Five Good Things… November

I know, I know, I haven’t posted anything on my little space on the web for two weeks now (tut-tut). The main reason being because my eyes have been hurting a fair bit recently (an opticians appointment is already booked for next month), so I’ve been having minimal contact with my laptop screen.

Anyhow I have been met with some mood-lifting things in the past four weeks. So if you have been feeling a bit down lately, I hope that: 1.) The thought of Christmas is bringing out even just the teeniest piece of joyfulness in you, and 2.) My little happenings can add to that in Five Good Things... November. 

Harry Potter Colouring Books:
I cannot hide the fact that I get satisfaction from entering competitions. If you follow me on Twitter I apologise for my retweets that are often daily, however most are too good to miss. Maximum Pop Books are a company that I follow who hold regular giveaways. Going by their name, the majority of the prizes are books and my most current win was four Harry Potter colouring books. Each one features amazing picture outlines to pencil away in to your hearts content.

Dreamgirls - The Musical:
From one film to another - but live on stage. In December my parents and I will be catching the train to London to see this production where I am expecting to hear some incredibly powerful voices. If you haven’t seen the original 2006 release, the stellar cast that consists of chart-topping divas Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson, the songs alone are worth getting a listen of.

Glee’s Amber Riley is starring in the show, however as we are booked in for a matinee performance it is yet unknown whether she will star in our afternoon slot (fingers crossed that she is present).

Yazoo Milkshakes:
These liquid delights must have been on the market now for years, but they still seem to be flying off of retailer’s shelves. I for one love a milkshake, in pretty much any flavour, so when I saw an offer on the Magic Freebies website for a free bottle, I was straight onto it and printing out my coupon.

Let the Festivities Begin:

Right, the Coca Cola ad has officially been aired, which now allows me to merrily declare that Christmas is just around the corner! I will soon be opening the first door to my (Disney Princess *cough*) advent calendar, pressing the record button for Xmas movies that I don’t own on DVD and writing out my seasonal cards. Oh, and I’m looking forward to digging into my Christmas pud with custard closer to the big day.

Greggs App:
I don’t have a lot of apps on my phone, but this is one that I definitely give a thumbs up to.
In just October and November I was sent a number of rewards to get in-store the bakery giant at absolutely no cost! These included a pack of their Hand Cooked Crisps, a Granola Bar and a Balanced Choice where I chose the Strawberry and Granola Yogurt (these really are delicious to eat for breakfast, lunch or dessert).

A Birthday Treat was also ready to redeem due to my change in age a very short time ago, for which I couldn’t not have the amazing Pudsey cupcake that were available especially for Children In Need, plus they came with a free ring too! (At just 85p to buy it’s a superb deal).

What good things have happened to you this November?
