1. I made a smoothie for the first time ever in my life! Strawberries, raspberries, honey, greek yoghurt & porridge oats. I loved the taste but it wasn’t smooth enough for me so it made me gag after a cup full! Possibly too much information shared there?! It wasn’t wasted though. I’ve frozen the rest for an after dinner snack.
This year our Christmas will be like no other. For the first time in 26 years, I won’t be having Christmas in the UK. Our parents and my brother are coming to visit us for 3 weeks and we are having Christmas in our little apartment. Yes, that is 7 of us in our 1 bed apartment for Christmas dinner. We only have 2 bar stools but have managed to borrow a table to seat 6, so one of us will have to perch on a corner!
Over the years we have collected decorations that are special to us. However, we didn’t bring anything Christmassy over to the US with us. We managed to get a bargain of a Christmas tree from Target; a pre-lit 6ft tree for $15. We also bought a packet of plain baubles as I am a little against glitter (it just gets everywhere!) and some candy canes. When we first arrived in the US, we had a trip to New Orleans and we bought 2 metal skull decorations from a quaint little store. These were added to our little for their first Christmas.
