Can you believe it’s only two sleeps until Christmas? And for those of you panicking at home because you haven’t finished Christmas shopping, you still need to get food, heck you still need to decide what to even make for Christmas feasting – spare a thought for me. Scandinavians celebrate on Christmas eve, so for me the big shebang is tomorrow. Tomorrow! PANIC!
Well, luckily, I’m on pavlova duty.
I don’t know if I should take the credit because I’m just kick ass at making pavlova (right?), or maybe it’s just an awesomely easy recipe (I’d like to think the former hah) but I get pavlova duty most years and as I type, the pavlova for tomorrow is baking in the oven and I just know it’ll be perfect. Nice thick base, crispy shell, spongey innards… love. Oh, the photo above is from last year, if anyone’s confused.
So, stress aside, are you guys ready for Christmas? I am so ready. My kids are getting a million presents from us and if Christmas doesn’t just bring its butt over here soon, the present count will go through the roof. Privileged children of this generation, as if they don’t already have enough toys and clothes and just shit, but somehow every other thing I see in the shops I’m like “oh Sam would love that!” and although Sofi isn’t really at an age to “love” stuff yet (except that sorceress Peppa Pig who’s wiggled her way into Sofi’s sphere of consciousness and Oddbods – have you seen Oddbods? Even I love them!) she still gets a present for every one Sam gets. So that’s a heap of fancily wrapped crap under our tree.
So bring it on I say. Let’s eat and be merry!
