I love Christmas puddings. There is something about the immensely dark pudding that contrasts beautifully with the white icing and green holly top. So while shopping at Selfridges, London in late November this year, I couldn't resist the set of tea pot and mug as well as a salt and pepper shaker set. Totally disregarding the possibility that I may not have space in my luggage, I told the sales girl to leave out the bulky box packaging and have them bubble wrapped instead. Then I took it back to the hotel and had them inserted in any conceivable space I could find in my already full luggage. When there's a will, there's a way !
And in the days leading up to Christmas, there they were in the corner of my living room, looking pretty sweet. In this case, indulging in some eye candy is the better calorie free alternative.
