Happy Sunday, lovelies. Hope you’re all well. I am bamboozled by how warm it is, and blaming the unseasonal weather on my lack of organisation in the way of Christmas prep. If anyone else is in the same boat, and having that ‘oh my word it’s actually Christmas THIS WEEK and I’ve got people coming and there’s so much to do andandand aaargh’ realisation, then fear not! Help is at hand for you today to make festive entertaining a breeze. Please give a very warm welcome to the first of our fabulous guest posters – the lovely Helen from Pudding Bridge.
