Advent Calendar

advent-day-1

A big day in our house – it’s my Knight in Shining Armour’s birthday. He’s enjoying a birthday lie in at the moment.   It’s also our first day of Advent, I know that it’s officially tomorrow, but we’ve opened the first window on our calendar today. The calendar is a bit different this year, not an angel in sight but  a Christmas feast  and instead of opening windows you add things to the table every day. Today it was a mixing bowl(on the right of the picture) for Stir up Sunday, traditionally the nearest Sunday to St. Andrew’s day, when everyone makes their Christmas pudding. I’m cheating this year; I’ve bought a Heston Hidden Orange pudding!
