December already!!!!!

How can it be possible that it's December tomorrow???? The year has come full circle....just wanted to say hi...I haven't been neglecting you all - have been regularly checking in to see what you've all been up to! I'm sitting at the computer and WAY behind on an essay due in at the end of the week so.......as I'm struggling for inspiration thought I would say hello to all you inspirational lovely blogging buddies instead....What a rollercoaster it's been since I saw you all last....the course is 'full on' as they would say in Aus and in addition, we are on placement all the way up to Christmas. The life of this particular student is well and truly full! I truly cannot believe that the end of the year is in sight and once again, the logs are stacked and the woodburner lit...where does the time go???

At this time of year I'm usually in 'Christmas prep' mode but this year, things are a little different! I think I will be lucky to even get a tree organised! The closest I've come to even thinking about the festive season is ticking the turkey or fish box on the office Christmas lunch menu.... My GG will be arriving from Sydney next week and her 'to do' list is filling up fast! First thing on the list is 'assist Mum with essay writing' - never again will I tell her that being a uni student is an easy life!
We did fit in a little frivolity last weekend with a flying visit to London, a macaron-fest at Laduree and a whistle stop tour of all our favourite places. Then, it was back to reality....and to the keyboard...
I can't quite get the taste of those magnificent macarons out of my mind - the rose and ginger or the salted caramel? Mmmmm.....will have to go back just so I can decide for sure..
Now about that essay.....HOW many words??? Oh dear, back to work I go....happy, happy December to you all.........s


  1. Susie...I can't believe I missed this post! I am so excited to hear your news! So glad your GG is coming home too. I remember your post last year with your tree on top of your car and your plans up to Christmas. Has it really been that long?? I am sure you are the perfect student..I can sense your dedication and excitement in your writing. Well done you!!

    Best wishes Susie to you and your family for a beautiful Christmas.

  7. Hi Susie...where are you? I was giving you space...but enough of that - I miss you! Meredy xo

  8. Hello
    Susie I'm a friend of Meredy came across your blog via her recent post. I'm rather intrigued as to where your Mill House is. My Mum grew up in a Mill House thats sounds very similar to what you describe. I apologise now if there are numerous Mill Houses in England. Mum was there over 50 years ago. Does your house have the names Erica, Roger, Cedric or Rosemary written above the door in the entrance?
