December Already – Where has the year gone?

Today is the 1st of December and all over social media people are opening their advent calendars, putting up their decorations and starting to eat mince pies.

Well I don’t have an advent calendar, I started eating mince pies in October and I am feeling ambivalent about Christmas decorations.

It’s about this time of the year I start looking at the goals I set for myself and how things didn’t go to plan.

This year is no different in some respects but there was so many things that exceeded my goals and expectations.

So I won’t be rushing to put up any decorations up or trying to get an advent calendar that doesn’t serve me. I hope people continue to get excited by this festive period.

I created a stop motion animation on my mobile phone for the beginning of December. I hope you enjoy it.

The brooch was from the lovely Jane Kent Studio.
