How is it going with the Christmas preparation? Honestly, I was getting a bit desperate about my Christmas mood, which I couldn't seem to find (don't let the ribbons fool you, I’m not there yet!). Yesterday there was a breakthrough; I eyed a hope. We went for a few simple courses for dinner and as I sat there enjoying marinated salmon with dill and mustard sauce on a toast (a popular starter at Christmas in my parents' home), fresh clementines and pistachios, with Icelandic Christmas music in the background, I'm quite sure I felt something - a hint of Christmas spirit. Tonight it's of course Friday pizza time but I think I will repeat yesterday's ritual tomorrow to see if it works again. Who knows, I may even start using the ribbons.
Have a wonderful weekend!
