Evie's plan for Christmas Day

Heinz Baked Beans

Part of Pete's Secret Santa present, surprisingly veggie friendly..

Home from Bcn

I'm back from a quick jaunt to Barcelona with Jess to see mam and do some Christmas Shopping. I've also brought home some family heirlooms... (we picked up cheerful Santa and his cheerleading angels from the Christmas Market in Dusseldorf years ago)
