Just one photo tonight because of a little disaster in the photography/internet department this weekend. My original post was thwarted by leaving the memory card in the computer on Saturday, swiftly followed by the trial of getting the internet back on track; if it wasn't Sunday a stiff drink would have been called for. However, I have been able to admire the super advent calendars some of you have made. Whilst I may not have crafted my contribution to advent, a chocolate filled advent calendar for each member of this household has become a tradition over many years, with newcomers added to the list on reaching an appropriate age and suffice to say this little reindeer wasn't long for the world on the first day of advent.
My pre-Christmas excitement has been bubbling in my tummy for a week now and I fear that, as with previous years, I may have peaked too soon because I can't believe there are still 23 days to go. I shall have to hibernate for the next three weeks because the suspense may just kill me.
Now so desperate am I that I am contemplating joining the independent minded amongst the population who put their trees up mid November. Yes there is another tradition in this house, the tree is bought 12 days before Christmas and no sooner.
So think of me as I wind myself into a frenzied state of child-like excitement over the next few weeks.
Happy belated 1st day of Advent to you all.
