Once again a cold snap has descended and I’ve become surgically attached to my hot water bottle of an evening. Anything that offers warmth and cosiness is what I want to have around me right now: freshly laundered blankets; bowls of hot porridge; thick woollen scarfs. It’s forecast to get even colder with snow on its way so I shall continue to cocoon myself. Read post.
The presents are wrapped and under the tree, the turkey is sitting in the fridge and the ham has been cooked and glazed. I’ve change into my pyjamas and am about to watch ‘The Polar Express’, as I have on the last few Christmas Eves (it’s becoming something of a tradition). But before I do I wanted to write a little Christmas post.
Last Sunday Rob and I went to choose our Christmas tree. I love doing this each year and, although the shops are full of gifts months before and Christmas songs are on the radio throughout December, bringing home the tree really marks the start of the festive season for me. Rob spotted this one and it’s really lovely with a full, bushy shape. I’m a classic and traditional girl when it comes to the tree and every year I adorn it with gold and red baubles that shine under the little lights.
So it’s almost upon us guys; the big one, the Christmas Lunch. For us foodies who love to cook this is it, the most important meal of the year. Are you ready? Are you nervous? Do you have a plan? You most certainly don’t need military precision but a little bit of advance planning will take away the stress and make things so much easier for you on the day. Read post.
