Day One :: A Calendar

It has become a bit of a tradition that I do a  daily post in December in the lead up to Christmas... if you can call four years a tradition. A blog style advent calendar if you like. The past month has been so busy that I wasn't going to do it this year but I couldn't help myself... so here we go, against my better judgement, with Day One and our real advent calendar is up.... as it was in 2010,  2011, 2012 and 2013. I wasn't going to bother with the real calendar this year either but my 25 year old child was looking a little disappointed. So here it is again with its little chocolate filled bags.
 
 
And if you pop back tomorrow I'm hoping I'll have the Cracker tutorial ready. Just a couple more photos to take if it manages to get light which it doesn't seem to have done all day today.

 
And of course, if you are feeling crackers festive enough to join me in a daily count down to Christmas, let me know and I'll add a link to your blog. See you tomorrow!
 
Also joining in... Sandy

  7. It will be lovely to follow along your daily countdown to Christmas and read your various posts! I think that a little chocolate a day in December is essential eating myself! xx

  8. We have a Lego countdown calender which my son used to LOVE, but that was it. Now he could care less, so I'm off the hook. Those bags look awfully heavy ... how much chocolate is IN there?! Wendy x

  9. I usually post frequently, but have been working on things I can't show at the moment. SO, I will try to post daily through December along with you. Some days will just have to be short with an interesting photo of some sort or another.

  11. You are a glutton for punishment! Where do you get the energy? I can barely manage a post a month so a daily does is a non starter... needless to say I won't be adding my name to your list. I'll let you do the work and enjoy from the sidelines!
