Thank you all very much for the lovely comments yesterday. I think I have replied to them all and very much appreciate them. I also seem to have some new followers so a warm welcome to you!
Yesterday was a good day and the drive over to Mum and Dad's was absolutely lovely. Clear roads, moving traffic, no hold-ups and the sun was shining. Best of all, I had remembered to wash the windscreen so there was much less sun glare on said windscreen than there could have been!
I bustled around early morning, getting stuff done and organised and made a few plans for sorting out the mess in my bedroom (again). I need to make better use of the high cupboards for things I don't want to chuck but which aren't needed very often; that would sort a few things out nicely, I think. I also have to deal with the small bedroom, the one over the stairs, as I am likely to need it over Christmas and it's my dumping ground.
So - I made plans!
Today I have ironing, cooking, maybe a bit of shopping and generally being there so not too busy. I'm hoping to be able to spend plenty of time on my knitting - that would be good. Weather permitting, I'd like to go out for a walk, but we will see!
Have a lovely day and remember to burn that advent candle, open that door in your advent calendar or do whatever you do once December starts. I'm afraid my candle will have to wait!
Here's a favourite advent carol ever - always has been since I was little. It's very old and very 'modal' and beautiful (I think).
