Christmas films

Christmas has crept up on me good and proper this year and I’ve been so busy that I’ve almost missed blogging about it altogether save my Christmassy trip to Elveden. Anyway, I thought I'd just have a festive waffle while I've got a spare minute. We've made a start on our 'must-see' Christmas viewing, our DVD and Blu-ray collection expands a bit each year. My personal favourites being The Holiday and Love Actually but essentially anything with a bit of snow and a bit of cheesy festive cheer is fine by me. Four Christmases is one we are missing and is worth a watch if it happens to be on telly again this year.   

mulled winter punch and iced mince pies

If you follow me on Twitter you might have heard that I’ve been consuming iced mince pies at an alarming rate and I’m starting to look like one.  I picked up this Mulled winter punch (non-alcoholic) whilst at Elveden and it is simply divine.! I’ve just warmed it up a little and sipped it out of a mug (classy – yea?) it’s made a lovely alternative to the mulled cider I enjoyed so much of last year.. Plus it was only £3 a bottle which is pretty reasonable.

Christmas fabric

I bought some super cute Christmas fabric with the genius idea of making a Christmas stocking for my Nephew but as yet that has not quite materialised. I’ve got a couple of hours of beavering away if I want to get it finished on time, eeek. Wish me luck!

  8. Iced mince pies - why did I not know about these?! I saw a similar spiced berry punch in Sainsburys and popped a few in my trolley, I'm attempting a less alcoholic Christmas this year (I don't know how you've managed a year - but good on you!)
    I have a hankering to watch The Holiday again, I kinda remember the story but not really very well. I'm going to see if it's on LoveFilm Instants :)
