Ooops, slipped a bit here, haven't I?
The truth is, we've gone off piste, and it always happens - the activity advent is fantastic in the first half of the month when it's early enough to be excited but not yet completely busy with preparation. It gets us in the spirit without being prescriptive. But by the week of Christmas we're all ready to be a little more spontaneous - we don't actually need the prompts any more.
So, we have been to see Arthur Christmas, we've made and sprinkled reindeer food, we've played board games, we've wrapped and cooked, we've hung our stockings, we've been carol singing, we've been to the annual Christmas Eve service next door, we've baked our glorious ham ...
And now it is Christmas morning and I am slowly pottering about before the little ones get up. I reckon I've got about 10 more minutes so if you'll excuse me, there are birds to be fed and coffee to be drunk and then merriment to be made.
Have a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it; otherwise I wish you a very happy day anyway!
