Isn't it funny (or maybe not), how, as a special event approaches, such as Christmas, the days seem to concertina? So we are left thinking where has the time gone?
For me, this year I don't have so much to do. At least that's what I started out thinking, then I keep adding on things to do, and before you know it... same as always, too much to do in too little time!
There's just the two of us for Christmas dinner.
The three hounds will be having their share although they won't be sitting down to eat with us. Unless my husband has other plans!
We've had the Christmas decorations up for a while but only got the tree this week. Mike cut it down from behind our barn. He couldn't do it any earlier as there was too much snow, he couldn't see what he would be cutting! As it was the tree had to thaw on some towels to catch all the snow and ice melting off it before I could put the tinsel and baubles on it.
I made some mincepies. I often make them on Christmas Eve as I listen to the carol service on BBC Radio 4. But I made enough to eat some now, and the rest are in the freezer.
In the Uk we always celebrate Christmas on 25th, but here in Sweden the main day is Christmas Eve 24th. Mike and I will sit down together for our Christmas dinner on 25th.
Some of us can just carry on taking it easy until then!
