The Third Week of Advent

Today is the third Sunday of Advent
we are counting down and
now there are only ten days until
that most magical night of the year
Christmas Eve.

On Friday December 5th
I posted my parcel of Christmas gifts
to my family in France.
I've had enough of the crowded shops
so it's a good thing I have only
a couple more things to get.
I hope you are enjoying this wonderful
season and having time to
listen to some good Christmas music
such as the Downton Abbey CD.

We are having our work Christmas lunch
and I finish for the year on Tuesday 23rd.
I can't wait!

I'm joining Donna for
December Photo Challenge 
and Judith for

Thank you for all your comments

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

Your angel is quite beautiful with the glass just behind it, and your Christmas photos are beautiful.

With so many appointments of beauty and whimsy around you I bet you're ready for Christmas.
I was good with overseas deliveries this year but I still have some picks to do...
I'm thinking in taking some days right on top of Christmas and do as your suggest.
Enjoy The Season, Shane. Many Blessings,
