Advent calendar time

Today I opened the first window on my Talking Pictures calendar (a surprise present from huskyteer) to reveal

Peggy Cummins.
Not a household name perhaps. She died only last year, aged 92.

I’ve also activated this year’s Jacquie Lawson calendar, which shows an Edinburgh scene with lots going on. I absolutely love ‘my’ Edinburgh house and want to move in immediately. These calendars include so many charming pictures and fun activities; they’re very good value.
