It's nearly Christmas - my favourite hand painted, Italian coffee mug is in full use.
The house is full of fresh juicy clementines.
A lovely gift of fresh hyacinths, scent the room and add a splash of colour.
Meringues and other festive treats are being baked and put away for just a few more days.
Today we've made the most of clear blue skies - the washing is out and Sam has been encouraged out on a bike ride to get some fresh air!
And then evening time is spent cosied up on the sofa enjoying the tree and festive sprinkle of lights and colour. I love this time of the year and come Christmas Eve, once with all the family, Christmas will well and truly be here.
