We have just woken up, the carols are blasting out of the radio, the kettle is boiled and the deliciously light Darjeeling is brewing. After a yummy breakfast we’ll sit down and open the pressies while munching on a cheeky mince-pie or two and sipping a glass of mulled wine. Lets hope we all get some cracking goodies and the only odd present under the tree is the usual from auntie. It makes us giggle every year!
I don’t know about you, but our Christmas day then kicks into gear with some fresh air. A walk cross Ashton Court. It looks amazing at the moment with the snow and ice, hopefully the deer will be out in force too. Then back to Clifton Village for a pint in our local. There is something quite unique about catching up with neighbours and friends on Christmas day over a beer. Then home for the big event!! This year we are having roast beef with all the trimmings – no turkey in this household.
But after a few glasses of fizz and a little bit of food, it will have to be Sobacha. Tip of the day, take a little time out from the mass of food and alcohol to enjoy something else, something more refreshing. Sobacha is a sweet and nutty buckwheat tea that is utterly refreshing. Full of anti-oxidants, Sobacha is the perfect complement to the overindulgence of Christmas Day. Feel on top form all day.
Have a fabulous day, I know we will.
Merry Christmas from the Lahloo team
