Advent is here. Marta and I came home from London some time in the middle of the night, had a few hours of sleep and then school for Marta while my task was to have a more than full day at work, ending with a most delicious dinner at a new restaurant in town. So far I haven´t even had time to go down to the basement to find my advent basket, but hopefully tomorrow, in the afternoon, I will be there. And the basket will be willed and emptied, filled and emptied every day until Christmas.
And while I slowly start the advent preparations, I still have a few London tales to share. Like when we walked back to the hotel from the theatre, through the night, Covent Garden, Picadilly Circus, Regent Street, Oxford street. A city filled with light. And beauty.
The next morning, Sunday, the 1st Sunday of Advent, we missed the advent wreath and one lit candle on the table, but knowing that Terje had the first candle lit at home, on his breakfast table, made us feel the light shone for us as well.
It is advent. This year I plan to do most of my Advent posting over in Caffe Avec. There I will show parts of my nativity collection, and also post about the countries where they are from/where they are bought.
