Has it been cold where you are? We have had heavy frosts this week and it snowed in east London so daughter no. 4 told me! It is time for hot meals and cosy evenings. Tonight we have a chorizo and mixed bean stew served with oven roasted potatoes, sprouts and broccoli, followed by some homemade banana and cinnamon loaf.
I'm really hoping to do some crafty projects this weekend and begin to get ready for some Christmas gifts I hope to make - I will be sure to take some photos. We have decided as a family to do the 'secret santa' idea for this year so we will all pick a family member's name out of a basket and just buy one present for that person. It will make for a simpler Christmas which I am all for. Have you seen the shops recently?!! It is crazy out there already and so much choice it is enough to give you a headache before you even start! Or am I the only one opting for a simple Christmas this year? I suspect not. I'll be back soon.
