Pringle Bells


Unkategorised

Sour cream and onion Pringles get a really bad rap, I think to myself, following my third ‘Pringles sitting’ of the day, as I polish off a tube, shaking the sorry pile of crumbs at the bottom into the palm of my hand. You know what that final Pringles sitting of the day is like? As […]

Jingle Bell Lock(down)


Unkategorised

It’s November 30th and I’m sat, cross-legged on the sofa, admiring my Santa-red Christmas-pudding print pyjama bottoms, happily acknowledging the smudgy glow of yellowy fairy lights in my peripheral vision.

12 Christmas Memories


Unkategorised

Dear December Twelfth, I have always adored your month. When you take centre stage a warmth can be felt at all times. Despite the cars that can’t see in the early hours of the morning. Despite the magic we breathe out as we wander outside for the first time each day. Despite the “brrr” that […]

DIY Christmas Memory Line

Dear December Eleventh, In a day’s time most of us will be celebrating your main event in the form of Christmas trees, festive front of house displays and a wreath on the door. Our tree, traditionally, goes up on the twelfth- or as close as to the twelfth as possible. As I’m sure you’ve already […]

How to Gift a Disposable Camera


Unkategorised

Dear December Eighth, I visited New York during your older sibling’s month; this November gone. But that’s not really what I want to write to you about today. Before Tarryn and I left for our Big Apple adventure, I gifted her with a disposable camera for her birthday. Attached was a mini card with twenty-two […]
