thank god for...

the advent calendar! it's the only thing christmasy hanging around the house - well along with camp Dave! How cool is this.. we get to build a new house each day so we slowly build a little village.. the 24th we get to build a church - it really is by far the coolest one I've had for years - thanks mum x x










so no Christmas tree last weekend - all over I'm seeing everyone getting festive with lovely trees everywhere and yet I just feel like it can't possibly be christmas in 11 days as I have done nothing.. this week has not started well.. so it can only get better.. umm maybe not - this week the boy and I are learning how to tile - all looking good so far but I have a feeling the grouting is where it all might kick off!

hey ho - or hey ho ho ho... I'm looking forward to the weekend.. I am going to fester in all things Christmas to start getting me in the mood.. I'm thinking mulled wine, mince pies, christmas films, decorating, wrapping and wearing thick cosy socks and cardis.. umm sounds good.. also have to play dads birthday as well so tradition has always been that christmas only starts after his birthday - so I guess I'm not doing too badly!

  1. Ahh! That is by far the most amazing advent calendar I have ever seen! So much better than a not very nice piece of chocolate! xxx

  5. I love a virtuous (ie. no chocolate)advent calendar and this one looks great, enjoy the next 9 days of building!

    I am still glad of my chocolate one this year, especially when I forget to open it in the morning and we have no sweet things in the cupboard, and then I remember!

    One year my brother asked for the equivalent money to be spent on one big bar of chocolate. My mum said no. Quite right!
