• Hi lovelies..do you do the Christmas countdown in your home? I’m not getting one this year because trying to explain to Charley that ‘no, you can’t open every box or envelope at once’ is just not worth the drama, but i do like the idea. I’ll never forget when i was 6, our teacher, a rather formidable nun called Sister Theresa gave us a printed calendar with to do’s on it – from tidying your room to saying prayers for poor people at Christmas – i’ve never forgotten it. So, while i like the idea of a cute little gift in each envelope, i love the idea of interspersing acts of service in amongst the treats even more. But back to the ideas and crafts…take a look – maybe there’s something that appeals to you…
