Feeling Festive







I can't believe it's only a few days until Christmas Day! So over the weekend I made sure I got in the festive swing. On goes the Christmas cd.
We invited a few friends round for homemade mince pies and mulled wine. I'm rubbish at baking anything other than sponge cakes, so I roped in my hubby to make his delicious brandy mince pies. The mulled wine went down a treat too! The evening was great fun and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
As it is the season to wear novelty jumpers I thought I'd better purchase one this year. I bought one with bells on to match the Santa hat, which I'd dusted off from last year. A friend popped round for hot chocolate with marshmallows and mince pies (shop bought ones this time!). Then we took a trip to a local market to buy a holly wreath where we managed to get a lovely one for our front door. We even sang some good old Christmas songs with a local choir.
All the presents are under the tree and the kitchen is stocked up. Now  I just can't wait to see what I've been lucky enough to get from Santa. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
