So November has gone, what's coming in December?

I like lists and at this time of year there are several lists on the go.

One of my lists was ideas for my December blog posts now I'm back to daily posting and it's going to be a Christmas photo every day for 24 days. For people who say "Bah Humbug to Christmas" ....... you'll just have to shut your eyes when you read my blog!!

Advent picture 1 is, appropriately, an advent calendar.

Our last Advent calendar was found in a charity shop a couple of years ago but the little doors won't stay shut any more so when I saw this  in a National Trust shop when we were away on holiday I splashed out. Behind each number is a picture showing Christmas decorations from  NT Houses all round the country. I'm looking forward to opening each window.
Picture one was stockings hanging over a fireplace from Ingham Mote in Kent

What's happening this month?
Well quite a lot actually but It's OK  ..............I have a list!
