Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week.


This week I'm celebrating:

- Breaking Bad - My mum, sister and I started watching it last week (I know, a little behind the times) and we love it! We're midway through season two already - it shouldn't be too long before we finish it. The only bad thing is it's cutting into my NaNo prep! 

- My contract at work has gone from 20 hours to 34, yay! I've been working 34 hours a week for the last few months, but the extra was as overtime. This meant that whenever I took a holiday, I would only get paid the 20 hours, which was a little inconvenient. Now I don't have to worry when I want a week off from work. It also means I can have bank holidays off like everyone else, since I'll still get paid them now I'm contracted for a Monday. 

- The weather has been much cooler this week, and I'm loving it - I much prefer the cold.

  1. Glad you're getting paid for more hours.
    Breaking Bad is just fascinating to watch, isn't it?

  6. Congrats on getting more hours at work. I'm finding the weather a little to cool for my taste, but I did treat myself to some nice new gloves today to help keep my fingers nice and warm. :)

  8. I can't wait to hear what you think of Breaking Bad as you get further in Laura. I joined the party very late myself last month but now I'm closing in on finishing it with just the fifth series to watch, it gets better and better!

  12. I stopped watching BB after the Pollo guy came on board. He gave me too many sleepless nights.

  14. Mo' money, mo' money, mo' money! That's a good thing indeed!

    I'd forgotten to mention in my list my addiction to Survivors BBC. I watched the whole two seasons in less than a week... then to find out there'll be no third season! :) May you take the time you need to prep for NaNo. Writer’s Mark

  15. Glad to hear about the hours being contracted now. that is good for loads of reasons and shows they appreciate what you are doing.

    I know nothing of this show but folk seemto like it....... I have watched Black Books a few times now and still love it, but just don't get to see much on TV these days.
