The joys of working from home means you are actually in when the delivery or post person knocks at your door. Now you can imagine my surprise when, on a very windy Monday morning earlier this week, my subscription of My Little Box turned up super early in the month! Yay!

Maybe not the writing Christmas cards part but everything, starting with heading over to our local garden centre to choose our perfect tree.
