An alternative advent calendar...

Recently you may have noticed that over on my facebook page I have been posting a festive pic pretty much every day (sometimes a few in one day if I have been a busy or forgetful bean!)

This is my very own advent calendar this year. "What? No chocolate?" I hear you cry! Well... as much as I LOVE my food, I don't really have a sweet tooth so over the years whenever I have had chocolate advent calendars I have always ended up with lots of open doors and left over chocolates (or my sister got double when we were little!)

So this year I decided to create my own visual advent calendar on Instagram and I've really enjoyed doing it! I have actually been meaning to blog about this since I started on 1st Dec but this month (like most of the year) has whipped by me with all of the festive adventures and fun times that have been going on so here I am on Day 21 and only just waffling at you about it...

Still better late than never eh? And I have 20 lovely photos to share with you in the post now! YAY!
