Merry Christmas to all!

I have, probably like a lot of others out there have got a few slightly busy weeks coming up, lots of food to make and devour and be subjected to the inevitable crush when going food shopping!

Last year I got stuck in the car park of Tesco's for over an hour, just trying to exit but that will teach me to go in on Christmas Eve to get a last minute bottle of wine! They apparently are opening at 6am this year right up until Christmas Eve, I have a feeling I may be there at that time, armed with a trolley and mean look in my eyes!! This year I have already bought the wine and beer in!

Luckily I am going to my partner's mums house for the big day, which I am really looking forward to as she is a great cook and does a mean roast! On Boxing Day we have a houseful, I'm about 90% there with menu but keep seeing lots of wonderful ideas on other blogs so forever changing my mind! At the moment is maple baked ham, spiced red cabbage, mash or mini roasties and honey glazed carrots but this may well change before then!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful festive Christmas and a Happy New Year, hope we all eat well and be merry!

This picture is one of my favourite tree ornaments, courtesy of Accessorize and makes me smile when it goes on the tree every year, as I bought the same one for my Mum! I'm sending this picture over to Holler at tinnedtomatoes for the No Croutons Required - December entry


  1. Hi Anne, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year too! Great to meet you in the blogosphere! I think I will slow down in blogging too because I will be away to Holland for 2 weeks.

  2. Have a great Christmas Anne!

  3. Sounds like a great menu to me!
    Happy Christmas and New Year!

  4. Enjoy all that lovely food!

  5. I have the pink version of that kitty. Though, I placed it quite close to the bottom of the tree this year and the cats appear to have stole it as it wasn't there when we packed everything away :S

    Hope you had a lovely Christmas and a great New Year!
