So Christmas is just around the corner and the kids have finally finished at school. The atmosphere in the house is electric with excitement. Favourite thing #1
The tree is decorated, and despite the alarming wonk, is still standing in the corner. Favourite thing #2
Everyone is a bit tired due to the aforementioned end of term excitement + lack of sunlight, so I get to laze around a bit and read, in between making hot chocolate and cutting out snowflake decorations with daughter #1. Favourite thing #3
Walnuts were on offer in the supermarket about a month ago so I bought far too many of them and will be eating them with dates and satsumas well after Christmas has finished. Favourite thing #4
Our new wood-burning stove was installed just in time for the frosty weather, and even though the weather people now predict rain on Christmas day, I shall be lighting an aromatic fire and huddling down next to it to drink my sherry. Favourite thing #5
Mulled wine and mince pies! Favourite thing #6
I did my final - please god let it be the final - food shopping trip and bought croissants for breakfast on Christmas day. Favourite thing #7
We're hosting Christmas this year for my family and will be travelling down to Devon at the end of the week to be hosted by my parents-in-law, so double Christmas dinner! Favourite thing #8
I've managed to find some cracking presents for people this year and can't wait to hand them over Favorite thing #9
I've finally remembered to buy the Christmas Radio Times and will be going through it with my biro and marking the 'must watch' programmes. Favourite thing #10
So that's my Christmas. How about you? What are your top Christmas treats?
Whatever they are, hope you enjoy them!
