Second Sunday of Advent




























































































































































































Some simple moments from the second Sunday of Advent. 

♥ A blissful afternoon spent at our local RSPB reserve - we glimpsed many types of birds but only this robin allowed me a photo. 
♥ Seeing the second candle lit on the Advent wreath at church.
♥ Hubs' cooking stuffing to freeze for Christmas - apricot and chestnut. They smelt divine.
♥ A sherry before lunch.
♥ Lighting candles. The circlet of ivy is my little nod to Christmas - we're not getting a tree until next weekend. 

Hope you are well and rested after the weekend - carving out some chill time is definitely a challenge at this time of year. Thanks for reading, commenting and following here this week xo
