Just a quick post - a final pause in Advent. Can't believe there's just 5 days left. I am sticking to my keep calm and don't panic mind set but there's the occasional - panic & freak out thought rushing through my mind too!!
There is no theme to today's post - except maybe a loose festive one and one of family (my favourite theme).
We have escaped the heavy snow that everyone else seems to have had but it is still bitterly cold here. It was the same yesterday when we made our annual trip to Snape Maltings to watch Father Christmas arrive by barge. Looking back my final pause last year was about this event!! Guess I am really a creature of habit. However there were differences from last year - no snow, no big son (he was still in bed!!) and little son was not watching the band play but playing with it :)
Like father - like son
One very happy small boy - he's now the shortest member of the band and absolutely loves being out with them. He's got two more carol playing sessions this week and then he can put his hat & tunic away for several months till they start playing out again in the spring.
Here's the man of the moment arriving on a barge along the river - he was very vocal yesterday - was wondering whether he's got a part in a panto somewhere ;)
Right today's a manic Monday, hospital appointment, present wrapping and then a sisters get together tonight to exchange not-so-secret-santa pressies and have a glass or 2 of something!!
Keep warm & calm ;)
