December 2, 2008 Advent

I’ve got one of those calendars which is fabric, used every year. It has rows of red stockings, and Father Christmas pulling his sleigh at the top. My mum fills it with surprise sweets. I love it.
If you haven’t got one of these, get one! It’s more special than those cardboard ones you can pick up anywhere. Here’s a few of my faves:
