I know that it’s only November, but I can’t help a bit of pre planning. Who am I kidding!? I’ve been planning for months! I just can’t seem to stop myself. But I’m what my mother in law calls “a thinker, not a doer”, and she’s generally right. I love lists, I probably write a list for something or other every single day. So this Christmas there’ll be a lot of lists, some stuff I’ll do, and some I’ll plan to do next year. And probably won’t. But there is something I definitely want to do.
The lovely Jen over at www.muminthemadhouse.com has done a fantastic post for an Alternative Advent Calendar, based on acts of kindness. What an absolutely fantastic idea!
For us Christmas is all about family, friends, spending time and just loving each other. This is a brilliant way to spread that a little bit further.
It has been created with kids in mind, but at just 6 months, Baby H is just a little bit too young for any kind of advent calendar, but I didn’t want to miss out on this! So I’ve decided to steal this one for me…I may also have to get him a ‘regular’ advent calendar and “help” him out with those chocolates *wink*. Being a parent can be so hard!!
I love that there’s such a variety of kindness, ranging from charitable, neighbourly and even to wildlife!
Hopefully I can get a printer working (not an easy task lately!) and use the lovely printable that’s available, if not I’ll have to get creative myself! The felt pens are working overtime for me!
Maybe writing this post will help hold me to my word on this one, and I’ll be able to update you throughout December.
