This past week and a half I've been cursed with an unfortunate bout of the common cold, so whilst my antibodies have been hard at work fighting this unwelcome virus I've been making the most of my days by doing plenty of low energy-sucking activities around the house, including some quick and easy crafts such as making a colony of bats for my mirror, some batty bunting for the fireplace mantle and some home-made gift tags for Christmas.
I've also been enjoying a spot of baking! Bread pudding was always a staple in our diet when I was a little kid but I hadn't eaten it since I was at least 12 years old! I decided to try my hand at making it last week and it turned out far better than I expected, the comforting smell and taste opened a floodgate of childhood memories! I've already made plans to bake two yummy festive treats next week which will be gobbled up over the holidays!
Sickness calls for plenty of reading (Hell, any day calls for plenty of reading!) and I've just started a new book (Well, I say new but I got it a few months ago and I'm only just starting it now!) I really hope they're planning on a third book in this series as I've found this one and the previous one so hard to put down!
I've also been spending a lot of quality time with my loved one this past week watching films and playing board games including Cluedo and one of his childhood games, Hero Quest, which I've quickly become addicted to! Does anyone else love playing board games during December when you're feeling all warm and festive?
Talking of festive, here's a little peek at one of our Christmas decorations. Those beautiful and graceful creatures seem to be a prevailing factor in our living room this month but I'm not complaining! ♥
What do you enjoy the most about December?
