THE ADVENT OF THIS BLOG
- IT WASN'T ACCIDENTAL TIMING -An advent calendar? Yes indeed, one of two I've purchased this year and if you read the first post on this new blog you'll probably have worked out what this is all about by now. The blog itself popped up here on 11th November, exactly a month before what I've dubbed Commodore Christmas Day for myself, the first of many days I have off work this festive season and the day I've chosen to wait to until I can open up my 'brand new' Commodore 64!
Well I always buy an advent calendar every year, usually one with chocolate inside, to count down to my favourite time and this year is no different, with a Malteaser one waiting patiently for 1st December. However, with the start of my Christmas vacation (I'm not going anywhere, it just makes it sound grand) being the big Commodore day I thought why not count down to that one too with more chocolate? I'm sure not many would argue with that logic.
With twenty-five days in these Thorntons ones, today was the first day to open it up and bite down on the first step towards the first of two big days this year. Yes I know the twenty-fifth one is meant to be opened on the day you're counting down to, but who ever remembers to do so with all the excitement of Christmas Day? I certainly wouldn't! I never did understand that about such calendars, so in this case I'm ignoring the rulebook and using that extra day to start early.
What a rebel.
With having secured a CRT TV for the computer too this weekend (more on that soon) my excitement levels are building! Can't wait to share everything with you in just twenty-five days.
