Let´s face it: X-mas´s only one month away!
We are sitting in the kitchen. It’s only 5 o’clock but totally dark outside. In here at least ten candles are lightning. The characteristic smell of mandarins is in the air. A quiet, blissfull afternoon. Emile is doing her homework and I’m writing a synopsis for my next book project. I’ll talk to my publisher about it on Monday. Ideas are virtually sprinkling from my mind. It would be nice to have a “go” from Olivia. Now, let’s see…
Usually we never unpack the box of Christmas stuff until 1.th December but yesterday I had to go and take out a few items in order to make some sort of X-mas-count-down-calendar for Anna Sofie in London. Nothing advanced, just a 3 meter red and white string embellished with 24 caramels wrapped in golden paper + a few selected paper stars, glass globes, fabric hearts and ornaments tied on in between. The big idéa is to hang the string in the window where it will look great. And to eat one (and only one!) caramel a day.
Immediately Emilie asked if I would make for her too. Of course I will!
