πŸ™ Sunday Reflection | My December 2021 Wrap-Up β„

Hello everyone, a blessed Sunday and a happy new year to you all. πŸŽ† I hope this post finds you all well. A wonderfully busy month has passed here in the UK for me and now it is time to reflect on what we’ve been doing, reading and watching over that time.

Wow December really has flown by for me! What with finally getting over my Chronic Sinusitis, returning to work, Christmas shopping, the run down to the end of the school term, decorating, wrapping presents and all the special church services and events! Plus with restrictions being freer this year, I was able to visit family and stay in a lovely hotel on the south coast just before the big day itself. 😊

Then I slowed things down with a nice, quiet Christmas day with just my dad and grandad, and this last week of the month, I have focused on relaxing, resting and some light chores and organising around the house. Now I am feeling rested and ready for a new year, new month, and new school term. Hopefully! 🀞

No surprise that with all that going on my reading has dropped, however I have still been able to finish these 3 books, which is a pretty average amount for me in the last year:

That is two interesting non-fictions about completely polar people: one about the glamorous and scandalous actress, Lillie Langtry, and the other about the disciples and early followers of Jesus. Then I followed up with another of King’s comforting and nostalgic Mary Russell & Sherlock Holmes Mysteries: The Game, which is also my favourite of the month. πŸ†

I have also recently started reading The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank (2013), on my Kindle, and I am primed to start working my way through my beautiful new copy of Celtic Daily Prayer: Book One by the Northumbria Community (2015).

The busyness and holidays didn’t slow my viewing down though. In fact I watched even more than in November, when I was trapped in bed ill! First here are the films I watched, many of which were joint watches with friends and family over our two week holiday:

While here are the TV series I worked my way through:

That is a whopping 13 new views for me! But of course Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the comforting re-watches of Harry Potter 1-5,Β Elf (2003),Β The Grinch (2000), The Holiday (2006), and Love Actually (2003) as well!

Overall a great month of viewing, but being difficult to pick between many of them, my favourite watch of the month has to jointly go to Last Christmas (2019) and Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021), as they both made me smile, laugh and cry in equal measure. πŸ†

Finally, in case you missed anything… well being honest there wasn’t much to miss, due to the combination of busyness, tiredness and my laptop dying! 😡 However here is the one review and a couple of end-of-year posts I have shared over the month:

  1. It sounds as if you had a busy and satisfying end of the year. I hope the new year is getting off to a great start for you! Thanks to Omicron, we’re experiencing a few more restrictions again, but I have faith it’s all going to improve soon.

    1. My new year has got off to a good start, thank you Kelly 😊 I hope Omicron will run itself out soon and restrictions will be able to ease for you. πŸ™

  2. Hi there Jessica! Happy New Year! Glad to hear you had some time to relax and took it easy. Also glad to hear you are finally feeling a bit better. Sinus can be a real party pooper.

    We’ve watched Don’t Look Up last weekend and although it’s a bit strange, I quite enjoyed it. Last Christmas is a lovely movie!

    I hope 2022 will be a good year for you. Take care of yourself!
