If you read the same types of blogs I do, you will see posts here there and everywhere about what folks are filling their advent calenders with...small toys, activity ideas, handmade items. Fantastic ideas, all of them. Please check them out if you are at a loss of what to do.
But for me, I believe in CHOCOLATE. Three pieces for each of the days to go in our slipper advent calendar...one for each of us (it did cross my mind to insist on one for the baby as well, but I know where the supplies are hidden, so its probably not necessary).
And while I am at it, I believe it is extortionate to charge £17.99 for a copy of the Burl Ives version Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on Play.com. Its available for FREE every year on the TV in America.
I am going to go eat a piece of chocolate, to help me get over my indignation.
