I think I'm back

Thought I would put this lovely rose called Silver Jubilee on as we are heading into dark nights and winter, we can remember the lovely summer we have had this year in the UK  I didn't see much of this year's beautiful summer

I have had a bit of a bad year to say the least and it hasn't finished yet.  We had three field mice who invaded our house.  Caught two humanely, one was set free on a grass-verge near the local public gardens and the other was set free up near the stables by a lovely couple of friends, not sure what happened to the third.......  My husband spent six months in and out hospital with a brain tumour and the day he was discharged my poor dad went into hospital with another mini stroke which has left him quite noisy so have had to resettle him in another care home.  Mini strokes and Dementia do not mix.

Regular readers as you know I like to do an Advent Calendar blog each year.  Its nearly that time of year again!  I would still like to do the Christmas Advent Calendar as it has become a tradition on my blog for the past few years and this year despite of not having the time or the brain power to think of twenty four ideas I was wondering if I could ask for a little help of you wonderful people who join in for two Christmas words that mean Advent or if you remember the pictures from the old Advent Calendars before chocolate ones, yes there were such things, and I will use the words in this year's list. 

Please say you will join me again in putting twenty-four little Christmas pictures on your blog as if it were an Advent Calendar?  Saturday 1st December is the day we start opening doors on the Advent Calendar or in our case one picture per day for the blog posts.   You put a different picture on everyday leading up to 24th December.  You can use your own photos, taken recently or from the family album/archive taken years ago, or use little films/cartoons from You Tube.   I will list the names in November of who is joining in  The Advent Scavenger Hunt has a new home here
