Christmas is coming…

I know it’s a bit early, but we are getting organised. I am hosting this year, and sad, I realise, but I am already planning my menu and table decorations… My nephew has an American girlfriend and she will be joining us this year, as guest of honour, of course (no pressure Hugo!)

xmas table decorations

I am planning lots of twigs and candles, berries…you know the look…It is still November today, but the build up has started because I go to lots of Christmas Fairs at this time of year. I love it, as they are a brilliant sources of inspiration for ideas, features and Christmas stories .

This year has been particularly fun because I have been swept along by my fellow Juggle club members who have all been exhibiting… Juggle club, in case you are wondering, is a group of women in our village who have banded together because we run businesses that are dependent on our websites; we have all had a day of free ‘Search Engine Optimisation’ from East Lothian Council. We then continue to meet on a monthly basis to support each other…

If you are looking for a Christmas present either for someone else, or maybe even yourself, to ensure that you get exactly what you want, you could do a lot worse than try some of the brilliant products from my Juggle club!

Mel’s Spice Pots I guarantee are a lunch or dinner stunner, the instructions are so easy to follow, any guest will think you have ordered a curry from a restaurant, my own children love a carry out, but I don’t need to bother now, I just use Mel’s Spices!

Lettings of Distiction

Last but not least, anyone wanting to just get away from it all needs to have a look at Lettings of Distinction, a family run luxury lettings business that will look after your every need should you want a golfing holiday or just a relaxing break on our beautiful stretch of coastline.
