|Another quaint Danish tradition...|
burning a candle at breakfast or dinner and watching the days counting down!
Anyway...what have I done so far? Baked the Christmas cake! (See yesterday's post for the recipe.)
I've started buying a couple of extra goodies (Christmas snaps/schnaps, boxes of chocolates) and baking supplies (flour, sugar, icing sugar) when I do my food shop.
I've been through the Holiday Control Journal and know who I need to buy for, what I bought them last year and already have a good idea of what to buy this year. Amazon here I come! ;D
A few gifts are already bought. Wrapped. And hidden! :)

And I've just set myself a couple of goals for this week. We just received the kids' school photos so:
- I'm going to order my Christmas photocards online (our cards always include photos of the kids)
- I'm going to put the kids' photos into (cheap) frames from Ikea and get them wrapped up (we give them to close family members)
