Well, here we go again, time for the Christmas Wish List, 2015.
Food, Christmas cookware, Presents.
Christmas is coming … and I’m trawling through tons of catalogues about cookware, tableware, Christmas food, Christmas recipes, furry throws and cushions, gardeners gifts – in fact, this will be my own fantasy wish list for this year’s Christmas celebrations. Our Kitchen extension is almost ready, our dining room needs radicaly updating, and the rest of the […]
What a difference a year makes …… This time last year, January 2014, as some of you readers may know, I was incredibly worried and didn’t know who to turn to. 3 days after Christmas, 2013, I woke up to discover 2 ‘lumps’. New Years Eve, 2013, saw me not having my hair or nails […]
