This Advent is feeling pretty good so far - helped by visits to Harrogate and Copenhagen, no doubt! There was also a significant birthday which ended up being....ok. In fact better than ok, with family and friends and good food and presents. Though mainly I think I'm enjoying it because it's here - and we're here to participate.
The decorations this year seem different - same ones, but definitely used in a slightly different way. Not lots and lots - we don't have small children anymore! - but more a few areas with greenery, candles, fairy lights and baubles. My biggest outlay so far has been on a skimmia japonica and a Christmas rose. Though foolishly I've totally forgotten to take a photo of them - they're decorating the front porch.
And let's not forget the sock knitting! Which, obviously I nearly did. One is complete and the other is about to be started this afternoon. I fully expect to be wearing them on my next pj day.
