Weekend Book Buzz – 8/9 December 2018

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! You know it’s nearly the end of the year when the ballet concert is all over for another year. And guess what? Our ballet concert was yesterday. It’s always such a rewarding day, seeing all the year’s hard work come together in yet another fantastic concert, but then there’s that sense of, “Oh. Ballet’s over for the year. Christmas is getting really close!”

Is there something that happens each year that says “Christmas is really close” to you?
