As a budding published Author with a full-time job and a passion for cooking and wine, Christmas is the hardest time to blog!
So I am giving you all a photographic excuse as to why I can’t.
I have a pan on the stove with two Cornish hens simmering away ready to make soup. Next to it is a pan of beans, bubbling happily before being added to the hens. I have fresh veggies to prepare.
I have scones and mince pies to bake. Why do I do all of this instead of buying them? Because for the week before Christmas and the week after, I feel very close to my mother. Her birthday was on December 26th (Boxing Day).
She cooked incredible and traditional English fare. I miss the smell of Christmas in my mother’s house as she passed away some years ago. I am keeping up her tradition.
If you have time, check out my short ghost stories below. They are a tribute to my mum and dad, who are no longer with me. Have a Merry Christmas.
