You’ve probably gathered from my posts that this year, this Christmas, is very different from the others. Among other things, although I will be doing some shopping on Christmas Eve, I have already done quite a bit.
Apart from the fact that I’ve certainly got the ‘Christmas spirit’, F has definitely got it. And that is making this period even better for me.
“I need candlesticks”, he said a few days ago.
“I have some”, I replied.
“No, not those. I need some short ones. And some candles”
I didn’t argue even if I have candles too. When he has an idea about how he wants something to be, it’s best to let him get on with it.
And so, last night, he came with bags. Bags of candlesticks and candles. Apparently, there will be a LOT of candles at Christmas.
We start with candlesticks. He showed me. It was a simple, couple-of-inches, glass candlestick. I liked it.
“I’ve got six of these”, he adds. And a ton of candles.
I’m not entirely sure of his idea but I think all six will be used.
And, he informed me, he had invited a couple round for New Year. And we invited another couple a couple of days ago. If everyone comes, it will be quite busy but neither of us expect that.
But, at least we’ll have candles everywhere!
