Opening the doors of the advent calendar

The doors of the advent calendar are opening at alarming speed. We’ve chosen the Christmas trees (all real of course),  festooned the tree growing by the entrance  gates with a rope of white outdoor lights, ordered the Christmas Crackers and dug out the boxes of gorgeous festive decorations that we keep specially for the barns –  hoping they weren’t put away in too much of a tangle last time!
