Christmas 2013

So this is Christmas… We didn’t have plenty of time to give our house the Christmas look as we just got back from short break in London but I managed to squeeze all the Christmas shopping on Monday and visited 3 supermarkets to buy some Christmas ornaments and all the ingredients needed for our  Polish-English celebrations. The traffic was crazy and it took me a while to get to the town but I got some nice lights, candles, tablecloth and napkins in Homemate to make our flat more merry.  Like every year we celebrate Polish Wigilia on Christmas Eve which I prepare and then my partner is in charge of cooking on the 1st Day of Christmas. I spent almost half day cooking but it was worth it.
