It’s coming to that time of year.

“What do you want for Christmas?”
“Er dunno. What about you?”
“I’m not sure…”

Choosing what you want for Christmas used to be so much easier as a child. I used to love flipping through the Argos catalogue with my sister; drawing big circles around the toys we wanted. But now, as an adult, there’s not too much I’m in need of. Money is great, of course, but I always find I very rarely actually spend it on anything decent. Instead, it ends up being spent on stuff like petrol or coffee.

Ashamedly, I started ‘the low down’ (essentially a mash-up of favourites and a monthly diary) back in April with good intentions of making it a fairly regular part of Musings & More. Which considering it’s now six months later and this is only my second ‘entry’, I’m sure you can tell that has gone so well. Either way, here’s some of my favourites of October!

I was recently having a conversation with a friend about holidays and the countries we wanted to visit in our lifetimes. The list was pretty endless but still potentially realistic. ‘But I also want a bigger house,’ I interjected. And with that, I began to think of everything else I also wanted. The high-flying career. The nice house. Marriage and children. A social life. As society would deem it, I want to have it all.

For readers who don’t know, I’m part of a lovely group of bloggers (dubbed QBloggers) for my local shopping centre, Queensgate. A few times a year, we get together at fun events to spread the word about exciting things happening at Queensgate. We also get some fantastic challenges to complete around the centre, previous ones of which you can read here and here. So I was very intrigued to receive an email with very vague details about our next challenge, especially because they can be so varied!
