Hooray, it's November!

I just love November! It's my favourite month of the year - even more favourite than December, which I also adore (I'm a big fan of Christmas and my birthday is in December as well).


I was supposed to have been born in November, so maybe that is why?

Reasons why I love November this year?

Well, hopefully; fingers and toes crossed - and anything else that can be crossed as well - this November I'll find out that I was accepted into the Doctorate I applied for in August.


If I'm very lucky, I might also get a stipend for the next three years (that would be very exciting, but please don't hold your breath, I don't want to be responsible for people passing out or away!).


NaNoWriMo starts today and continues for the rest of November! I have a fairly good plan for a story this year, so am hopeful I will actually win! I may be writing late at night, but write I will!


Our school fair is in November, in 9 days to be exact. We love attending the school fair and look forward to it each year. This year with Erik receiving an art award and exhibiting in the art show, it will be all the more special!


The Grumpy Old Man and I have our wedding anniversary on the 14th of the month. Fourteen years of marriage and 16 year of being together (and 15 year of living together) all on the same day! Maybe, if we're in our own house next November, I might actually get around to organising those vow renewals I was going to do four years ago. It would be love to invite family and friends - seeing as they weren't able to be in attendance the first time around.

Fourteenth wedding anniversary theme is apparently gold - must tell the GOM!

Oh, and I'm going to a concert at the end of the month as well, to see - wait for it - Rick Astley!!! I know, I know, what a dag - but you know, I did quite like his music in the 80s and the best bit is going with a friend who shares next to no similar musical taste with me!

This is what Rick looks like these days - like the love-child of Ray Martin and Kevin Rudd...

So, bring on November and warm weather and lots of good stuff!

I love November too Sif, I think it's so under-appreciated! I'm also attempting Nano this year, although now that it's actually Nov 1, I'm spending my first free writing moments planning my story instead of actually writing it!

yay for November! I am a bit of a fan of it as well. Good luck with NaNo. I am pretty pumped about it too mind you the first word is still waiting patiently to be written. I remember the first year I did it I stayed up till midnight to see the first tick over and jumped straight into it. Oh how times change :)

Just so you both feel better, I haven't written my first word yet either. i spent tonight with some lovely school mums (jeez this year they've just been top notch!) preparing for the school fair - so the writiing will probaby happen while also watching Love Boat and Charmed in the wee hours, ha!

Good Job!
