Advent Surprise

06 Dec

My friend Marianne made me this wonderful advent calendar:


Twenty five little wrapped up presents arrived in a big parcel yesterday. I put them all in slots.

Grown ups don’t always get to enjoy the surprise of opening an advent calendar so I thought I’d share my calendar with you, I’m excited about it. I’ll add a photo to this blog post every day. Day 1 was sweets. I accidentally ate these before I decided to do this – sorry. So here we go from day 2…


The last day was a lovely postcard. It’s my birthday 2 days after Christmas and the gorgeous bird cushion behind the postcard was my birthday present. Marianne you rock!
