I've said it far too often but I can't believe we're already in December. We put the Christmas tree up this week - our plan was temporarily thwarted by an electricity cut which meant we ate our dinner by candlelight #soromantic Once we were back up and running however, we blasted the Christmas songs on Spotify and decorated the tree. I really annoyed JB by singing along to every song, whether the lyrics were correct or not. Just call me Nat King Lou from now on. There's always a mad scramble to see everyone before they go away for the holidays: I'm hanging around until the 24th. The only travel I have is a 2 hour train ride to Lyon which I'm happy about because it's nice and simple.
This post is just to check in with you all, as I haven't been able to finalise any "serious" posts that I hope to publish over the next few weeks. Here is a little round up of what I have been doing/eating/listening to recently:
The Hunger Games - Mockingjay
I've already read the book, so am therefore fully prepared for what happens which meant I could just enjoy giving my full attention to Katniss, who I love (mostly because she is played by Jennifer Lawrence). The soundtrack is also not bad, I've been listening to these two songs pretty much on repeat.
'Tis the season to drink lots of hot chocolate tra la la la la, la la la la! As you can see from the photo above, I have been indulging in hot chocolate and sweet treats recently whilst simultaneously catching up with friends.
Apples under my bed
I've been following Heidi on Instagram for a while now and am a big fan of her photos. If you like good writing, lovely food photography and recipes then I highly recommend you visit her blog. I'm really excited as she will be part of the LouLou meets series in 2015.
The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation, Veep
Whenever I have a bit of down time alone (pretty rare at the moment) I love to catch up with one of these shows. They have me laughing from the pit of my stomach and I obviously love supporting females who are writing/producing/starring in a show.
We're off to the countryside with French friends this weekend - I hope you are all looking forward to the break from the office.
