Advent – a time for reflection

It’s telling that I haven’t had time to post anything since October Half Term. Such is the world of teaching. I love this picture from The Country Crib. It says so much about my state of mind in advent. One week till the end of term and a straight path has revealed itself from amidst the mists of late November.

Advent is traditionally a time for quiet reflection and preparation. After a frantic twelve months a gentle but firm resolve to do things differently is gradually taking shape. I hope to be posting more over the coming weeks. I hope you find time for reflection amidst all the business of the run up to Christmas. I am sustained by the thought that in a few days time I will have time to plant the last of my tulip bulbs, sweep up the leaves and make a batch of chilli jam for Christmas hampers.

It’s the small things which give the most pleasure.

  1. Hi
    It’s rather late in the day to respond to your post but I just want to comment that it’s great that someone remembers it’s Advent and that Christmas doesn’t actually start until late December!
    Thank you for your posts.
