I'd hate to break with tradition so today on this first day of December I'll give you the same picture that I think I have posted pretty much every year since I started blogging ( I can't actually be bothered to check so it may be a slight exaggeration!)
Our advent calendar is up, hand stitched by me many years ago and finished late one November 30th... Or possibly even in the early hours of 1st December in the days when there were four small boys living here. As ever the little bags are filled with chocolates. And yes, the four small boys are grown up and gone away and there are just two adults in our house at present since you ask. Is that a problem?
