I’ve always enjoyed the simpler aspects of Christmas and find this more so as my hair diminishes.
Yesterday we lit our Advent calendar (thanks, Neil) for the first time, an event I find helps put everything into perspective.
Like many, I’ve had a hectic, challenging year and look forward to slowing down at Christmas and enjoying time with loved ones. It’s also a good time to reflect on all around, appreciating what I have, not what more I want for Christmas. More of this or that doesn’t necessarily improve life.
I also aim to resume publishing Candyfloss and Pickles, which has halted briefly, while Oh, What a Lovely War! and Vicar of Dibley productions have dominated life.
So here’s to simplicity, Christmas, Life and day two of the Advent candle!
