First Sunday in Advent!

I love Advent and today is the first Sunday in Advent. By rights, Stir Up Sunday was last weekend, but what's a week between friends? In any case, I have made up for it today and earlier on, the boys and I lit the first candle!

Today the boys christmas elves and I...
- made our advent posters
- made mincemeat
- made the christmas pudding
- stirred and made our wishes!
- made the christmas cake
- and I bought a advent themed box of tea!

I have already designed, ordered and received the christmas cards, and have done quite a bit of christmas online shopping already, plus some new clothes for boys and got some ski-ing bits and pieces. I feel a bit further ahead than I normally do, but I know how busy work is like to be running up to Christmas...

And like in 2014 and 2015, I want to set myself an Advent challenge to blog every day (catch up on those gaps) and run/walk every day. Let's see :-)
