Merry Christmas Eve folks! Can you believe its Christmas tomorrow, I am so excited. Mostly for the food I’m not going to lie, we’ve got an amazing looking nut roast for the main part of our dinner and I’m drooling just thinking about it!
Christmas will be a little different for us all this year whether it be smaller family celebrations than we’re used to or even Christmas on our own but however you’re spending it I hope you take the day to relax, get a little merry and just do something you love whether thats eating,drinking, reading or having a marathon few hours on the playstation. Just spend the day doing something for you, I think we all deserve it after this year! It’s just me and my mum for Christmas this year with my other half popping in for a bit of dinner later once he’s woken up and before he goes to work. He’s been landed with nightshifts over the whole of Christmas the poor chap! So we’ve got lots of food and drinks planned and more than likely an afternoon nap on the couch before cheese and crackers and a film in the evening. I can’t wait!
So with all that in mind, I thought it might be nice to give everyone something fun to do this Christmas Eve to give us a little bit of cheer as we wait for whatever the big day has in store for us. Please scroll down to find the Big Bookish Christmas (Eve) Quiz of 2020

I’ve really had fun participating in my first blogmas (minus 2 posts in the middle when I got ill, oopsie) and although it’s been really hectic trying to fit in a post every day I think it’s been worth it. Note to self for next year, forward planning is key!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas (or very merry Friday if you don’t celebrate) and I’ll see you in the next one, after a few well deserved days off!
