My 12 favourite things about Christmas

A bowl full of christmas nuts ready to crack.
A car load of goodies a delight to unpack.

Pulling ridiculous Christmas jumper poses.
Debating the plus points of Quality Street vs. Roses.

Everyone’s hair has a sprinkling of glitter.
A surplus family member is freebie babysitter.

Mouth watering oven snacks from M&S.
Tearing off wrapping makes a colourful mess.

Eating (more) cheese and avoiding Boxing Day sales.
Cosy and comfy away from the gales.

Whats not to like when there’s mulled wine on tap?
Plus there’s bonus points for a well strategised nap*.

* although these may be outweighed by embarrassing photographic evidence


This is my entry to the Center Parcs and Tots 100 December challenge. If I’m chosen, I would like to visit Longleat Forest.

My favourite of Nick’s tips is about getting out and about. There is nothing better than a chilly winter walk followed by a warming hot chocolate back at home – or a cheeky glass of red wine ;)


P.S. I have a new book OUT NOW! You can nab it on Amazon here or in your lovely local bookshop :)
