The final day of Betwixtmas and I am using it to take down some of the decorations.
The seed Advent calendar is down and I have found a use for the little bag that was in my recycled from last year decorations calendar ... I knew I saved it for a reason!! It now contains all those tiny little pegs in case I want to do something with all the envelopes next year.
Two final books managed to sneak in before my book buying stops for next year. They had been in my Amazon shopping basket for a couple of weeks and I thought, sod it, why not ... so I did.
I have a book I bought a while ago but saved for the New Year on my now freshly cleaned bedside table.
It's ready for reading a poem a night before I go to sleep, and I need to get the book I started a few weeks ago and then gave up on for Christmas lighter reading off the shelves ... once I have moved all the Christmas cards and twinkly lights from the bookcase.
It's beginning to look a lot less like Christmas here in the Lodge.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers, commenters, blogging buddies, friends and family all the very best for the coming New Year.
And if you are able to stay up until midnight tonight have a drink for me. I've turned into a real lightweight and will most likely be tucked up well before the magic hour.
Here's to a new brighter and hopefully better New Year for us all.
