Over on Soule Mama she calls it 'elving'- getting all those jobs done to prepare presents for Christmas. It's what I should be doing, but for some reason I just don't seem to be motivated at the moment, despite running out of time fast! One distraction is getting hold of some more Auracania Multy so I can keep going with making this winter wooly for M. It's going to be some dungarees with feet, made using a pattern from Ravelry. Even though I'm having to use magic loop, it's quite easy knitting and I'm just enjoying the steady rhythm. I'll elve later, I promise!

We fed some reindeer today! If they were Santa's then by the time Christmas Eve comes around they're in danger of being too fat to fly, given how popular feeding them at the local animal park is. Taking advantage of the free entry on offer through the winter, we enjoyed what is apparently a temporary thaw wandering round and looking in awe at giraffes, tigers and the afore-mentioned reindeer. P is gradually building up a picture of what this season is about, with the tree he can't resist fiddling with at least twenty times a day (first bauble casualty of the year this morning!), 'Father Mistmass' as that jolly fellow is currently known- we haven't the heart to correct him- the advent calendars, cards and of course the Nativity scene we added to the Season display this morning.
