      It was delicious! I might have to add more cherry juice next time to get a more enhanced flavour, though :)

    Doctor Who! Your Secret Santa was a great gift-giver, then. And I don’t have any presents yet from anyone, but I know I have some gift exchanges with friends this weekend so we’ll see what happens then. I might need to go eat some good food now after seeing that yummy sausage…

    I have watched The Hobbit too and made a review post about it on my blog. I know what you feel. That sausage seems lovely. :0

    Christmas markets sounds like fun and the recipe for the cherry ice cream sounds great. My sister and I just bought a couple of kilos fresh cherries from a farmer’s market and we’re not entirely sure what to do with them.

      They are so much fun! Except being jostled in a busy crowd can be a bit annoying but the food makes up for it :) Oooh, you could make smoothies as well – I think they have recipes on that site as well.

        Yum, cherry smoothies would be so good! It’s a tradition in our family to have mango lassies on xmas morning while we have presents, I wonder if I could get them to try cherry instead.

    The Christmas party sounded like a lot of fun! I also got to see The Hobbit and I really liked it as well! The barrel scene was my favorite scene and Benedict Cumberbatch did a great job with Smaug. And it’s great that you got a Doctor Who gift! It’s always nice when your Secret Santa knows you really well, haha.

    Happy holidays!

      The barrel scene was so cool! Legolas got them moves :) I’m so glad I got my Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman fix before Sherlock comes back, it’s been too long! Happy Holidays to you, too! x

            You should totally check the band out! And for WordPress, there’s this plugin you can use also: http://wordpress.org/plugins/admin-color-schemes and it installs more color scheme options than what WordPress offers you.

            The Hobbit is really good, I recommend it! I would say it’s more like a ~children’s book compared to the Lord of the Ring books. OH and have you heard about the latest Tolkien book that came out? I haven’t read it yet but I was like, wow a new Tolkien book??

            And thank you! For both the encouragement and the comment about the theme haha :D

            Thank you for the plugin recommendation! Can’t wait to try it out :) I haven’t read any Tolkien books (shame on me) and did try to read LOTR when I was in primary school but it just didn’t work out. I was a Harry Potter gal, back then. Haha.

            You’re welcome~! You should try reading Tolkien! He does read as a little “old” if that makes any sense… but his books are good! And no worries. I was a Harry Potter gal as well (also in elementary school haha). I only got into reading Tolkien when I entered college. I definitely don’t think I would have enjoyed them, if I had read them around the same time I started my first Harry Potter book, haha.

    For all my years in London, I haven’t actually been to the Christmas market. I think it’s because I’m just so busy with everything and don’t have time to go there. I also prefer to go in the summer. I hate crowds! I ‘ve only been to the little market near the Natural History Museum and the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park (which has sort of a market…nice food).

    A few people have told me that the Hobbit 2 was much better than the first one. Again, waiting for the bloody crowds to die down before watching it!

      I was going to go to the Winter Wonderland this year but I just didn’t have time, hence the South Bank one. First time going there, and it was mucho fun. You should visit one year :)

      Hobbit 2 is definitely better than 1. 1 made me fall asleep, lol.

    Sounds like your holidays have been a lot of fun already! A Christmas party, receiving some presents and giving them too (those Despicable Me pencils are SOOO cute!), good times, huh? :)

    Before I emigrated to Oregon, I used to visit a bunch of Christmas markets in The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium before Christmas, and the South Bank one sounds like a lot of fun so I’m definitely going to have to remember that when I go to Europe during the holiday season! Book markets always make me happy too. New books, used books, I don’t care! As long as I can buy (and get ;-) ) books.

    Our Christmas fun is about to commence tomorrow, really. I don’t have all of my presents for my husband in yet, but we’ve got everything for my in-laws and I’m praying to whomever will listen up there that my final pressie will be in tomorrow. That’d be excellent!

    I want to go see The Desolation of Smaug SO BADLY. If all goes well, we’ll be able to go sometime by the end of this week. We would’ve gone last week, but the theaters were all sold out (hardly surprising since it’s only been in theaters for such a short time) and so we went to see Catching Fire instead. Have you seen that too? :)

      You should definitely visit the South Bank one if you come to London for Christmas :) It was my first time going and it was much fun. They also have Christmas markets up in Birmingham, as well, and a lot more around London.

      I hope you final present came in time! And did you manage to watch the Hobbit yet? Catching Fire was SO good! Definitely a step up from the first movie, and keep quite close to the book, too, which I’m glad of :)

    It seems as if you have been having both a fun and happy holiday season so far. :) The gifts that you’ve received are both cute and thoughtful. I’ve never participated in a Secret Santa exchange before…but I’m glad to hear that your part went well.

    Sounds like you had a great holiday~ OH heck yes~! My secret santa got me the 10th doctor sonic screwdriver which I loved.

    I got a lot of gifts and I had an enjoyable time at Christmas despite being sick!
