I love summer don't get me wrong, but Winter has all the things I love (other than heat lol ... that's where the wood burner comes in). So, I'm happy with these months, and November for me starts the fun off nicely. The dark nights don't haze me, I can see the beauty in candles and cosy nights in.
So let me show you how winter has been starting for me.
Christmas baking has started; our Christmas cake for starters and then some baking for a friends bake sale.
I attended a calligraphy workshop at Fortnum & Mason, and went to a craft fair with my lovely friend Jo. Simon and I attended a Christmas food demo day at the Aga shop, and I started cooking for the bears.
All things Christmas started; Simon surprised me with the most beautiful Advent beauty boxes from Liberty, and Emma & I swapped our yearly advent gift boxes. This year, I did a surprise one for my friend Maria, I hope she enjoys it. Christmas decorations started going up (it takes me a while), but we got a lovely new tree, so it's starting to look beautiful.
I've spent time with my lovely friends and neighbours at a dinner, and Simon started his round of Christmas dinners.
One more really exciting thing happened this month! An artist from Instagram contacted me, and is making a card from one of my photos of the bears.
All in all, I'm so excited that we're going into my favourite month .... let the festivities commence.
