It’s BlogMas Day 2 – You wanna know what’s on my Christmas list?!
When you think of a Christmas list there are only two questions that usually come to mind. Have you been naughty or nice – am I right?! Well, this isn’t the same sort of Christmas list. This particular list of more along the lines of things that I want to do before the actual day and all of the festivities die down. So, let’s get down to business
Make Christmas Cocktails
Every year I say it and never really get round to it due to a significant lack of time. If I disregard the majority of the things that I have learnt this year and hold on to only one it is that you cannot get time back and that piece of it that you have should be used wisely whilst also enjoying it to the max. This year I WILL be making Christmas cocktails and sharing the recipes with you of course!
Tea at Fortnum’s with a friend
When I think of Fortnum’s I think of fine wines, foods and of course tea. Of course there is a lot more to it than that but they are my favourite bits. The only friend that I think of when I think of this beautiful place is of course the beautiful Catherine. We have a little tradition of visiting Cath Kidston and popping to the tea hall at Fortnum’s afterwards. The next visit we make will be to The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon followed by a visit to The Parlour.
Christmas lights, an ice skating rink and churros – what more could you want!
There is something about the festive chill of the air, quirkiness of the stalls and the smell – or is that just me? There is a certain smell of Christmas that lingers and wafts in just the right way, whether that is the smell of mulled wine or pine.
Make some Gingerbread men
This is something that if I’m honest I can never be bothered to buy so find it a lot easier to just pick up a packet from good ol’ Sainsbury’s. This year however it would be nice to make my own and see how good they taste when fresh. Not being a fan of soft cookies it will most definitely be an experience – but one that I am willing to partake in.
There are a couple of other things that I would like to do but I’m not sure that they will get done before Christmas so I’ll keep those to myself for now.
What’s on your Christmas list?!
