The Advent wind begins to stir
With sea-like sounds in our Scotch fir,
It's dark at breakfast, dark at tea,
And in between we only see
Clouds hurrying across the sky
And rain-wet roads the wind blows dry
And branches bending to the gale
Against great skies all silver pale
The world seems travelling into space,
And travelling at a faster pace
Than in the leisured summer weather
When we and it sit out together,
For now we feel the world spin round
On some momentous journey bound -
Journey to what? to whom? to where?
The Advent bells call out 'Prepare,
Your world is journeying to the birth
Of God made Man for us on earth

Hello how are you ?
Happy Twinkling Advent to you all too!
I've been away from blog land for a short while...
Beavering away with Bumble Bee and taking time out to visit Dean in 'Brum'!!
~ Which was very lovely!
~ Birmingham on the other hand I must say
was "crazy, mad and bonkers" already with Christmas shoppers everywhere to be seen!
Ooh the joys of the season...
has arrived with her gifts of custom, ceremony, celebration and indeed miracles.
She kinda caught me by surprise!
I'm not at all sure how I managed to be surprised by her presence
as Yuletide has been with me in the shop since September!
With wreaths of bright red berries and naughty pixies getting up to all kinds of mischief!
I've heard their distant chuckles from the brightly lit window displays..
'HO HO HO' ...
They can be quite mischievous, you know!
It's that time of year once more where I go home covered
in glitter and smelling of freshly made gingerbread and cinnamon
~ We have been asked to bring out the
in the shop again this year!
It always works a treat..
Folks can get in the mood by writing their name
and the gift they so desire for
We always say
'Wishes don't have to be in Fairy Tales to come true"
and it nearly always helps the men folk out when they enter through
the door looking rather lost and bewildered!
To be honest I am a thinking of adding my own
in the 'Wish book'...
~ But I don't think Santa could bring this just at the moment anyways!
Our visit to Dean was for a very good reason..
He has a bad injury and will be out of running for some time..
His body, I believe had asked him for time out..
~ and he just didn't listen...
He will be home for Christmas time...
and hopefully running/training again by March..
Fingers and toes crossed tightly!
( I have popped this wish in my wish box too)
Sending out wishes is my most favourite
thing to do!
How's December looking for you lovely blog friends?
Are you beating those winter blues...
~ and have you started 'decking the halls?'...
Wishing you all the trimmings of the 'advent' count down...
And hoping to visit you all very soon!
~ With of course a nice pot of tea or even a glass of Damson Gin!
Well 'tis the season to be merry!
Hugs and twinkly kisses..
