Christmas is next weekend, can you feel it? The surge of shopping trolleys down the aisles, the escalators jam packed with cranky big spenders, the baby change room overflowing with a line up of strollers and kids with sticky fingers from “Just be quiet for one minute” lollypops. Sure there is the magic of Santa, all the pretty lights and the Kmart Wishing Tree but wouldn’t the festive season be better spent at home, curled up on the couch marking out recipes from the latest Real Living Magazine… oh sorry, is that just me?
Real Living is my favourite because it focuses on home life, it’s inspiring and shows you how to make the most of what you’ve got. As a renter it’s full of handy tips to make bold designer statements without putting holes in the walls. I love seeing sneak peeks into Australian homes of all different styles, every month I become a total voyeur. The recipes are mostly quick, simple and affordable whilst looking like they came from a restaurant. Since Aidan has already got me my subscription to Christmas, maybe Santa could surprise me with Good Health Magazine? I’ll need it after several serves of the Sparkling Berry Trifle (pg 149), yum!
