The 4th Edition of the Advent Calendar Needs You!

One month until Christmas

It is the 25th of November! And you know that means that in a month from now you’ll be stuffed with nice food, will have gift wrap torn to pieces all over the place (or neatly folded in a corner of the room), you’ll have piles of books and toys and things you have no use for and don’t much like either piling up in your living room (or maybe not as people know your tastes). 

But for now, we are not there yet. Those who celebrated Thanksgiving feeling a bit rounder after the endless feasting (definitely not fasting) over the weekend. Wallets are lighter after Black Friday sales, which have come to countries where before no one knew this event.

Christmas is nearing!

It’s Christmas!

Well not quite yet. But in two months it will be Christmas. In two months from now, you’ll be sitting quite full next to a big pile of presents, not quite recalling who gifted you what and not knowing what you are going to do with all that stuff… Or maybe you are feasting with your loved ones, helping in a soup kitchen or you are trying to hide from all this Christmas cheer by travelling to a non-Christian country. Maybe you are skiing or slurping cocktails on a beach. Maybe you won’t even be realising that it is Christmas, or you might already trying to figure out how to sweeten your wait till the next one.

Speaking of sweetening the wait until Christmas, I have a big, very big announcement to make.

Drumroll…

You know what I am talking about right? I know you do! Continue reading “Christmas is nearing!”

If we were having coffee – 2 January 2016

Pomegranates
Welcome to my first coffee post of 2016! What would you like? Some tea (as always there is a huge choice of teas and origins), water, apple juice, milk? I am sorry my great aunt’s Christmas cookies are so good that they are all gone, but I have great pomegranates from Turkey, they are huge and really really good.

If we were having coffee, I’d wish you a very happy, good, prosperous, healthy, successful year 2016! Do you have any resolutions for this sparkling new year, any projects? I will be sharing my resolutions on the 18th of January on Melanie Noell Bernard’s blog she is having guest bloggers share their resolutions during January.
