Merry Christmas!

25th December 2017

It wouldn’t be Christmas in our family without birthday cake! Winter birthdays, big family breakfasts and lots of fun with Woodruff, it goes without saying that Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year.

True, it feels like 2017 has brought more downs than ups (at least in my life), so making it home for the holidays was like a huge sigh of relief and the best feeling ever. Since I’ve been back, it’s been a life of slippers, games, mulled wine and my Mum’s incredible (really incredible) food. I’ve now got a huge stack of books to read too!

This was also the first Christmas in years that we wandered over to our church for the midnight service. It was peaceful, thoughtful and a special thing to do before bed on Christmas Eve.

The highlights? Presents with my parents, baking for my family, breakfast at my brother’s house, being shown what Santa brought my nephews, Great British Bake Off, and watching my Dad trying to turn off his new head torch…

Here’s hoping your holidays are full of fun, family, friends and good food! Merry Christmas!
