Celebrate The Small Things: 18 December
I’m having one those weeks. Started off with great intentions, and then things went wrong very quickly. I was fine one moment and then the next I was on the floor in agony, unable to move. I’d been feeling dizzy prior and think It might have been a case of Sciatica. It’s ok though because the worst part cleared up after the first day and now I just have a bit of stiffness. Unfortunately, sitting at my computer for too long seems to aggravate the problem, but I’ve been using this as an excuse to lay down with a few Christmas films. I know of a few people that have to deal with problems like Sciatica on a regular basis and my heart goes out to them because it was incredibly unpleasant.
It was my sisters Birthday this week and it meant a lot to me to ensure she had a great day. I decided to make her a cake. A cranberry and chocolate Battenberg. It turned out ok, and I’m really good at assembling these cakes now. She loved the drawing I put on her card too (the above image.) Before I injured my back I also had a fun time putting up the Christmas decorations while my parents kept my Sherry glass full – come to think of it maybe this is how I injured my back in the first place. The house looks nice and festive at least. Also went to see a mystery film at the cinema that turned out to be In The Heart Of The Sea. They were giving out free sweets too.
Star Wars is out, but it happens to clash with other plans so haven’t been able to see it right away. We got it booked for next Monday though. Before that I’m also going to a concert. Lots of things to look forward to.
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.
