'It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas'

Do you know something that’s just dawned on me, there hasn’t been an interiors post in a while. So here to make up for it, is a plethora of Christmas interior inspiration from around the web. Plus a few snaps from my own home.

I have to say I fully intended this to be breakfast in bed…

Baked Risotto | Family Friendly Food

Malcolm Gladwell (world renowned Canadian author, journalist and speaker), says in his best selling book ‘Outliers’, it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in a particular field. According to him natural talent doesn’t really play a significant part… So, in theory, you can become a master of anything if you put in the time, effort, and most importantly practice, practice, practice!

I have to say, I love his theory. It’s nice to believe that anything is possible. If you want to become the best pastry chef in the Dublin, a professional footballer, or even beat Murray at a game of Tennis - as the saying goes - ‘if you can imagine it, you can achieve it’, just don’t forget to put in the 10,000 hours!

In that case then, my baked risotto must just about be my masterpiece! I’ve made it so often I’ve definitely clocked up a lot of hours of practice. (I must also be a master at nappy changing – but don’t worry I won’t write a post about that!)
