Do you know what? We’re exactly half way through the Chicago Padvent Calendar. Eight days behind us, and eight more to come. I think you deserve a little treat, especially as you’ve been very good and not had a single chocolate. So I’ve organised today’s window especially, in the hope that it gives you a little pick-me-up, a little burst of energy to sustain you through the days ahead. Not that I hope you’re finding this whole calendar thing a bit of a slog; in fact, I’m really hoping that if I asked you, you’d simply say ‘I’m Lovin’ It’. I know Paddy is. But with whom?
Don’t forget if you’ve missed any windows, they’re all up there in the ‘Where’s Paddy?‘ tab. It’s a St Patrick’s Day miracle – there they sit, all glossy and pristine looking, even if the ones all around them have been ripped into, leaving straggly, half-opened ‘by mistake’ bits of silver foil. Why can’t real advent calendars be like that. Or is it just that Padvent ones have all the luck.
