Can you believe that Christmas is just one week away? I can’t. Can you believe that this time next week we’ll be unwrapping presents and filling the house with delicious Christmas food smells? I can’t. Can you believe that we still don’t have plans for Christmas day? No, I can’t either. December has completely flown by this year, leaving me – someone who normally starts planning Christmas in September – completely and utterly unprepared. We spent a week in the UK this month, which took over all my organisation time, leaving hardly any for Christmas Day.
Christmases can be a bit difficult here – my dad lives about a 30 minute drive away from us, but My Official Treat Taster’s family lives about 4-5 hours away. By plane. Which is why we do ‘alternate’ Christmases. They come over and visit one year when I am on edge for every second of every day until they’re gone, then the next year we have a snuggly bunny Christmas with just the two of us. This year it’s just us two. High five! But we have no plans at all. HELP!
I got a bit overwhelmed at the idea of being so unorganized last weekend and instead of grabbing the corkscrew, I face-planted this tray of brownies. Best. Solution. Ever. No one can be overwhelmed, angry or upset when you have a face full of these chocolate peppermint brownies.
Here are the link parties I link up to.
