Clare's "All I want for Christmas is..."

Useful things
Absinthe from
Hair bobbles from Accessorize -- I like little clips and hairpins best
A mesh sponge bag for when I go away
Almost anything from
Blended incense from (I like the airy ones best)
Hat, scarf and gloves set
A brown or black silky petticoat -- knee length would be most useful

House Things
A tray that you can put photos in like Fenella has
A fleecy underblanket for the bed I don't have yet
A bed
A decent Thermos cup that doesn't leak
A new apron -- washable and with a pocket
Good candles
A couple more string bags
A case of wine -- English if poss
Hot chocolate (I like Green and Blacks)

Writing Things
Lunch sponsorship: £3 pays for a sandwich so I don't have to make my own lunch, which means I can write in the morning.
A ready meal pack from Cook
Books on my Amazon wishlist
Subscriptions to the National Geographic, London Magazine, London Review of Books, Times Literary Supplement, Mslexia, Interzone


  1. A good excuse for me to put a picture of the fabulous Dita on the blog.

    Very sensible list Clare, I hope you copy and send to all your loved ones (and father christmas of course).

    By the way, Clare writes the lovely

  2. Mmm, would you be surprised if I said I wasn't a fan of Dita? There's something about her. Maybe because she's beautiful and wealthy....jealous, much?
