Granny Squares on the bus

You know you've hit the ultimate level of cool when you are crocheting Granny Squares on the bus listening to Harry Potter podcasts.

Especially when the podcasts are over a month old, all about the launch of Pottermore. X

Holidays are coming, holidays are coming...

Everybody has their own triggers for the beginning of the festive season. The Boy's is the infamous Coca Cola advert. The one with the massive trailer and little boy running through snow covered pine forests.

Mine is the Starbucks red cups which signify the return of their Gingerbread Latte. Saying that this year's first one was disappointing. No as creamy and delicious as I remember. But just seeing people wandering around with the red cups makes me feel all Christmassy.

The Christmas markets in Manchester will be up and running from next week. The cottages are up but no people selling their wares. There is a winter themed pop up bar right next to my work so might have to have a little sample of their Manchester Mulled Wine (spiked with Vimto).
