  • hung up the old Advent calendar my mum bought years ago (the wooden bar at the bottom is broken and we did not try to repair it this year)
  • repaired the Advent calendar: the gold foil numbers were falling off so I traced them and then filled them in with an oil based silver marker pen. It looks fantastic.
  • we got advent gifts for each other and managed to fit them in the pockets (with a few exceptions eg. Oreos even mini ones are huge!) I got so stressed out only to realize Adam really didn't have any and I could fill about half of it at least. Spent hours ebaying and browsing and coming up with cute handmade ideas, then got a bunch of treats, so will not use all my ideas.
  • ordered some gifts from Amazon, including some for Adam
