“Holidays are coming, holidays are coming.”
Everyone knows that as soon as the Coke advert hits your tv screen (usually mid-November!), that Christmas can’t be too far away, right. IT’S. THE. LAW!
And this year, there’s a new festive treat for us: The John Lewis snowmen!
This Christmas is going to be a little different for me.
Whilst you lot are skidding around the high street desperately blagging last minute pressies for an unexpected Uncle and lobbing your still-very-much-frozen turkeys into a bathful of warm water, I will be chilling in the Lakes with my other half, sipping on Mulled wine and warming my feet next to a coal fire.
We will smile with amusement at the thought of the pre-Christmas chaos unfolding back home, whilst the laid-back bartender brings us over another beer and sigh with contentment as we walk through the sparkling, frost-kissed lanes of Ambleside, back to our cottage and our peaceful, quiet Christmas.
Anyway, I’m not one to gloat…
No Christmas (no matter what it is going to entail) is complete without a good crime thriller or scary story full of festive cheer to get you in the spirit.
So here’s ours: The Night before Christmas is available now on Amazon!
And seeing as it’s nearly Christmas and we’re feeling generous, you can get it now for only 99c/99p!
Merry Christmas and remember:
PS. Just a quick update: thanks to all you awesome bookworms, TNBC is number one!
