While I miss family and friends I must admit its lovely to not be at Heathrow with lots of bags or in an airplane with cranky parents and tired kids. And its lovely to be done with all Christmas shopping by early December as it had to be sent rather than hand delivered.
Food is planned and some of it purchased. Tree has been moved indoors and been decorated. Its lovely. The 4th Advent candle lit and just a few more days to go!
