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!)
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!
Beatitude Oils are a familiar sight on shoots, the beautiful bottles complement the grandest and minutest bathrooms, adding a touch of luxury easily achievable with the click of a mouse!
Laura Thomas Linens are the best: organic, Fair trade, beautifully designed and will transform any bedroom into a haven…you will sleep better I promise you!
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!
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.
