There are noticeably less light-decorations around the streets, and folks are being careful what they are spending their money on. To save money, I will have a do-it-yourself Christmas this year.

I took my old Mum to my favourite haunt in my home town, for a concert by Dutch female group Reïncarnatus.
Recipe for easy-peasy Bischopswijn:
*1 bottle of red plonk (no need to pay a lot for it, as you will be chucking things in)
*2 cinnamon sticks or a good dash of ground up cinnamon
*brown sugar (optional)
Heat the wine (do NOT let it boil!), add the juice of the lemon and the cinnamon sticks and perhaps the sugar if you have a sweet tooth. Drink hot, but not too hot, as it will impair the taste.
Enjoy yourself! We did :-)
