It’s Advent Calendars Akimbo!

Bournmoeth 128
It’s finally here, it’s Advent,  our favourite 24 days of festive anticipation and counting down of choice!
Cadbury Advent Calendar 1
Darrell and I have decided to give up chocolate for Advent, but decided that it wouldn’t be fair to expect Nigel to abstain, so we clubbed together and got him a Cadbury Advent Calendar and have asked him if we can just sniff the chocolate each day to tide us over!

However ….. look what Granny G has sent us ….
Musical Advent Calendar 2
……. a magical Christmas Tree of an Advent type nature, that lights up, plays tunes …….

……. and has twenty four little drawers with tiny decorations in, that you have to place on a branch each day. 
Avon Christmas Tree Advent Calendar
We have given Nigel that responsibilty, which we know he will embrace robustly. Today’s decoration was a little green candy cane, which unfortunatley is rather camaflagued against the green of the trees boughs.

The first day of Advent has been filled with awe and wonder…. we are very blessed in a Hello Magazine type way!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as
though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely
know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
