In addition to that calendar, my friend has sent me another lovely advent calendar card again this year, which I will enjoy opening every day.

The boxes of Christmas ‘stuff’ have been retrieved from storage and today I will be getting out the festive tea towels, mugs, cushions, aprons, throws, candles and CDs.  Now that December is here I have no problem with embracing the festive spirit (although I won’t be putting up the tree for a while) so here we go …
