We’ve been smoothing out the creases in the window stars, trying to revive hardened blu tack, looking for those little snowmen that I am sure were in exactly that bag last year… The advent calendar has been filled, three trays of biscuits baked and two and a half trays worth of biscuits have been eaten.
One candle lit every day. Every day, questions answered on when exactly the next one will finally be lit, when oh when.
I have moved my lists from random pieces of paper and notebooks to a notepad.
I need to be able to rip pages off, not just cross things out. Every morning begins with coffee, and the organisation in my head, trying to gauge what I might get done today. Nothing worse than an insurmountable to-do list.
Christmas carols are ringing in my head and I’m loving it. Evenings spent quietly elving away, making Christmas presents for me to give, and other people’s too. Click clack go the needles, a stitch here and there.
What’s still missing is fairy lights. Don’t you love fairy lights? I have an ancient one that is still looking for a home in this our new-ish home(and probably an extension lead). That’s certainly no.1 on tomorrow’s list.
It’s not always easy to conserve the magic amidst the madness of these early days of advent, but I am sure to try my very best.
Happy Advent to you!
