All I want for Christmas...

... is books and dvds apparently :/ (well...maybe a few other things as well)

Here's a little selection of the things I'll be asking Santa for this year:

Brother Innov-is 20 LE Sewing Machine
Well... money towards it at least! I caught the sewing bug whilst taking a textiles class with a few girly friends and would love a nice machine to make lovely things with :). This machine is excellent because it has what I like to call "stupid mode" aka a really adaptable speed changer that doesn't require a peddle!

Miranda Season One
Oh Miranda, how you make me chuckle. I watched all of the episodes of this series twice when they were on iplayer and they really do make me laugh. Very much a guilty pleasure!

One Line a Day - a Five Year Memory Book
Love the idea of this - a simple journal that asks for only one thing - a line from or about your day. All of the posts for a particular date are on the same page - you just add the year at the start of the section. Lovely way of journalling for lazy people like me!

Rose Elliot's New Complete Vegetarian Cookbook
Anyone who really knows me well knows that I have an addiction to cook books... specifically ones written by Nigella Lawson, but also any other interesting looking Vegetarian or Vegan ones. This book is huge and wonderful and has such a wealth of useable sounding recipes. It's also laid out beautifully, which always helps!

Harry Potter Years 1-6 DVD
Yes I know, I should just wait another year and get the entire Year 1-7 box set, but I'm impatient. I'm also extremely excited about the prospect of two Harry Potter films at the cinema in the space of a year. There will be tears when it's all over I'm sure, but for now I want to bask in its glory and force family and friends to endure some Harry Potter action this Christmas.

Gilmore Girls season 5-7
I love love love Gilmore Girls! In my head, they're actual friends of mine. If you don't like it or have never seen it, I assure you your life is in incomplete.

There's a few other bits on there as well - Love in the Time of Science by Emiliana Torrini, some Hope Larson comics, a few more cookbooks and Anne of the Island (it's the 3rd book in the Anne of Green Gables stories). One thing you'll note is a complete lack of makeup/beauty related goodies - I don't know why, but I always find it a bit weird to ask for those sort of things as presents. Never liked doing it, probably never will.... I always end up feeling a little diappointed, no matter how amazing the treat is. I think there's a childlike part of me that is always wanting something to play with or to read or to generally be engrossed in present wise. Funny girl.

What are you asking Santa to bring you ladies?


  1. I'm the same, I always ask for books and films for christmas, although this year I'm asking for leather gloves as the car steering wheel is so cold! I looove the Gilmore Girls as well! x

  2. I love that One Line A Day journal...that's officially been added to my list! :) People always say I'm boring because I ask for books or book vouchers. There's a few Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett books on my list this year as well as the Simon Pegg book! :)

  3. ooh I think even i could manage one line a day
