It’s only the last day of November and we have already received our first Christmas card! And Lady M has started prepping for mince pies. Well, I suppose we are guilty of starting Christmas early by putting out some white LED sparkling lights in the garden. I call them my winter lights rather than Christmas lights, just something to brighten up the garden on those dark, winter evenings.

Our Christmas will definitely be quiet but then it normally is these days. I doubt we shall buy a big tree this year but we have already stocked the drinks cupboard, the ham and the turkey are in the freezer and the Brussels sprouts are growing nicely in the garden. Tomorrow is the first of December so I shall open my new ‘Moroccan Spice’ reed diffuser to create an aroma of cinnamon and warm spices in the hallway. We won’t be having parties and celebrations but we will have the spirit and essence of Christmas.
Now, I suppose I’d better start writing some cards.
