lyrics/poetry so I included lyrics from my favourite song on the ATCs and then some quotes about music...

Next up is Rhi's journal, I'm really excited about this one and the entries so far are completely gorgeous.

So we got the tree...

We decided to get our Christmas tree and we decorated it yesterday- we (well I really, boyfriend didn't really care!) went for a red, white & silver theme. Here it is...

1st December

I feel like I can start getting excited about Christmas now! I may even persuade my other half to buy our tree this weekend although it does feel a little too early still. A lot of my friends are putting their trees up this weekend and in blog land there is lots of Christmas decorating activity.

I so intended to make an advent calendar but I'll have to remember to do one for next year instead.

I have so many project ideas in my head I really need to get a move on- only 24 days to go :) I love this and this and this.

Let me know when you put your decorations up and I'd love to see photos too.
