Mistletoe and (sparkling) wine

It's snowing outside today, but I've still been doing the grocery shopping – from the comfort of my sofa. After a lot of 'discussion' the main event is at my sister's this year, but obviously we still need food for the rest of the festive period. If you've never tried online grocery shopping, I can't tell you how brilliant it is to be able to order all your basics and leave the heavy lifting to the delivery guys. They'll even carry it through to the kitchen for you, if you want them to.

And it's also a really easy way to buy wine. In addition to ginger wine we always like a bottle (or several) of something sparkling at Christmas – if you're the same, here's my pick of the best:

Sainsbury's has a fantastic selection, but the Nerello Prosecco (£6.99) is especially delicious. Beringer's Sparkling Rosé (£6.39, available from Ocado is also excellent. Tesco  has Freixenet's Cordon Negro Brut for £6.98 – crisp and clean and perfect for impromptu get-togethers with friends and family. And if only champagne will do, Majestic has an incredible range, including the outstanding Canard-Duchene for £25.49 and delicate and wonderful Laurent-Perrier for £37.49 – plus some fab discounts for multi-buys, and if you shop through KidStart you get 2.5% back for your kids.

    Love on-line shopping. Spend hours researching perfect gifts and having them delivered to house like Santa making a visit in person. Food and drink the same. Only drawback, resisting the temptation to openi and eat before the Big Day!
