An introduction to Delicious Nessy!

Another introduction! Whoopeee i hear you shout in delight! Well this is a christmas introduction from the lovely, entertaining and truly inspiring Delicious Nessy herself! The cupcake connoisseur! Visit her wonderful site over at

Ps – If you are not in to christmas, i urge you to read this post. By the end of it, you may find yourself welling up with the joy of it all! I certainly did! Enjoy!


I can hardly believe that we are already a week into December, only 19 days till Christmas. I LOVE Christmas. In fact, I don’t just love Christmas, I love the whole month of December: the twinkling lights in town centres; the busy, busy shops full of people – not buying for themselves – but for others, taking the time to think about what a loved one would really appreciate as a present; the festive songs (although I’m sure if you work in a shop you will disagree with this one); Father Christmas being so talented that he can appear in many different shops and centres across the globe, so that children can let him know their hearts desire this festive season.

I also love December as it’s my birthday (on the 15th  if you’re interested) and the month in which traditions continue and for us, hopefully, this year we will start new ones. When I was living at home, we always got the tree on the weekend of or before my birthday. It was always there by the 15th in the “front room” bay window for all to see. Adorned with a mix match of decorations we made at primary school and various random ornaments that we had collected over the years. There are clowns; little wire prams; hobby horses; bears and a bashed dove that I made when I was about 6, completely falling apart but until it actually does, it will always have a place on my parents’ tree. There is no fancy colour matching for the Hogg family, just a warm, inviting and fun tree (although we draw the line at tinsel!)

The tradition of random fun ornaments is now also in my house and over the last couple of years I have bought an array of lovely decorations. This year, we have a Baby’s first Christmas bauble for Sam. I’ve also got him a tartan bear for his Scottish roots and a wooden tree decoration with his name on it. Each year, he will get another decoration and when he is older with a house of his own, they will be his to take for his tree, with his family.

As we will spend Christmas Day in Scotland with my family, we got our tree on December 2nd. I have covered it with decorations. I have vintage style paper chains put up in the living room too and an advent calendar that hangs along our shelves with a little straw bag for each day. Although Sam has no idea about Christmas, he already loves looking at the twinkling lights on the tree. 

Christmas will take on a new meaning for us this year as we have our beautiful boy and with that there is a renewed magic and sense of wonder.

I hope that you all have a wonderful festive season full of love, laughs and happiness.
