I am normally a bit of a slattern and at Christmas time, will do anything to get out of the kitchen. All those recipe books in the libraries have inspired me to cook Christmas dinner this year. I have even baked a cake. In the end I went for Nigella’s chocolate Christmas cake and am feeling rather smug as it smells and looks stunning. The recipe is in her recipe book Feast. A georgeous book. For the Christmas dinner itself I have decided to try a bit of Jamie Oliver and a few recipes from the Hairy Bikers. Just hope that I can pull it off. Knowing me I will forget to defrost the turkey and we will end up having beans on toast.

Was listening to Michael McIntyre being interviewed by Chris Evans this morning. He was plugging his book Life and Laughing. It isn’t surprising that he is sooo funny when as a youngster Kenny Everett was a family friend and frequent visitor to his house. Life and Laughing is is definitely on my Christmas list and I will be dropping big hints to my husband to buy it for me. Second thoughts I will borrow it from the library and drop big hints to my husband that I would like a kindle reader instead!
For the book groups around the borough…
