Last Day of the Advent Challenge


While Lovely Hubby was up in Mum's loft yesterday rolling out the insulation, and filling in every nook and cranny of the wonderfully large space we found above her bungalow. he came across these. 

 A brand new, still in it's wrapper headboard, and a really nice little trolley/table, just perfect for someone with a small kitchen.   Mum didn't want them as they must have been there when she moved in last year, so she gave them to us to sell at a car boot sale next year, we decided while we were chatting this morning that we won't be doing any car boot sales next year, instead any decluttering will continue to go to the local charity shops.

So this morning after walking the dogs along the freezing cold promenade in Llandudno, and then braving the Christmas shoppers in Asda to stock up on milk and some chicken for the dogs and Ginger, we called to our local Community Furniture Store and donated the two items.

A perfect finale to our Reverse Advent Challenge, which has seen us donate one item a day to someone who needs it more than we do, instead of opening a little door on a calender and eating a chocolate we've been decluttering our home and hopefully helping someone in the process.


Now all we have to do is hunker down in the warmth of the house ......


... and dream of what Santa might be bringing us.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and that Santa brings you the gifts of warmth, love and laughter, along with a few tasty treats and the odd tipple or two.

All the very Best
