Merry Christmas 2013!

So, as Tim Minchin would point out, I don’t have much time for religion… some of the songs are nice, but the lyrics are dodgy…

But!  I do like Christmas.  This year, my Mum and my uncle and my boyfriend’s Mum are all coming round to my flat, and for the first time ever, I’ll be in charge of the Christmas dinner, which I’m informed is a stressful undertaking.  We’re forsaking turkey, partially because it’s a rather dull thing to eat, and a dull thing to cook, and partly because my oven is quite small.  Instead we’ll have something as equally indulgent, and wear silly hats, and swap presents, and watch Dr Who, and that, frankly, is what I figure Crimble should be about – being warm and together at the coldest time of year.

And I hope you all have a Merry Christmas too!


  1. By this point, I figure you’re deep in it, so Happy Christmas!

    I tried to convince my sister to cook goose this year. She demurred, so we’re having scallops, dressed up to be appropriately decadent with lots of cream and pancetta.

  2. Merry Christmas to you. Hope you have a great meal and a happy New Year

  3. MERRY CHRISTMAS! This may be late, since the time difference etc. confuses me every time, and it is already the 25th in Australia, but still, as they say, it is the thought that counts. And a Happy New Year as well.
