Making Christmas preparations.
I've made my mincemeat and my Christmas pudding. I haven't made a Christmas cake and I'm not going to. Each year I seem to drop something from the long list of Christmas to-dos. My advent calendar has not made an appearance this year and George has been declared too old at 20 to have a stocking. I like the way Christmas evolves as the family does.
I have been making a collection of seasonal reading matter. I have;
The Little House in the Big Woods and The Long Winter -books 1 and 6 of the The Little House On the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Hercule Poirot's Christmas and The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie
A Christmas Carol by Dickens
What are your favourite Christmas/winter reads?
Tomorrow I shall be 50. Bring it on.
