“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! ;-)
