Counting to Christmas

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!
