There are only a few short sleeps until the big event rolls around, which I am super pumped about. Zoe and Lachlainn will be joining us here at home for Christmas, and since my mother-in-law no longer feels compelled to provide the obligatory roast of the day, we are going to indulge in some excellent pork belly and champagne right here for lunch on our own, which will be spectacular I'm sure. Why am I so sure? Because I am the one cooking it that's why, and I do a pretty mean pork belly roast.
Over the next few days I am planning to clean, cook, bake, wrap gifts and just chill out around the house. I will more than likely also be partaking in a few tipples along the way, adventuring in to town to check out the Christmas lights and overindulging in one of the only biscuits that I can safely eat due to it's rice flour content, the humble Christmas shortbread.
Bring it on! I am so excited, so many good things to look forward to. Let's make this year the best one ever!

Christmas themed comedies are rarely any good, it's a tremendously hard genre to get right; but here is an exception to the theory that they all have to be un-watchable crapola. Now don't get me wrong here, this is by no means great comedy viewing, but I would be lying if I said that I didn't get a few good belly laughs out of it.
Three long term friends head out for their annual tradition of getting wasted on Christmas Eve. This year they have snagged tickets to the most coveted of all Christmas parties- The Nutcracka Ball, an event that they have longed to attend for many years.
Seth Rogan plays his usual wasted mess of a character, but it is the truly talented heavy weights like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon and James Franco that keep this rather unstable story line afloat.
A perfect movie choice for a quiet and drunken Christmas Eve gathering.
FINAL SAY: We both know Miley was flawless.
