Tuesday 3rd December - Advent Calendars

How many Advent calendars make too many?

Three knitted trees added to the garland I made last year


A stack of twenty-four decorated tea lights, and the third from the stack gently glowing


Mine's the one on the right; each little door hides a different tea bag. His is the one on the left, with chocolates in the drawers.


My chocolate calendar, a present from Himself.



The wall hanging - each pocket contains a decoration to hang on the tree.


Five - so far.

Then there is my Jacquie Lawson calendar


and a couple of on-line calendars

and the Advent Book club book


In the Bleak Midwinter: Advent and Christmas with Christina Rossetti

....that's about it..... no, the Pause in Advent on Sundays.

I've been back at work again today - and I can feel the improvement. Last week I was struggling to walk the length of the school, which has very long corridors, which mysteriously go up and down hill, without pausing for breath. This time I traversed the school several times, hunting down my prey pupils, without having to stop for a breather once. This felt hugely encouraging.

Right. Time for a cup of tea - I wonder what Father Christmas has hidden inside the third door?
