Mistletoe and (sparkling) wine

It’s bad weather outside today, but I’ve still have been doing the grocery shopping – from the comfort of my sofa.

After a lot of ‘discussion’ the main mistletoe and wine event is at my sister’s this year, but obviously we still need food for the rest of the festive period.

Online Grocery Shopping

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.

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.

My pick of the best

Sainsbury’s has a fantastic selection with £0.50 KidStart savings, but the Crémant De Loire  is especially delicious. Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvée Rosé NV (£13.99, available from Waitrose Cellar is also excellent with 6.5% KidStart savings. Tesco has Freixenet’s Cordon Negro Brut for £10.00 – crisp and clean. Perfect for impromptu get-togethers with friends and family also offers up to 3% KidStart Savings. If only champagne will do, Majestic Wine has an incredible range. Including the outstanding Canard-Duchene Brut NV for £17.99 and delicate and wonderful Laurent-Perrier Brut NV for £25.99 – plus some fab discounts for multi-buys, and if you shop through KidStart you get up to 4% back for your kids. Cheers!
