Day 23 Advent 2017
It happens that we don’t open our advent Calendars on the right day, that we are a day late or so. I am sure that even the most devoted of readers of this year’s calendar are sometimes a day late in reading. Who am I to blame you? It’s the advent season and we all have so many things to do. As things happened I had no participant for a few days, one of them being the 20th. Unexpectedly, I spend my day moving about, picking up Christmas presents from the printers and when I wanted to go home, I found out that two days before I had not picked up all of the exams that I have to mark… so I went to pick those up and had to hurry home to arrive there after my student) he was 15 minutes early). All in all it lead to no post on my sister’s birthday. Did you notice the lack of a post?The Christmas preparations always come with a few hassles. Planning out the festivities, buying a tree on time, making sure that all presents are in order, mail is sent out… can make an already busy life a little more stressful. Oftentimes someone in the family will come down with a crippling flu or other unpleasant things (especially when children are involved). How comforting can a cup of got chocolate be? Finding some calm with Christmas music, Christmas cookies and some warming candle light.
