Here's what I wrote on day 12 of Journal Your Christmas last year: No one Christmas stands out as a classic. I seem to remember Christmas as a montage: visits to Nana early evening on Christmas Eve; presents in pillowcases (always a selection box, 30 felt-tip pens and pads of geometric patterns to colour in); traditional Christmas lunch with turkey, beef and pork; the Queen's Speech; Dad proposing the toast, "Here's to temperance" and Nana replying, "Perish the thought!"; singing Christmas carols and being able to sing the descant; Christmas cards hung on string banners; anticipation of the New Year's Eve party.
My GiveAway this week is a concertina minibook (it will look something like this one). If you would like a chance to win it, please leave a comment to show that you dropped by; become a follower of this ordinary, run-of-the-mill blog if you'd like a 2nd chance of winning. The random number selector thingy will choose the winner at 4pm (GMT) on Tuesday, 8 December.
I'm also offering a GiveAway here and a Christmas Challenge with a prize here ~ it would be great if you stopped by either or both of them.
In the mean time, I hope you like the newest additions to our Christmas collection and Happy Festive Pink Saturday!
