Advent calendars are primed and ready to go. The nativity set (hand sewn by my mum) has been located after much searching - why do I always put it somewhere different every year? The children (who are also primed and ready to go!) will put it out tomorrow. Last year we had the Three Wise Men standing in line with a couple of Storm Troupers, and at one point the Shepherds were hanging off the stable roof. I wonder what mysterious visitors will descend upon our nativity scene this year?!
The visitors brought, not only Tall Girls birthday present, but some cheese! Stinking Bishop no less. Fans of Wallace and Grommet may recognise the name of the cheese but if you've never tasted it then be truly reassured that its name is completely warranted! I do quite like a bit of smelly cheese now and again but this was just too much to bare! Our visitors were relatives so I felt I could ask them to take the stinking cheese away again!I'm sure there is a faint aroma of it around still, even though they've been gone a while. Apparently, their in laws had brought the same piece of cheese over to them on Friday night. Perhaps it will be one of those presents which circulates through the family for years! Eewww!!
The Christmas CD has been full blast in the kitchen again, with Small Sprog dancing around in delight. It is his favourite time of year, he loves the giving, as well as the receiving. He has been making something for daddy, bless him, he loves to give surprises. However he also loves practical jokes too! You can never be quite sure what's inside! Hmm, what would you rather receive!
