  3. Temperatures are dropping across the country. The question on everyone’s lips: Will It Be A White Christmas? We know we should be grown ups about it, especially with the energy prices, but, if it’s going to be cold anyway, wouldn’t a snow-sprinkled Christmas Day be just magical?!
  4. Every year it seems M&S manage to find a sell-out Christmas treat that everyone has on their Christmas list. Apparently this year it’s the Starry Night Shortbread Selection Tin which we have to say is quite the steal for £9. Have you managed to secure one of these coveted gifts?! What’s your favourite of the supermarket 2022 festive goodies?
