OK, many people will read the title of this post and groan in a Scrooge-like manner (I’m looking at you Liam), but I love this time of year. So we’re still a few weeks away from Christmas, but at least I wasn’t harping on about it in November.
So what Christmassy things have I been up to already and what am I looking forward to in the coming weeks?
All the Christmas shopping is done and dusted (and wrapped, too).
I have had several mince pies already, and am craving the mulled wine.
Plenty of hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows has been consumed, with much more to come with this festively chilly weather!
The Christmas party at work has taken place – I did opt for beef with the meal instead of turkey so I didn’t feel like I was cheating on Christmas.
I cannot wait to tuck in to some pigs in blankets. Me and Liam will be having our ‘mini xmas’ on 22nd where the sausages wrapped in bacon are mandatory.
I’ll be beginning my Christmas annual leave next Friday – the chance to make absolutely sure that I don’t need to pick up any more Christmassy bits (or treats for Liam as his birthday is on 21st).
Are you getting into the festive spirit too?
