IF. Balloon

December’s here, Christmas and all it brings is just around the corner!

For someone with a mouth full of sweet teeth there’s so much to look forward to, mince pies, chocolates, biscuits, mince pies, Christmas cake, trifle, mince pies, Christmas pudding, mince pies, stollen and not forgetting mince pies (my favourites).
The problem…blowing up like a balloon!
So it’s everything in moderation, watch what I eat, don’t over do it or I could hit a gym in Jan?

Errm…pass me a pie!
