After my mother’s epic Christmas treat last week, next morning it was Christmas treat day part two: off to The Wells Tavern in the heart of Hampstead Village with my father for our pre-Christmas lunch. (Divorced parents means lots of Christmas plans…)

I’m wearing my gorgeous new navy blue Whistles sweater dress, Boden shoes (this season’s version is here and a flat version here), grey Falke tights, and an Acne grey scarf (similar here), and Lettice is in her Lands’ End snowflake jacket and new Mulberry lead. Maisie is in this season’s much sought after design classic – the Aldi Christmas pudding sweater!

We ate ALL the food, and there was even a bowl of Lily’s Kitchen on the menu for hungry dogs.

This was quite easily the best Pavlova I have ever eaten outside of my own home (yup, there’s a recipe for one in Friends, Food Family!). But this mango and passion fruit version was epic.

Then, whilst Maisie and Holly waited patiently, my father fixed his Christmas present to me: a boot rack for my car. (It’s a roadster, so it has a very small boot and a rack can’t be attached to the soft top; a boot rack means I can get a large suitcase on the back, which will make a distinct improvement to road trips.)

Totally agree about homemade pavlova and I’d never usually order it in a restaurant. But that looks gorgeous – all squidgy and marshmallowy!

I didn’t have a traditional family Christmas this year for various reasons (some good, some bad!) but I’ve enjoyed having lovely treats with my favourite people so much more. I haven’t missed the soggy brussel sprouts, angry charades or endless cheap chocolates one bit!
