Joyeux Noel ~ Merry Xmas to all

With only 4 sleeps till Christmas, things are starting to take shape. Waiting for new business cards, putting together photos for my newly registered Etsy shop, cooking miniature Christmas cakes and slipping them in cellophane bags sealed with twine, collecting more fresh fir pine branches to decorate the wreath for the verandah, more shopping for the boys, wrapping presents already stocked away, cleaning, food shopping….my little girl reminds me each morning of the narrowing time!
But as I gaze at the combustion stove where her letter to Santa sits next to a small fruit cake and a dvd for him to watch, I think after all that Christmas hasn't lost its special magic 
Merry Xmas to all ~ Joyeux Noel!
