This cocktail is called Poinsettia, by the way. Nigella’s recipe. Give it a go, it’s delicious!
2. The weather! All the snow… I’m in love.
3. Happy family meetings. We didn’t manage to see some of our family over Christmas so we met up on Friday and it was great.
4. More work! A former student of mine sought me out earlier this week to ask for individual lessons. I’m really happy about that! This person used to attend one of the group courses I taught many years ago. They couldn’t continue due to change of job but the situation has now changed yet again and they’re back! It always makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside when somebody comes back for more. 🙂 It means a really busy winter for me and I’m very happy about that, too.
5. This traditional Christmas sweet plait bread. It’s usually eaten for breakfast at Christmas. We of course baked it for Christmas but I still had cravings… so I gave in and made another one yesterday. It goes really well with the lit Christmas tree and a Lord of the Rings marathon (best January tradition ever.) 🙂
