It's no good


I can't resist temptation any longer - it's time to get a few Christmas decorations out. I've pondered about when to start, for the last week, and today I've thrown caution to the wind and thought 'what the heck' - a few won't hurt!

The glorious advent calendar hubby bought certainly didn't disappoint. Sometimes advent calendar's look great on the outside but not so good on the inside. The pic's are so sweet.



Time tonight to open a bottle of mulled wine and indulge in a few chocolate truffles.
Cheers!

I've been pondering the same thing too these past couple of days, but the hubby is being a bit 'bah humbug' at the moment so I may dot the odd Christmassy thing around here and there at the weekend as I'm sure he won't notice - he is a man after all!!

I was visiting your blog for the first time today and I noticed that you had a pile-up soldier in your title photo. I have one that is similar, and since I'm starting to put out my christmas decor too, I think I'll go take a picture of my little wooden soldier and post it.
