Stille Nacht...

Things that have been keeping me busy (and happy) this week:

- Pulling out the Christmas decorations one by one whenever I have a minute to spare and putting them up

- Filling the house wth the smell of ginger, cinnamon, spices and candied peel when I bake

- Watching the rows of hazelnut stars march out of the oven

- Singing Christmas carols to the little boy, and dissolving into giggles with him when he tries to "sing" along with me

- Watching Tim with his little boy

- Watching the little boy... sleeping peacefully, full of milk, his sweet little lashes against his cheeks

- Seeing the grandparents enchanted by their first grandson

- Ordering beautiful wooden eco toys online for his first Christmas (not that he knows what it is yet, but he will next year!) and getting squealy-excited when they arrive

- Taking time to swallow my pride
