I read and subscribe to a vast number of blogs. While I enjoy all of them all for one reason or another, here is my list of my absolute favourites for 2011, you know the ones that you really look forward to reading (and you look at first).
Whether you are having Christmas outside or inside, whether it is hot or cold, you are at home or away, it’s formal or relaxed, you are celebrating surrounded by people or in solitude and if you believe or even if you do not, I wish you peace and happiness this festive season.

Babyonstoren in South Africa’s Cape Winelands region is a country getaway like no other: part working farm and part luxury hotel.
It is one of the oldest surviving farms in the area and the manor house dates back to 1777. Set among 200 hectares of orchards and gardens the place is simple and beautiful. Guests are welcome to roll up their sleeves and help with whatever needs to be done in the garden at the time including planting, pruning and picking. If that’s not your thing, then there is a pool and a dam in which to swim, hammocks in which to read, a yoga studio and spa with massage and therapies on offer. And after all of that activity, it’s reassuring to know that Babylonstoren take their food very seriously. Produce grown in the garden and orchard is made into delicious meals for the guests to enjoy in the dining room or under the plain trees in the courtyard.
But, I’d go just for the flock of geese.
