We’ve once again mastered to survive pre-christmas stress with last-minute shopping, delays while travelling to the beloved ones, the obligatory christmas disputes between family members, the annual once-a-year visit to church, and loads and loads of good food and cookies.

For me that’s always a good time to remember how damn good my life is. I got a little post card from Caritas (the organisation we support for aid projects) that said: “Luck is the only thing doubling when shared”

So here is a very nice way to do something good – fast and easy!
