A Pause in Advent - Three

Joining Floss from Troc Broc & Recup  and friends in taking time out from the rush and panic of Christmas to pause, reflect and enjoy Advent.  

Here is my belated third Pause in Advent, having had a busy, by not too busy few days.

Things are slowly coming together, gifts have been ordered, or thought about... the little wooden Advent tree is filling up and the elf has been discovered in various places.  

The town Carol Concert was last night and I enjoyed singing in the choir for that - brings a lovely feeling and meaning to this time.  Another concert this afternoon which will be a lot of fun I am sure.

My eldest son comes home on Thursday for a couple of weeks over the Christmas period which will be lovely.

I need to start planning the meal and associated shopping list for Christmas Day.  It is not a mammoth affair fortunately, just a special family time.

I should have turned the Christmas lights on!


  1. Your home is looking very festive. Have a lovely time with just your family - we too will be just the three of us but that's how I like it!

  2. There you are!!! Your decorating is amazing. Somehow the festive feeling has not happened for me and I have not put our tree up. We will be having a very low key and relaxed affair, should be lovely.

  3. How nice that your son will be home for a visit. Have a wonderful time!! ( I've been enjoying your pictures. It was nice to see the one of you as it's always great to be able to "put a face" to a blog).

  4. I love singing in the choir too! X
