A Month at Elf Towers

Over the last few weeks I have been squirrelling away our empty loo rolls for a little project.
 Brown paper has been found. Elves have arrived.


The glue was brushed and the card suck.

The circles cut and the numbers printed.

Forfeits were written, both good...

... and not so good...

The Beansprouts have their advent calendar ready and waiting. And I don't know who is more excited, them or me!

Are your calendars in place for Sunday? Are you a traditionalist with a nativity scene and little doors opening to reveal Christmas symbols? Or do you like a chocolate treat with your tea and toast every morning? Perhaps you have a candle to light for a couple of hours each evening.
Even at the age of fortythree I still get thrilled about opening the advent calendar each morning. Bit of luck I bought one just for me...

Overheard in the back of the car...

Doctor doctor, I've got five willies.

Never mind, your pants will fit you like a glove.
