I had many things to take care of and none of them was about Christmas! We are leaving for a tour in China in a few days with work, and my list of things-to-do seemed neverending! But I did reach the finishing line and am safely at home now with the basic procedure: candles lit, woolly socks on, soup on the way, phew! And Christmas shopping will come later. One thing at the time.
But no matter how many things needs to be taken care of, I always snap a photo in at least every other corner! I had some sushi for lunch and a cup of tea for dessert. I went to Ichiban in Aikatalo and afterwards the beautifully renovated Svenska Teatern for tea. It's got a good old style theater feel to it but just maybe it was a little bit cozier before the big renovation. But beautiful it is anyway!
