Happy Saturday all!
I finished the bulk of my Christmas shopping today. Chadstone was busy but I know it will get even busier over the next two weeks so I seemed to have escaped the madness. It’s such a relief to have the majority of the gifts out of the way. I only have a couple more to go, but I can pick them up after work next week. So all in all, a very productive Saturday.
Tonight I attended the ballet with my mum to watch ‘The Nutcracker’. I’ve always loved to watch it on television at Christmas time and when I found out it was playing at the Arts Centre, I had to get tickets. It was such a beautiful production to watch, and the dancing was incredible. I loved the costumes, the music; everything was perfect. It truly was a feast for the eyes. Dance and music have always moved me and I love how so much can be conveyed through movement and expression.

I’ve heard that the Russian Ballet may be bringing Swan Lake to Melbourne soon; that would be incredible to watch.
I’m really tired now but don’t feel ready to go to bed; I feel like I am ‘wasting’ the weekend if I sleep. Does anyone else get like this? I’m just relaxing with a cup of tea and my tablet, so I can unwind a little.
I picked up season 3 of the show ‘Girls’ today and I can’t wait to watch it tomorrow (after I return from Costco). It feels like forever since the last season came out.
