My daughter knows that it doesn’t pay to leave things to the last minute; any stress, and the parents start with sarcastic comments and yelling.  So, hoping to get an early start on Christmas, yesterday she organised a wreath- and gingerbread-making evening.  We made four wreaths of about 40 cm diameter and listened to carols.  I figured that if we continued for a week we could sell them for enough money that we wouldn’t have to work next year at all, practically; but nobody cared.  The rose hips come from the garden and the sprigs of Christmas tree come from the pile down the road.
