Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I was a bit worried I wouldn’t get today off from the new job since I have no vacation time as a newb. But on Friday my boss told me not to bother coming in until Wednesday which made me a very happy accountant. I hope everyone else is able to take a few days off as well!

Just going to ramble on a bit. Went to see Jack Reacher on Friday despite never having read the books. Not a perfect film and I’m sure the novels are much better, but an enjoyable action flick nonetheless. Had some laugh out loud moments which were pleasant surprises. I did think Tom Cruise was playing his role a bit too earnestly to be believable.

Tonight is Christmas Eve! We’re having a quiet little holiday – just the two of us and our dogs. Our very first Christmas not spent down south with my family and I’m quite looking forward to it! We’ve booked a dinner for this evening at a steakhouse and plan to see Les Mis tomorrow. My husband is obsessed and can barely keep still knowing how close he is to seeing Hugh Jackman as Jean.

Not really doing presents this year. I bought a few books for myself and the first season of Homeland. Jimmy says he’s more than happy with my employment status as a gift…haha.

Been reading some great books recently which will be reviewed on the blog before year end. Currently devouring the second Flavia de Luce novel by Alan Bradley. I just love little Flavia and all her eccentricities. Mystery stories have really been my go to choices this Christmas. I might make that an annual theme – just seems sort of appropriate!

Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours! Looking forward to a New Year!

  1. I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you got a little bonus holiday day. And there is a Christmas-themed Flavia book (the third one ??? Fourth?). that would be perfect for next year!

    • Christmas was wonderful – as I hope yours was as well! And I think I will most definitely time my reading of the 4th Flavia in time for the holidays next year!
