Christmas Dining and Preparations

Yesterday was my first Christmas lunch of the festive season! (yes I know it's not yet December but seeing Father Christmas on Saturday kick started the festivities!)

Some friends and I arranged to visit a local Essex restaurant, Clocktower which was great fun getting together over a few bottles of pinor noir! We ordered from their new Christmas menu and the food was perfect!

I also changed my sofa covers to festive red (hmmmm is there an over use of the word "festive" in this post!) finally adding my Cinnamon cushions I purchased last year (and still available from H&M here)

This week is set to start with my first Christmas party of the season tonight and a friend joins me for dinner Wednesday and then Friday is spent in town at our Christmas market! 

It's all go now!!
