Christmas is coming........!
I cannot believe that here I am in August sitting enjoying one of the nicest summers that we have had
in years and I am having to think about Christmas!
Here at the Arbour our dear postman keeps dropping in with our post, his arms filled with Christmas catalogues.
Now,I know it is on the horizon, and I acknowledge I am going to have to face this, and I will openly admit that Christmas is one of my favorite seasons in the shop. (The other being wedding season.)but the girls are having to drag me kicking and screaming into thinking about it just now
when temperatures are soaring.
I am having trouble keeping up with the seasons. Am I the only person who thinks this year is cantering by? I keep asking customers if they would like a nice spring mix!
The colours in the shop will begin to turn from the soft pinks of larkspur and hydrangea into the
muted yellows and oranges of autumn.
But Christmas! Still, I know time waits for no man, and so I must turn my attention to the days drawing in. I need to think about the time we will all need to pull on warm cozy sweaters to keep the chill off, Crackling fires and the heady scents of Christmas. So with that in mind I think a nice cup of something from our favorite tea shop across the road,"Bunty's," a piece of cake to calm my nerves and we will begin to plan something very special for you all.
