“It’s The Little Things In Life” – 33 – November || Life Lately

“It’s no big thing, but you make big things out of little things sometimes.” – Robert Duvall

Last time I posted an It’s The Little Things post, I said that I should just change this to “an ode to Fran’s completionist attitude”. And well, it’s true, and I at least want to finish off all of these for 2019. Because in 2019 I actually got to do things and leave the house. (2020, not so much… I’m not sure how many times you can mention a Zoom call as a highlight of your month to be completely honest with you!) So, while I’m not sure anyone else enjoys reading these as much as I enjoy writing them. Let’s hop on into my camera roll and “one second a day” app and talk about twenty-five or so little (and not so little!) things that made my November great last year!

“It’s The Little Things In Life”

  • Let’s start with possibly the biggest one, after getting the date in October, I got the metal plate removed from wrist after breaking it five or so years ago.
  • & Talking of little things, it really made me appreciate them more. Things like washing my own hair and putting my makeup on…
  • & having a lovely avocado on toast for breakfast.
  • The night of my operation was also the night of the final episode of Drag Race UK. Which had quickly become a highlight for me each week. I mean, it was just so iconic!
  • Talking of TV, November also marked the start of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
  • Making a lovely banoffee pie for the office, if I do say so myself!
  • I went on a trip to the gorgeous Porchester Spa run by Everyone Active (& if you click the name, there’s my full post on it!)
  • I played a lot of Pokemon Sword, because, well I still have a place in my heart for Pokemon.
  • Christmas lights starting to get put up and feeling festive.
  • Nando’s take out. Enough said!
  • I also got a kit and made my own soy wax candle (here’s similar on Amazon as mine was a gift)
  • Talking of DIY I tried a recipe for hummus pasta and it was a total success.
  • Watching the gorgeous “Trixie Mattel: Moving Parts” at the cinema with Cat & Hannah. I may have cried…
  • Tea break chats at work, which, I miss even more now!
  • Getting my Christmas shopping finished and wrapped by midmonth – kind of a necessary but was a real weight off my shoulders.
  • Checking out the artwork at Elephant West.
  • Costa Festive Hot Chocolates.
  • An evening of pizza and playing Mario Kart and Cards Against Humanity with Stu, George & Jon.
  • & then proceeding to be up until stupid o’clock with Stuart watching Vine compilations.
  • I went Christmas crafting with Viking and made my own bauble. (& I’ve posted a tutorial if you fancy trying to yourself!)
  • Long soaks in the bath, a glass of wine optional…
  • Discord voice chats with some of my favourites.
  • My colleague Diana’s baby shower where we went out for a lovely meal.
  • & got to see my colleagues again for what would be one of the last times we were all together in that group.
  • And finally, last but not least, the feeling that it was the start of something new!
