    Merry Winter Solstice.
    Today was a present.
    On the subject of presents Iíve finished wrapping mumís presents but I still have a ton of decorating to do.
    I saw some birds in the garden today. As Iíve been sleeping in again theyíve been quiet when Iím up. Today I saw something smaller than a great tit. Maybe a little smaller than a blue tit. It was a coal tit. Then I saw its partner. Then I saw both of the blue tits too along with a wood pigeon. I saw two rather round looking ...

    Itís an elf. I think.
    So I was going to do this earlier but I forgot. Itís now the 21st so thereís only four days to go. Are you panicking yet?
    My thoughts today have mainly been occupied with a 17 item shopping list. Thatís 6 items that made it onto the board in the kitchen (I stuck a little whiteboard to the freezer last year. We mainly use it to note down items we need to get since weíre usually in the kitchen when we realise we want more of an item) about 5 ...

    An angel.

Itís a bit long and Iím still feeling drained from yesterday. So I wait and see what happens in the day so I can write about that if need be.

    Iíve been a bit annoyed with myself. I did things yesterday but not today and I only got up an hour later but I went to bed about the same time, maybe ...
  4. Day 18 What the Heck is That?

    Well. I think itís supposed to be a shepherd, since the little piece by piece story behind every door is a slice of this Christmas story and today says ďShepherds were living outside the town, guarding their sheepĒ. But it has a cute little moustache and a big round nose so it looks more like an otter playing dress up. But I think itís definitely supposed to be a shepherd. Not sure what heís holding though. Itís too square to be a sheep.
    I was a shepherd once in the school nativity so I know. ...

    (Alternative title: Itís Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas Tree)

    It was another big one today. A lovely little reindeer face with long curly antlers. That would look lovely as a little cake topper too.

    I am so so happy today. The cards are no longer my problem

    I stamped them before bed and left everything and I mean EVERYTHING mum would need to fill out the cards.
    I left the cards on my desk in a neat little pile. I laid out all three ...
