This week has been wet and wild here on the South Coast, but it has obviously been nothing in comparison to what has hit the Eastern seaboard of America. Hurricane Sandy left a wake of destruction and there is a lot of work that needs to be done to get everyone back on their feet. These awful situations really do bring the best out of kind hearted people and it has really warmed my heart to see the generosity of those helping in this time of need.
These are my favourite things which have made me happy this week…
We really enjoyed dressing our bay window in the lounge for Halloween (please excuse the television!). We had the most trick-or-treaters ever and everyone seemed to be having a fun and a spooktacular Halloween!
Last week Nathan turned 30 on the day that the new James Bond film Skyfall was released so we went to dinner and to see the movie to celebrate. It was absolutely fantastic and in my opinion the best Bond movie ever. Daniel Craig was obviously sublime, but so were the storyline, Javier Bardem as the baddie, Dame Judi Dench as M and Adele’s epic song
From the glamour of James Bond to the reality of housekeeping! Our old vacuum was beyond help and driving me crazy, so we finally jumped on the Dyson bandwagon and I am thrilled! As mundane as it seems, I really am happy about our new addition. I am now able to zip around the house in no time at all which leaves me more time to do the things I love
The last of the hydrangeas
It is the season finale of the glorious Downton Abbey. It has been a fantastic third series with many highs and lows and I cannot wait to see what is in store for us tonight.
