With all the fuss and bother of the storm I have overlooked the fact that Advent is 7 days into the season. The fuss and bother continues as storms move in again and we find the the hail has opened a hole on the roof and knocked holes in the new down pipes. I see that all the new paint work around the windows is chipped as well. Only 5 days to go and this will all be over for us and just starting for the new owners. One thing it does show is that we were right in selling as the upkeep of this big house is just too much for us now.
We have another little complication to add to the mix. My daughter and her partner will be arriving the day we move. Looks like we will have another couple of pairs of hands to help with the moving and extra people in the house until they find somewhere to live. Good thing I kept those extra beds.
Back to Advent. I only realised it was Advent when my Drop Designs Christmas Calender arrived on my computer.
I so look forward to opening a new pattern everyday. They also have a Christmas Workshop site as well. Here you can indulge every knitting and crochet whim you have ever had for making things for Christmas.
I thought that I would start with a house elf for each of my grand daughters. They are so excited to see their Xmas tree up with all the decorations. This will be a Christmas with a difference.
