First Sunday in Advent

Newmarket Merry ChristmasIt’s the weekend, and only 29 days to go until Christmas Day.  On my way back from London this evening I stopped off in Newmarket to do a little shopping.  With the Christmas lights on and the bustle of a busy of a cold Friday night it really feels like Christmas is on it’s way.

I got back in the car and was relaxing listening to In Tune on Radio 3 when they mentioned that on Sunday afternoon at 4pm they would be broadcasting an Advent Carol Service live from St John’s College, just down the road in Cambridge. I’m really looking forward to this and will be planning my Sunday to make sure we can sit down at 4pm and enjoy this.  My husband is really into his HiFi equipment and will no doubt be streaming the Radio 3 High Definition sound into our sitting room.  This will really mark the official start of the Christmas season.

Have a lovely weekend, all being well I’ll be back tomorrow with some more Christmas gift ideas.
