  • Handcraft Christmas Cards for at least family and immediate friends, to then be posted on Card Day in December (9th of December)

I have got all the materials all together and I am currently in the process of making them. I will take some photos of them to share with you all!

  • By mid-November I will have determined who I have presents for and what I have left to get.

Yes! I went through my box of Christmas presents and determined how many presents I have for who and how many. From there I know who I’ve got left and luckily with the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, I was able to get a couple more. I’m at least 3/4 quarters done, which is good!

  • I am currently reading Cassandra Clare’s “Lady Midnight” The Dark Artifices, Book one and then write a review about it…Good or Bad…I’ve been wanting to start reading this series for a long time and I finally got my hands on the first book.

This has been done! You can view my review for it here


I’m going to be that person today =D

Oh yes I am going to be that person today, that person that you just hate, that person you’ll want ‘unfriend”, that person that makes you want to scream “Shuddup! I don’t wanna know!” … Oh yes today I am going to be that person!


I’m only posting this because I had a conversation with my partner and I started to realise how some people don’t even panic. I guess because I’m a natural worrier I plan for Christmas months ahead. When I wasn’t working at the beginning of June I would put something away each fortnight, saving a bit each month. Then at the end of the August I’d start buying presents.

You might be able to guess that I’m a big Christmas person =D

The month before the storm

So it’s one month until December…It may not exactly be a “storm” but December, Christmas month and last month of the year can get a little crazy!


So for the next month at least, I will be posting links to literary type pages that I think have good gifts for people that you might want to consider getting for your literary friends. – Literary Apparel for your Bookish life!

Remembrance Day

Today on the 11th of November Australians everywhere will be taking a minutes silence at 11am. As on the  11th of November 1918 the guns fell silent on the Western front fell quiet after fours years of warfare.

The 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.
