The Saturdays’ Christmas party

Hello everyone

We all had a really great evening on Wednesday for the Sats’ Christmas party. We went for a very unChristmassy Japanese meal at Nobu – we thought with all the Christmas food we’d be eating over the next couple of weeks it’d be better to switch it up a bit – and it was absolutely delicious.

It’s tradition for Rochelle, Vanessa, Mollie, Frankie and I to get together with our management team for a festive gathering. It’s nice to catch up outside of work and reflect on the year. 2013 has been a great one for the band – we scored our first number one with What About Us in March and of course Frankie and Rochelle have both become mums.

I’m so looking forward to a bit of Christmas indulgence. I normally end up eating twice as much as I normally do at this time of year but it wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t do that. I won’t be in Ireland for Christmas this year and I’ll be missing garlic crab claws like mad. They’re my dad’s signature dish and the best way to kick off the celebrations. I have to save myself for dinner though because I really love to tuck in and pile my plate high.

A typical Christmas for my family involves turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, carrots, sprouts, pigs in blankets. I can’t normally face dessert so just go for an Irish coffee instead. My dad makes them really well with the cream perfectly sat on top and a dash of whiskey. After coffee come the chocolates… Celebrations, Quality Street, Miniature Heroes – the whole lot! The purple Quality Street with hazelnut is my absolute favourite – everyone knows to leave it for me otherwise there’s trouble!

Then the board games begin – Scrabble, Bananagrams, Monopoly, Pictionary and charades are our favourites. When we were little my big sister and our big cousins would always have singing competitions too (the kind where everyone was a winner!). I still get really competitive over Christmas board games, it’s more fun with some friendly rivalry.

I’m starting to wind down for Christmas now. I’ve got all my shopping done and just a bit of wrapping left to do. Hope you’re all set too.
