I am feeling what is likely to be a short-lived enthusiasm for Advent and Christmas. As they get closer I will probably get overwhelmed and want to have a lot of naps, but right now I am thinking about filling the Advent calendars and about what I'm going to get the kids for Christmas. Dolls or purses for the girls. I am thinking a Doctor Who Christmas for the boys, which will probably beat last year's Loud Annoying Toys theme.
Plus the kids might- might!- be old enough, maybe, for carol singing and Advent candles and stuff. Maybe.
