It is a quiet time of year here. The time between autumn and Christmas. Today I wrote my Christmas cards and raked up leaves in the garden so perhaps I have both autumn and Christmas.
Christmas is quiet also. We are a small family so very little shopping and present buying. We decorate the house very simply with holly and ivy and then the Christmas tree will be brought into the house on the weekend before Christmas. Sometimes I feel I miss out on the hustle and bustle of Christmas but on lovely quiet days like today, I'm glad we keep things simple.
