It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Blogmas! : Day 1

Hello lovely festive reader!

As the title of this post explains, it is December 1st, which means that it’s finally time to dust off your Santa hat, bulk buy the mince pies and justify every lazy decision with the phrase ‘it doesn’t matter, it’s Christmas’! The festive season has arrived, and I’m excited for every minute of it.

So I am taking on the challenge of Blogmas- I will be making a lot of food, doing some festive decorating, and trying out some new traditions as well as the old tried and tested ones, every day leading up to Christmas Day. And I’ll be documenting them here for you to come along with me for the triumphs (fingers crossed!) and fails (there will be some, without doubt).

My festive breakfast!

So, to start with, I wanted to ease into Blogmas by showing you what I had for breakfast this morning- of course my Blogmas was going to start with food- what else would you expect?

I really love the novelty of all the normal foods you buy suddenly being turned into festive shapes, so the fact that my crumpet this morning was shaped like a Christmas tree was a definite highlight of my day.

In other news, I have spent the rest of my day preparing some upcoming Blogmas posts with Michael Bublé blaring through my earphones, we’ve dug out the Christmas decorations (it was a dusty and painful experience trying to rummage through the damp garage), and I had a gin and tonic at 3 o’clock this afternoon, because hey, it doesn’t matter, it’s Christmas!

See you tomorrow,

Anna
