The Desolation of Smaug was AMAZING last night, I can definitely see going to the cinema on New Year's Eve becoming a tradition in my house, there were only 9 of us in the entire theater! The film ended at exactly Midnight so we drove home watching the fireworks going off around us ringing in the New Year.
Today was spent at my Grandparents house with my Uncle and his family joining us there. We left my Grandparents at 7:30 this evening and made it home by 9:15, pretty good time actually as the journey usually takes 2 hours, guessing not many people were travelling today due to hangovers etc.
This evening was spent watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow (pt 2) while we waited rather impatiently for Sherlock to finish recording so we could watch it through properly. Yes I have to say I am a massive Sherlock fan and I am so glad that it's finally back on the TV. I am not happy that in less than a month's time it will all be over again for lord knows how long this time but that's not for a while yet! For the sake of those that haven't seen it yet I won't reveal anything here about tonight's episode but I will simply say how much I enjoyed it :)
This does however it does mean that as today was spend catching up with family & Sherlock, I haven't actually done any stitching this side of the New Year so after emptying out last year's ORTS into the bin (remembering shortly afterwards that I hadn't taken a final photo....DOH) I have nothing in my jar to show for this first TUSAL post of the year! I am using the same jar I have used every year since I started TUSALing (is that a word?) as it's rather a nice size and doesn't take up to much room on my sewing table, although it does get some odd looks from friends when they come to visit :)
Let's hope that the 30th shows considerably more progress!!
