Do you like our Advent wreath? I do. I think it looks very pretty. But for the first time in… as long as I can remember, I have not created it myself. I supported the local economy instead and bought it in our village flower shop. Which is fine, but shows that life has been just so busy that it would have been stressful, not pleasurable, to make it. Apart from Advent calendars, there are no Christmas decorations in the house either, another unheard of fact mid-December!
The only “feeling festive” times so far have been when lighting the first candle on the wreath, listening to Wham‘s Last Christmas, or when enjoying the lovely Christmas markets nearby. First Daughter is visiting us this weekend and the plan is to buy and decorate the Christmas tree. And the house while we are at it. We will also bake Christmas cookies. All this with Glühwein for us adults and Kinderpunsch for the girls.
