A: Bubbles on the bridge
T: New kicks don't stay white for long
Just four weeks left until 2013 is over. But lots to pack in before then. December always takes me by surprise (actually, each new month is a little like that) and I'm one of the panicked shoppers now wondering what the hell to buy for my nearest and dearest.
Last Sunday was the day traditionally spent stirring up the Christmas pud and cake but I did neither. The times I've made fruit cake in the past I've ended up eating most of it as I live with dried fruit-averse weirdos. This year, we'll probably attempt a yule log or something the kids can help with (baking AND eating), and I'll buy myself a teeny cake as a nod to tradition.
Oh, I do so love this time of year. Not only is it Christmas but it's also my birthday, and I am a fan of both celebrations. Right now I'm putting together an advent calendar for the kiddos (nothing like the last minute) and plotting and planning tree purchases, and pinning like mad to my Christmas board. Have a look, if you fancy.
