20/12/14 Day 20! Advent Challenge.

Schools have finished, I think the holidays can begin, but first I need to go and do one last bit of present shopping in town, I am guessing I will be on one very crowed bus!!!
My youngest son won his schools Christmas card competition, he didn't put the words on, it's a church school they added that bit but his design did need to have religious content!

19/12/14 Day 19 Advent Challenge

Today the children finish school for two week, so of course there are a lot of smiling faces around the streets, and our tree is up, a smaller slimmer one this year which is good as it actually fits in the house!!

18/12/14 Day 18 Advent Challenge

The ugly Christmas jumper is everywhere, my step daughter loves them and always treats herself to one from Primark each year! She doesn't live in the U.K and for her it is a great source of amusement!
and my Christmas elves always sit on our mantle piece keeping watch!

17/12/14 Day 17 Advent Challenge!

Hyacinth bulbs, I always try to have a pot of them in the house over the Christmas holidays, I then plant them in the garden for the next year and some old cake decorations which also came from my Grandma's house!

It rarely snows in London but still we like the thought of it and perfect clementines that arrived in the veggie box yesterday, a must for the Christmas holidays.
