Well, the weather may be misery itself at the moment - spare a thought for the poor souls who've had to be evacuated from their flooded homes - but Maison Persolaise is a hive of jolly activity. With the able assistance of two of our nieces, Madame Persolaise and I are in the process of preparing a feast of decadent proportions... a feast which will hopefully form a suitable prelude to a consumerist orgy of gift-unwrapping. Although it's all-systems-go in the kitchen right now, I've allowed myself to nip into my study for a few moments to wish you and yours the very best for Christmas. May you all find a few moments of peace, joy and relaxation, either on your own, or with your loved ones. Enjoy the feasting!
PS Please don't forget to come back on Friday for my list of the best perfumes of 2012!
