I know I said I wouldn’t be back for a month but I’ve been designing an advent calendar on and off for a little while and thought it made a whole lot of sense to post this before advent started, incase you want to have a go at making it. I decided to well and truly ditch a typical Christmas colour palette. Perhaps I’m feeling a little jaded by all the reds and greens that saturate the shops. Each box can hold a chocolate, sweet, toy, message or anything you like.
Today is moving day! We are waving good bye to our cosy, little flat in Basingstoke and transporting all our worldly possessions to Shepherd's Bush in Laaandon town! God has graciously helped us raise money through some very generous people, which will fund Nick's year as a pastoral intern. He'll be working for a newly planted church in Shepherd's Bush, which is really exciting. You can follow his journey on his shiny, new blog. After 4 years I will finally be living in the same place as my work, a surreal notion after becoming a seasoned commuter. Amidst all the fun and excitement of a new start it's sad to be leaving our first home together, as well as both our families and close friends. I'm taking this opportunity to have a break from blogging for a month, in order to settle in to life in a new place, as well as catching up on four other projects I'm working on for friends. See you in a month!
