Well we can’t let the kids have all the fun. We are all over the Advent Calendars for Grown Ups. It’s a horrible dark winter morning, you’re out of bed at way-too-early o’clock; what better way to cheer yourself up before you head out into the cold and wet than to open a little door full of joy – that is ALL FOR YOU? I mean, some self-indulgence now and again never goes amiss (‘self-care’ I believe we call it these days). Something to either kick start your day, or to keep back for later when you get home (by then you will have really earned it, right?). Here’s our list of our totally top favourite Advent Calendars for Grown Ups, just for us, not for sharing, nope nuh-uh…. ssshhh (*whispers*.. Merry Christmas to me).
