Planning for Christmas Dinner 2013

It’s December again, and that can only mean Christmas is coming!

The last couple of months have mostly been downright sh*tty. I’ve been stressed out of my mind, lost faith in my ability to communicate, lost trust in the people around me, and mostly found it easier to stay in my shell even though it can feel lonely. Plus it’s also been a real downer to see one of my idols, Nigella Lawson, go through a failed marriage and an embarrassing, and very public court case.

But no matter. Christmas is almost here and decorating my house from floor to ceiling never fails to put me in a festive mood. Then there’s planning for the big dinner on Dec 25. And of course, all that baking! I’m looking forward to having my kitchen reek of citrus and spices.
