And everyone is singing, I hear those sleigh bells ringing

Another week, another lyric from Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You. I’m glad it’s finally ok to admit that this is one of my favourite Christmas songs; I remember being mercilessly mocked for liking this song when it came out in 1994!

I met my partner's family last weekend. I did a Christmassy bouquet for his mum, and a little jam jar posy for him, and managed to carry both of them intact up on the train. The hyacinths and eucalyptus smell gorgeous, as do the milder-scented Grand Prix roses; although I hope the fragrance wasn’t too intoxicating for other passengers on the train. I decorated the jam jar with ribbon and little bells – and yes, they do jingle!
