Hello everyone!  I really hope you’ve all had a nice Christmas, I certainly have – lot of relaxing, eating, church, TV and a little bit of revision (I have January exams).  I haven’t had chance to read that much, but I am slowly plodding my way through Villette.  Don’t get me wrong, I am enjoying it, but maybe not as much as I enjoyed Jane Eyre (I am not even half way though, so it could pick up).  I will do a yearly wrap-up early in January and discuss what my reading plans are over the coming month then.

I was at home for Christmas with my family and my grandparents came too, which was nice.  Singing in the church choir for the carol service on the 23rd and at Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve along with playing the piano for a service on Christmas Eve as well was pretty tiring but worth it.  I got some very nice presents, my main one being my driving lessons still plus a pretty cool accordion!  Book-wise, I received The Hobbit & LOTR box-set which I am very much looking forward to reading for the first time! I hope you have all had as nice a Christmas as I have and let me know what bookish gifts you gave/received!

I really hope 2013 will be a good year for us all, full of happiness and reading, although it will have a lot to live up to for me: 2012 saw the amazing Olympics, lovely holidays to Vienna and Majorca plus my exam results which were pretty good haha!  I am going to Uganda in February (scary!) with my Dad and my sister, so that will definitely be a massive experience. Anyway, let me know your plans for 2013 – I would love to know what you’re planning to get up to and all of you enjoy New Year’s Eve!!
