Weekly Prompts : Advent

We are so late at putting up our Christmas decorations this year, so late with our tree – just so late.  Strangely we were ever so good at sending our cards – they all went last week.  To me that’s usually the first sign of Advent – standing in line at the Post Office for those Christmas stamps.  And, it’s always good to receive a little extra post through the letter box isn’t it?  I’m talking about post that’s actually addressed to you.  In this age of computer gadgetry and electronic messaging that would, quite honestly, frighten the life out of my grandparents if they were alive – I just like opening envelopes I suppose.   Not that Christmas wishes via the mystical ways of the Internet are less appreciated or heartfelt …

Thinking about this old tradition of sending and receiving cards, we received a novel one from some old friends yesterday that I thought I should share it.

For those of you at a certain age you may find this funny – think The Two Ronnies sketch…..it’s a classic.


Oh and if you’ve never seen this classic piece of comedy I’ve found it on YouTube. If you have seen it – enjoy.

Apologies for straying away from proper Advent things with this…..and my usual outdoorsy posts come to that.
