It’s that time of year again!

Happy advent everyone. May it be a month filled with fun, happiness, excitement, a child’s wonder, magic, togetherness, friendship, mince pies, mulled wine, not being able to find the end of the sellotape, and books!


Some of these are old, some are new, some are borrowed – and yes, actually, some of them *are* blue! I’ll review some of them as we go, although we’re letting Mollie dip in to the tree wherever she wants rather than work top-down, so it’s pot luck all the way!

This is the first year that we’ve made an advent book tree but it won’t be the last! The idea is that it will grow with her and we’ll replace some of the younger books with more challenging ones as she grows up, but keep a core of favourites and bring them out year after year.

I’m excited!
Pass me a mince pie!

    1. It is! (It wasn’t mine- I stole it from a friend)
      We had great fun collecting the books together and wrapping and arranging them. M loves digging through the pile and getting a surprise every night. Best of all, it’s the start of a lovely tradition that we can enjoy every year.
