Sunday Spotlight - 14th December 2014

In my life this week…

Posting cards

Christmas is fast approaching and this week I have been getting all my cards written and posted. Somehow I’ve actually managed to get them all written pretty quickly and am actually starting to feel a little more organised. I spent a good deal of my Tuesday down at the Post Office in the longest of queues. It does get a bit crazy there over Christmas and people were showing up piled high with cards and presents. I’m not sure the lady behind the counter put the right stamps on my overseas letters, so I’m a bit worried none of them will get there, which is a bit annoying, but she was very hassled and didn’t seem too receptive when I questioned what she was doing!

Christmas jumpers

One of my favourite things about this time of year is being able to wear my rather vast collection of Christmas jumpers! Last year I bought myself one jumper – a little black number with a gingerbread man on the front, and was quite content with that. But this year I have seen so many amazing jumpers in the shops that I just couldn’t help myself buying a few more. Primark has been a particular favourite shop to go to, but I also made a rather large order from ASOS, who have some amazing jumpers available this year. I’m also very jealous of the bloggers who have been sent personalised Christmas jumpers this year – I wish I could get one but the minimum order for personalised jumpers is 18, and I think that might be a little excessive!

Christingle Service

I’ve been really struggling with my faith recently and have consequently been struggling to get to Church. That, plus the fact that I’m so exhausted all the time and want to get as much sleep as possible on a Sunday morning, has meant I haven’t been to Church in quite a while. So I thought with the Christmas services coming up, I would make an effort to get back into going to Church again. Today we had our annual Christingle service, which I took my Mum along to, and I actually really enjoyed it. To me, the Christingle service signifies the start of Christmas, so I’m really glad I managed to make it there and I’m hoping to get to some more of the Christmas celebrations at my Church.

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!

  1. I remember Christingle used to be my favourite part about Christmas as a child, simply because we had a whole class dedicated to making the oranges and eating sweets! xx
