I along with many other bloggers have joined in with Floss's 'A pause in advent' We will be posting on each Sunday of Advent or the following Monday, as is the case here. This is a chance for everyone to share their thoughts, traditions etc during Advent. Advent for me begins with books, lots of books!
I like to get out all my Christmas cookery books and write lists of what I'd like to cook during the holidays.
I then like to plan what I'm going to make as in decorations and gifts.
And of course the things to make at home with Lily or at the toddler group sessions.
I suppose I only manage to make/cook half of what is on my lists but I enjoy the planning.
If you have time have a look at the other 'A pause in Advent' posts. The button at the top of my side bar will take you to Floss's blog where there is a list of bloggers taking part and while you're there read Floss's beautiful post about putting things in prospective.
Today is also my daughter Tara's birthday and for me most of the Christmas planning begins
once her birthday is over. Happy Birthday Tara!
