A Pause in Advent week 2

I paused for a little bit too long this week and realised at 1.30 this morning that I hadn't done a blog post on Sunday. It has been a rather hectic weekend with a meeting, a book sale, Christmas shopping and laying a carpet. I usually decorate my house during the first week of December but this year I appear to be behind with everything. Yesterday I managed to get one Christmas tree up helped by my 3 year old, very stressful :) We also got out the Christmas house, which has become a Christmas tradition for us, this is a 1/12th scale miniature house, made about 6 years ago. Lots of the items in it were made using Fimo, which was my passion at the time. The photo was taken last year and not a very good one but the weather is too dark at the moment making it virtually impossible to get a decent photo. I will have to try and take some better ones when the sun comes out, maybe some close ups of the miniature Christmas food.

A lovely house - what a fantastic tradition! We have something that we put out every year as well which my older son made when he was quite young, but I'm still waiting on hubby to get the decorations down from the loft.
