- eaten a mince pie
- sung some carols
- enjoyed the central heating
As for the mince pie and carols: yesterday afternoon there was an informal advent service at Larnaka Community Church for young families; I went to help in the kitchen, but couldn't resist a delicious mince pie. This weekend I hope to make our Christmas cake and some mincemeat, then mince pies will become a regular feature, but I don't think I've eaten one in November before.
There was only one carol in the advent service, but in the evening we went to a book fair at Grace Church, with refreshments, candles, book reviews, and about four carols to sing. There was also a stall selling Tear Fund Christmas cards, which we can't usually get in Cyprus, so as Daniel's not here to design original cards for us (as usually happens) I bought eighty, and will start writing them soon... maybe I'll even post them before the last posting date!
