HOLIDAY HOSTESS TIPS: So I’m the most organised I’ve ever been this year (applause please!) so I thought I’d jot down a few thoughts as they occur to me that have helped me along the way which you might also find useful…
If you’re having trouble getting into the Christmas spirit, watching this clip might help.
It’s a series of Christmas pranks between Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, and their friends and neighbours Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney, going back about 3 years and getting more impressive each year.
And I’ve decided I really ought to be friends with them too. Mr Luscious would love them and this sort of thing. Perhaps we’ll move to California and be besties??
Some of you may know that Mr Luscious is very, very handy – he can fix or build anything, from small appliances and general domestic repairs to complete houses and cars. It’s really pretty wonderful.
But unfortunately, he has a habit of not being organised when it comes to his tools. And this means that instead of going through the existing collection of paraphernalia, he drives 20 minutes away to the hardware store to buy more items when he’s working on a project. I feel this is both a waste of time and money, and it definitely creates a mess.
I’m trying to get some work done on my novel (not going very well, alas, as I’ve decided it’s all awful!) and organise everything ahead of time for Christmas, so I’m a bit distracted at the moment. You can see some of the things I’m up to on Instagram and Twitter.
So if you’re looking for something to inspire you, please consider the following:
Luscious Lifers, we’re visiting beautiful Hobart in Tasmania, again.
We’re here to celebrate the birthday of a friend, so started with a luscious dinner at SMOLT at Salamanca Place.
It’s rather grey and dull today, but perfect for finding a fabulous cafe to work on my novel. Mr Luscious will be acting as tour guide for the birthday girl, possibly off to the art galleries and a meander through the historic streets of Hobart and the surrounding area.
Revisit our past posts and galleries from our 2013 visit to get an idea of how luscious it is here – think glorious scenery, a relaxed country town atmosphere, and sublime fresh produce:
