* the house feel like Christmas, slowly. Although, unbelievably, I still don’t have my fairy lights up. They all have German plugs and I can’t find any of the socket converters, but I know somewhere we have lots… Hmm..
* knits and gnomes, the last custom orders for the shop this year, after most of my gift knits are on their way to under friends’ and families’ trees. Busy days.
* to various Christmas CDs in our small collection. I love the choir ones, but to be honest, I could also listen to Robert Downey Jr sing River all day long on this one.
* Well, everyone else has to listen to me incessantly sing Christmas carols, I hope they don’t mind too much. We found this book at the library, which has my favourite, Gabriel’s Message, and other carols, interspersed with chapters of the Christmas story. Lovely.
