A festive to-do list…



- Go for a walk around the village with Jason and Teddy, admiring all the pretty Christmas lights…and the gaudy ones too.

- Make some honey roasted pecans and cashews for Christmas Day afternoon snacking.

- Tie a piece of ribbon onto Teddy’s collar, to make him look so pretty and festive.

- Persuade Jason to watch The Holiday with me, preferably on Christmas Eve!

- Take a candlelit bath whilst watching A Christmas Carol and drinking peppermint hot chocolate.

- Remember how lucky I am to have a lovely home, and a man who loves me more than anyone in the world, and a little furry sidekick.

- Buy some pretty red string or super fine ribbon, to go with my red, white and green wrapping paper.

- Make gingerbread, and decorate them with white icing and coloured sprinkles.

- Try and do a little Pilates over the holiday period, even though term ended last night and I don’t really like practising at home.

- Spend a day wearing comfy clothes (slippers, pyjama bottoms, a thick knit jumper) and *not* going online at all.

- Put any change I have into charity collection boxes, whenever I come across them.

- Experiment with ways to make orange-cinnamon-hot-chocolate.

    I am scheduling my posts for the Xmas break so that I can have a few days offline. I think it will do me some good.

    Such a lovely list! I’ve already watched The Holiday, sadly without my boyfriend who kept spoiling it shouting at FIFA over it, pssssh! xo

    You could try melting Green & Black’s Maya Gold chocolate into milk & cream to create the cinnamon-orange hot chocolate you’re thinking of! Perhaps infuse the milk with some orange/clementine zest and a cinnamon quill to bump up the flavour…

    Okay, the bath-hot chocolate-A Christmas Carol is the best idea I’ve heard this month. Definitely doing this.

    These are my kinda to-do lists! I really haven’t thought about what I’m doing for the coming week at all, besides making mince pies. So that’s a very short, very happy to-do list! (I’m very happily trying to forget about the pile of deadlines I’ve got in January) xxx
