It’s like my previous post sucked out all the energy in me that I have declared myself unavailable to blog. No. Reality is that, I have been swamped with work, lots and lots of work because a work colleague is leaving the company and there will be no replacement. We have to suck it all up and divide his work duties among ourselves.
And also, I have been hiding under the rock in an attempt to be as crafty as I can trying to do an Advent Calendar project for my daughter. I’ve just been acquainted to this Advent Calendar thing recently – a very creative and fun way (especially for bright eyed children) to count the days down to Christmas.
Each box numbered 1-25 has a surprise treat inside for your child to open one at a time until Christmas day (some until Christmas eve).
When I saw this 20 Creative Advent Calendar ideas – all I can think of was go home and do it, do it, do it!! My daughter looked at her restless mother and thought where her real mother had gone. There’s a long three day weekend ahead of us starting tomorrow and really, this is something a working mother would wish for: longer weekend and doing something memorable, beautiful and meaningful with her children!
(I am posting beautiful and sophisticated advent calendars but making a really simple one involving the Japanese art of folding paper: origami)
