Christmas Outfits and Vampires?

This is what I wore for to a Christmas meal with my old work. It was so nice being invited even though I haven’t worked there for a while now, my old manager has become almost like an Aunt which is so nice. I knew it wasn’t going to be a dressy affair so carrying on from the last post, I decided to wear a bit of black but this time letting my skirt do all the talking. We went for tapas at La Tasca and it was so yummy and I will definitely be making a visit back there again with friends.

Last week I went to see Twilight with a friend. She’s a huge fan of the books but I am quite aware of the mixed reviews and the huge hype thats surrounded it. I read the first book for curiosities sake but found the many grammatical errors in the book frustrating, I really hate having to read sentences twice to understand what the writer meant to say. So in my opinion, it is not a well written book and really lacks any real substance. I felt it skimmed the surface of the story and a little lacklustre. Some of my friends pointed out that it is a teen book but I don’t think it excuses the shoddy writing. I can see why they’re so popular because the idea is interesting although nothing new. It just did not fulfill my expecations!

The movie itself was cheesey, overly dramatic and mostly funny…even though it wasn’t really meant to be. It made me laugh, so in a strange twist…I did enjoy the film afer all, perhaps for the wrong reasons.

On vampire themed books, I read a series when I was 14 called Night World by LJ Smith (whose final installment has been 10 years in the making!) or better still, Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire.
Moving on from fanged beings…

The following photo of my youngest sister was taken at the yearly German Market in Birmingham. The biggest outside Germany apparently and the crowds were bustling around little cabins selling mulled wine, garlic bread, hand crafted goods and german treats. She’s wearing a knitted Christmas pudding woolly hat…I just realised I am strangely attracted by knitted goods in the shape of food! Haha. I have some knitted party ring brooches somewhere in my room which awaits going to a suitable recipitent! I will have to take a photo of them before I give them away!

This will be my last post before Christmas, so I hope everyone has a Fab Christmas and a very happy New Year! xxxx
