I should, however, be really into the Christmas spirit, given that I'm currently writing a Christmas book, hopefully due for publication next December. This one's set in London. So here I am sitting in my very hot and sweltering office trying to conjure up scenes of snow and frost and cold. It's a bit of a mind leap. I have to keep watching videos of Bridget Jones (which I tried to embed here, but for some reason couldn't, if anyone knows how- please help!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OB63KLsmEGk- you know that scene- the last kiss in the snow…. *sigh*… so that I can get into the right headspace. But, hey any excuse to watch Colin Firth and I'm first in the queue.
I'm trying to decide which I prefer, the Christmas of the frozen north with enforced staying in, lots of cold and wrapping up warm. Or the new Christmas I'm getting used to - hot and sunny.
What is your idea of a perfect Christmas?
Any suggestions about what I should cook on the big day?
(I don't have a book out this December, so thought I'd share my last year's cover…)
