Today it's the fourth of Advent. Lucas looked at his nearly empty Advent (package) Calendar this morning, counted the few remaining presents, and his whole face shone up with delight - "Mummy, it's almost Christmas!".
We have also experienced a miracle. The furniture we ordered OVER six months ago (!!!), finally arrived! Amazing! Now finally, the downstairs too looks inhabited properly. We got a bookshelf for the hall part (it's still a bit empty, but I will get there), and a buffet table for the dining room part (it's all one big room really, but you know).
Now we just need some more rugs, some more wall decorations for some empty spaces, a few mood creating lamps and a bar of course! Then it will be just perfect!
