One year I managed to post on my blog every day of December.
So it's hats off to those who are prepared for Christmas. Yesterday my husband and I were out doing some last minute shopping.
He does strange things at Christmas, like opening his wallet and buying a hat!
We stopped off for a coffee and shared a mince pie. He had the fork, I had the spoon.
It looked good but we had to pull it apart.
What a disappointment. Talk about a soggy bottom.I complained... Bah Humbug....
On down the road and these lonely trees were just waiting for someone to give them a good home.
Or this one below, stitched on plastic canvas, by Laura from my craft group.
Oh, I did feel sorry for those lonely trees.
I hung some baubles on this dried flower arrangement. Somehow my husband caught his hat on it and half the baubles fell off. I gave up! That's the Morrocan lantern I made for C&G. I put a light inside it when Christmas comes.
Didn't I say my husband acted strangely at Christmas? He bought a Santa Suit for a bargain price.
I did some Christmas baking - Lemon Drizzle cake, Florentines, Pecan Brownies, Tiffin,
Battenburg Brandy Balls, Fudge, Fifteens - some were good and some didn't please me despite following all the recipes to the letter.. icing sugar and packaging to the rescue.
My son's girlfriend showed us how things should be done!
Chocolate Yule Log. Showing my age I say, "Is it Delia's?"
"No, it's Paul Hollywood's."
That old silver fox!
His recipes are 'Never Fail.'
Out for a bit of Christmas shopping and I thought about Nigella.
Her recipe book now relegated to the Sale shelf in M&S.
Who'd have thought?
I was feeling sorry for her and then these carol singers took my attention - they were good.
Then there were the dancers in the 'Strictly' final.
They were good too and I thought the best girl won.
After another week or so of all these festivities and I'll be looking like this penguin.
I'm already half way there. Help!
