And so the count down begins.
1st December is a wonderful day for many reasons; you finally get to open a window on your Advent calendar, you can legitimately sing jingles to your heart's content, and you are allowed to shop in earnest. Horrah!
In light of this, and a flurry of emails amongst my family, I'm creating a wishlist of things I really rather like . Please do feel free to buy any of these little beauties for me.
When I first saw the painting of the Arnolfini Marriage by Jan van Eyck at school I clocked the wonderfully ornate convex mirror. The painting isn't half brilliant either (though I think putting that one my wishlist might be slightly beyond the realms of possibility).
So, yes please to one of those!
