The Advent Activity for today was nice and easy : Hang up your stocking and leave something for Santa. That's not much is it?
But today was also spent knocking up some choc-coated peppermint creams, some more Christmas shortbread and some spinach & haloumi fritters (with yoghurt & tahini sauce) ready to be taken to the Christmas lunch tomorrow. We also squeezed in a visit to the supermarket, a visit to my Aunt & Uncle's house to help with preparations for tomorrow's gathering, and a visit to my friend with cancer (who will be home from hospital for Christmas with her boys) to drop off the hastily finished handmade presents and for the boys to have a waterfight. Then we had a great big tidy up of our house so that Santa can walk through in the dark tonight without hurting himself or wondering what sort of slackers live here. There's still a couple of presents to wrap, and a bit of finagling to do because some books didn't make it time from the UK (snow delays) and I just didn't find the time to knit a last washcloth. But I do think in the morning we'll be able to get to where we need to go on time and in an orderly fashion.
Anyway, here it is, Christmas Eve, nearly ten o'clock, and the adults are exhausted. (Last we looked though, both chillun were wide awake.) I'm looking forward to a lovely day tomorrow and wishing all who visit here the same. Peace & love to you all, ho ho ho! See you on the other side.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
