Han’s Blogmas- Day Fourteen (Favourite Childhood Christmas Memory)

My favourite memory is from when I was a teen and is actually of Christmas Eve. My brother took me to see Small Soldiers. It was at the height of my love for Spinal Tap and couldn’t wait to identify the characters they voiced. Other than it being a good film, I remember little else.…

Han’s Blogmas – Day Eleven (Christmas food,whats on the menu)

So, I’m not really able to be creative with my Christmas dinner so, assuming I find Domnhall Gleeson under the tree this year (or a beautiful ginger substitute)… I’d like to have our three course Christmas dinner prepared for next year. Starter Chicken Liver Pate; made at home, with love, the night before. Main Roast…

Han’s Blogmas- Day Nine (Winter Items You Can’t Live Without)

  Essentially, everything above is my must haves for the winter. A good book, comfy socks and a good cuppa (If it could magically refill AND always be the perfect temperature, that would be amazing). I find having warm fairy lights good for getting me in the comfy mood too.

Blogmas- Day Four (Favourite Music)

1. Christmastime (Don’t let the Bells End)- The Darkness It’s such a fun song. It’s taken a few years, but (much like another song of theirs) the Yuletide tongue-in-cheek song has grown on me. 2. Little Drummer Boy – Bing Crosby and David Bowie Anyone who knows me, knows my love of Bowie. That voice…

Blogmas Day Three (Favourite Christmas Movie)

My favourite Christmas movie is Scrooged. Bill Murray’s riff on A Christmas Carol is just spectacular. It has a dark humour, a dated plot and a massive heart. From the opening adverts to Murray’s breaking of the forth wall, its a faultless look at the flawed icon of Christmas.

Han’s Blogmas- Day Two (What Christmas Means to You)

Christmas means many things to me. It’s always been more about the build up and preparation rather than the day itself. There are two things Christmas does mean to me though: Family I couldn’t imagine being anywhere other than home this Christmas. I’ve always spent Christmas day with my family. I don’t think I’ve been…
