Advent calendars are a great way to count down the days to Christmas, but once you’ve opened the window, that’s it. If you want to provide a fun-filled countdown to Christmas, then this little book is for you.
I was born in Zambia to parents, ‘pioneers’ of their time, who in 1955 bravely chose to leave the family farm in Northern Ireland to begin married life on the other side of the world, growing tobacco in Africa. Due to my mother’s ill health, my family returned to Northern Ireland when I was almost three years old, and I experienced growing up during ‘the troubles’. My childhood was immersed in marvellous tales of wildest Africa, and the adventures and challenges of living there at that time.
