The countdown to Christmas

1 Dec

I have my Christmas socks on and the house is covered in glitter. My coffee is flavoured with gingerbread and there’s mince pie crumbs in the kitchen. Hurrah!!!! It must be time to bring out this year’s advent book tree!!


A mix of old favourites to be rediscovered and new friends to be made. The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that there are more than 24 in this stack. I just couldn’t stop!!! I was given so many delicious recommendations last year and some beautiful new books have been published this year. What’s a girl to do?

Stay tuned and I’ll post some of our favourites as they are opened. And please do join in and share your favourites – I have some wrapping paper left!!

Happy advent everyone! Go and treat yourself to a mince pie 🙂
