The English Home


The appearance of The English Home on the newsagent's shelf is a certain sign that Christmas is approaching.  The annual ritual of buying the December issue signals that it is time for me to begin my Christmas preparations.


Whilst I can aspire to the perfect English country cottage, beautifully decorated for the Christmas season, the reality is a little different.  I think that this year will be a pared-down version of Christmas for various reasons, the least of which is lack of space. 

Anyway, I can still dream of curling up in front of a fire in that cottage in the countryside and enjoy a welcoming cup of tea and a seasonal nibble as I daydream...
