The Simple Things Issue 78
A MERRY MIDWINTER
Nibbles & drinks - Baking for pleasure - Giving good books – A pantomime -
Seeing old friends - Three wise women - After dinner games - Quiet days at
home - Songs about snow - Making decorations
Christmas time overflowing with meaning, yet sometimes the chance to take
stock, remember absent friends and think of others seems to disappear among
the flurry of preparations. How much better then to weave in a quiet side this
December, to celebrate the whole midwinter season, making advent a more
contemplative, less perfect but just as joyful a place. Where suppers with old
friends, silly jumpers and the odd Blue Peter-style decoration feel right at
home. This is a countdown to Christmas, The Simple Things way.

Taking time to live well
The Simple Things is published monthly and is all about taking time to live well.
We celebrate slowing down, enjoying what you have, making the most of where you live, enjoying the company of friends and family, and feeding them well. We like to grow some of our own vegetables, visit local markets, rummage for vintage finds, and decorate our home with the plunder. We love being outdoors and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with a job well done.
And we like to think that the small things we do will make a difference in the long run – whether that’s making, upcycling, growing, cooking, entertaining, escaping or relaxing.
