It’s the same each year: I either have too many ideas for Christmas gifts or I have zero. 2016 the latter is the case. There are a lot of things that inspire me and that I would like to have for myself but none of these items are really gifts for family and friends. So I’ve spent my past three Saturdays with Christmas gift hunting – not a very nice task in December when everyone else is doing exactly the same. (I hate it when people run into you with their hands full of shopping bags, ignoring other people completely)
Yesterday I finally found gifts for two more people so I am almost done with my Christmas shopping now! (don’t remind me that I still haven’t made and written any Christmas cards yet!) And to celebrate that end-of-the-year milestone I wrapped all the gifts I already have last night and this morning. Poppy Ackroyd’s „Feathers“ is playing in the background, I have hot tea and the rain and wind outside make my living room feel like the coziest place on earth. Have a peaceful and relaxing third Sunday of Advent.
