Tis the season to at least start thinking about the season  
~ I spent Saturday at Leeds Castle's festive fair, trying mulled wine, buying little craft things and bizarrely watching a bird show with parrots, a hornbill and stork. I also wanted to dive into the giant stand of Charlie Bears they had there and go 'OMG WILL YOU ALL COME AND LIVE WITH ME? I LOVE YOU!'. I didn't tell the stall owner that I had that particular bear but he was called Oh Noes Bear. He looked like the type who simply wouldn't understand internet lingo.

~ Then we went to the local garden centre on the way home, cooed over the Christmas decorations and bounced along to the live choir (as opposed to zombie choir?) they had there.

~ I've managed to be reasonably organised. Or at least as much as I want to be with five weeks before Christmas. Brought some stuff for mum and dad, got ideas for Heidi. Not really thought about Chris yet but he's generally quite easy. I keep getting hassled about doing my own Christmas list. Which is nice but I really haven't had much time. I've nearly finished the cross stitch I've been doing for my mum and there's a wreath I'm crafting for her too.

~ On the bright side at work, pupil who was excluded for brandishing a chair over his head and threatening to break the backs of the AEN staff will be out until at least term 4 (Feb half term). Thank goodness for that. He has hardcore psychological issues and they've at least found somewhere else for him temporarily.

~ I realised how much I'm enjoying this season of Supernatural. So much more coherent and tied together than last series. It feels more like season 3 or 4 again.

The Leed's Castle fair sounds like a lot of fun. I recently went to a county fair at Glamis Castle in Scotland and really loved it.

I also agree with you about Supernatural. I'm a couple of episodes behind, but I love what I've seen so far.

I've seen a lot of bird shows in my time. But never one starring a stork!

They were very cool. And graceful. And they really hated seagulls. My brother wanted to be one.
