It's nearly Christmas! I'm very excited this year and I hope that the new year will bring much happier memories than 2012 has. I think the job searching needs to commence to be honest as well, I'm just not getting the overtime that I need - Hugo needs petrol after all. This month hasn't been very interesting to be honest. I decided to take part in NaNoWriMo this year however I didn't start writing until the second week and now I've reached about 29,000 words and I've hit a wall... there is no way in hell that I can reach 50,000 by the 30th. But nevermind! To be honest I'm impressed I've made it this far - after all it's my longest piece of writing yet and I haven't even edited it yet and well it's not finished to be honest. Let's face it, Cynical Relations I have been writing for a very long time and personally I don't find the quality of writing or the content to as appealing as my NaNoWriMo piece. As I've had a lack of overtime it has meant that I was able to knuckle down with writing but I just can't find inspiration right now. I know what I want to write but I just can't get it down... I just sit here staring blankly at my computer screen or a piece of paper until I find something to procrastinate with (though my room is incredibly tidy now!).
What I'm listening to: I do love Skyfall by Adele. It's been motivating to write to.
Latest obsession: Crafty Creatives. I love it. I haven't been very artsy or creative since I finished college for lack of inspiration and materials however Crafty Creatives sends you a little box of creative goodies each month for all your crafting needs. Each both is themed, October was Halloween themed and November was nostalgic Christmas. Each box features a kit (Octobers was to make a masquerade mask which is pictured on my pin board above) though I doubt I'm going to get the hang of crocheting with this month's kit - it doesn't look easy! I made the bracelet pictured above with the skull beads that were included in October's box and I haven't had it off of my wrist since. I can't wait to have a play next week with November's box.
What I've Watched: What haven't I watched? Well Supernatural actually but if we look past that I've watched Firefly - which was bloody brilliant and I would highly recommend to everyone and anyone. Seriously this television series is fantastic in my eyes. I love all of the characters and it's just an interesting story line, it's just a shame there isn't a series two. There was a film made however, Serenity, to round it all up - I wasn't a massive fan of the film but it was still good.
I've also started to re-watch Life On Mars because well it's Gene Genie baby. I love this show and it has been far too long since I first watched it, I'll be re-watching Ashes To Ashes next I think!

Two months, two months! Oh I'm terrible. I'm rubbish at keeping on top of things, we all know that. I haven't even updated you on Center Parcs and that seems like ages ago now.
Halloween came next! That was a good night out - though I think it was my second this year to be honest. I dressed up as a pirate and Yas did some special effects makeup on Beki and I that looked incredibly - Beki's torn out throat can be seen in one of the first pictures. I'm impressed, she's damn good at what she does.
