Today is the first Sunday in advent (i have no idea how to use this word in English).
Accorging to icelandic tradition we lighted the first candel in our advent wreath. I bought all the items at a 100 yen shop so the total cost was 500 yen :) it is not much but at least we can light our candels each sunday until Christmas dsy :)
I have put my origami on hold for a few days and now my new sewingmachine is on overdrive.
I have started making Christmas decorations to hang in the ceiling. I will show you some pictures when it is done.
But today we went to Miyoshi to do some shopping and eat dinner. I bought a present for an unknown two year old girl that I am going to send to Iceland and a friend is going to place it under the Christmas tree in Kringlan, the local mall. I started this tradition when Margret was born. I started to give a present to children that might not get a present orherwise and I decided to give a present to a child of same sex and at the same age as my children. So now Margret and I chose a present she liked and I made a giftbag that is possible to use again and again. I hope the little girl that receives it will be happy.
