Is it really that time of the month already? (no, I'm not talking periods). It's time to see my social media stats and just give a general round-up of November.

It's been a good month for me, I got a new car near the beginning of the month! It's taken me a little while to get used to it as it s a slightly bigger car and it's weird having a reverse camera, but I love it! Hopefully it'll make me a better parker! I also went to a lovely christening, it was my best friend's little boy and I left there feeling slightly worse for wear after downing a few double vodkas!

How could I forget the wonderful reaction and comments people gave me about my BBC Sesh video that got published at the beginning of the month?! I'd like to say thank you again for all the lovely comments and compliments you guys gave me, it really touched me and I'm glad I reached across to so many people!

I have celebrated my two year blogger-versary this month too! I can't believe it's been two years since I started blogging, how time flies!

Right social media-wise, it's been a good month, I still love Twitter and Instagram has been a bit a pain in the backside! I think we're all really struggling with the algorithm, especially as I found out the other day that you're photo, when posted, gets shown to only 10% of your followers. Shame on you Instagram.

Anyway, let's see what were my best social media analytics from the last month:


TWITTER 
Top Tweet:
This really did my swede in. How dare people ask for team news during a two minute silence which is to remember our fallen soldiers?! Completely disrespectful! Right, rant over, let's move on to the next tweet -

Top Media Tweet:
This watch, I just love. It's so classy and I feel quite elegant when wearing it! Thank you to Adexe again for sending it to me!


INSTAGRAM
Most Liked:

I do love a baggy jumper. This one especially. This picture was aimed at a post I wrote back at the start of November about a collaboration with NA-KD fashion. Seriously, check them out, it's a new brand I've fallen in love with!


Personal Favourite:

There were a couple of photo's which were my favourites, but this one just edged it for me. I went for a walk with one of my friends and her lovely dog in Tredegar Park. I took this one from across the lake and I had to post it. It's nice to see that my home town does have some beauty in it somewhere!


November, it's been a pleasure, but now it's time to get festive - December is almost here. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get my tree down from the box room and hang the tinsel up.

It sounds like a herd of elephants are trampling all over my roof this morning. My neighbour is having his roof done and you can imagine how noisy it is in my house this morning. Still, things to do, people to see! Well, I got things to do anyway.

You will soon see what I mean in an upcoming post. But it got very messy very quickly!
Right, now that I've cleaned up, I need to get changed and put some odd socks on, as you do -
Anti Bullying Week means quite a lot to me, as you'll find out on Wednesday...ooh, I'm being very mysterious aren't I?!
Aww bless! It really made me smile! I'm so glad they seen it because I wouldn't be where I am today without their help and care.
Ok, I have just seen something that has made me too excited for next Summer -
You got to love those toys!

I know we should spread kindness every day, but I kind of think this day is a day to remember that we should be doing that!
I've been to the gym and now I'm sat on the settee, puffing my Colomycin and watching Lorraine on ITV. I can already foresee this being quite a lazy Tuesday. Ah well, I'm due a lazy day!

Here's a little bit of Wednesday wisdom to start your day off! A little motivational quote is good to get your day off to a good start. Right, let's get motivated to get to work. I really could do with staying at home today.
After 45 minutes in the chemist waiting for my prescription, I'm home and am now on the treadmill at 6pm. Why do I do this to myself?
It's 6pm and I feel exhausted. I think my bed may be calling me about 10pm.

It's on the news this morning that the John Lewis advert has been released for us all to see -

I've seen 1 out of 2 of these adverts, now, when will the Coca Cola truck drive on my TV?
It's been an incredibly long day in work, I need some tea, or better still, vodka. I definitely need vodka after what I've just spotted in my bedroom -
I know I can't and I'll refuse to sleep in my bedroom tonight unless I see this spider disappear out of my bedroom with my own eyes.
*Update - he's gone, I got my Mam to get rid of him out of the window when she came home from work!
Now that's settled, let's cwtch down for the evening.

It's Children in Need day and I'm kind of looking forward to a completely bonkers day in school with the kids doing crazy activities. I may not sound so happy at 3:00pm today mind.
After a mad day in work and being stuck in traffic for 45 minutes, seeing three cute dogs walk on the path passing my car melted my heart. Dogs really do cheer you up.
This is what happens when your class has a free day and does a lot of Pudsey drawings and colourings.

It's 9:30am, I'm just getting up and I literally haven't comprehended of how much I have to do before I go out about lunch time. Oh dear. So, where am I going I hear you ask?

It needs sorting out. I'm spotting quite a few split ends and it just needs a trim, plus a colour.
I'm stuck in traffic on the bridge right now. Then my Mam informs me that Ryan Giggs is turning on the Christmas lights in town. Nah, I'm not staying for that, I'll be hungry after getting my hair done. Food is more important. Food always comes first.
Yes, I've had food but more importantly my hair has been cut, coloured and styled to within a inch of it's life - and I'm too happy with the results!
Yes, I'm happy. Now it's time to settle for Saturday evening. But before I go, it's a special day for one of my besties -
I hope she has a fabulous day!

I got a busy Sunday planned. But here I am, lying in bed, debating what to wear for later on. Yes, I'm off to a christening! It's my best friend Carla's little boy Theo. A nice service and food and drink afterwards, I honestly can't fault it.
A lovely service (yes, I eventually decided what to wear!) now it's time to eat this bad boy -

It was lush. An extra large dinner too. I ate it all apart from one Yorkshire pudding. In my defence, the Yorkshire's were big. The photo doesn't do them justice.
I'm feeling very content on this Sunday evening. I am now preparing myself for this TV show to make it's comeback -
I've been waiting for this for so long!
