For me, Christmas Day is a weird combo of over-excited, hyped-up kids + post-festive admin euphoria high (no more spreadsheet, yay!) + feeling a bit hangdog after a late night of frantic last-minute wrapping and a few drinks.
We all eat and drink too much at this time of year. I know I do.
A few years ago, I made my first mincemeat – here’s what happened when I researched whether it’s healthier than the shop-bought stuff.
A couple of weekends ago, I made my first ever Christmas pudding.
Bet you’ve looked at those images of happy families in Christmas adverts and movies, and wondered why your family’s reality doesn’t quite live up to the media ideal.
