Well, hello there! Long time no see.
The last few weeks disappeared into a black hole for me, and I just realized Yule
is only 2 weeks away! Yesterday I handed in the first draft of my degree paper.
I have not done as much as I should have, and I feel a bit stressed out
about the final thing being due already in the beginning of January.
Not to mention all the presents to buy and chores to be done before Yule...
I bought a couple of new black dresses for the upcoming parties and for
The Curious Professor Z's Gothimas I thought I'd share them with you.
You can't really tell in the pictures but the first dress is all black lace,
and the last dress sparkles and the tights are crushed velvet.
(And yes, that is wrapping paper in the background. Festive, n'est-ce pas?)
On Saturday my parents have invited us to a Yule concert and a proper Julbord
(Yule smorgasbord centered around pork and herring). Corporate/office working
Sweden is totally bananas about Julbord, and my man has two more
to go to in the coming week. Myself, I will be making the candy
for Yule Eve, as usual. It is something I really enjoy, even when I'm busy.
I will leave you for now with a hilarious Downton Abbey Christmas spoof.
I can't wait for the real Christmas special this weekend, it's always great fun.
(Be sure to check out nr 2 as well!)
Thank you, Franny, for giving me a reason to get off my ass and post something :)
I will be posting again for Gothimas this weekend, hope to see you then.
Now I'm off to visit the other participants!
