Yes, I really did mean Christmas 2013! This year we are taking part in Frugaldom's sealed pot challenge. The idea is you save your small change found pennys, and occasional few pounds throughout the year in a sealed pot. On December 3rd we all open them together and splurge :)
We are planning to use ours for Christmas family outing/ trip to see Santa.
I've also experimented with microwave meringues and can thoroughly recommend the recipe. Life is far to short to make them in the oven!!!
