Well its nearly here and I have been busy doing my Christmas Shopping (still some presents to get) but Saturday morning this was what greeted me from my bedroom window,
so we are a little bit stranded as they don’t clear country lanes! I know it looks pretty but I need to get out and I am a little worried that my boys won’t be able to get here. The OH says I am panicking and he is probably right I am sure it will all turn out okay in the end.
Finished decorating the home – I have been busy making this bunting, really pleased with it – I haven’t bought any new decorations this year just made them and I am very pleased with them all if I say so myself!
not too good a photo but I have cross stiched HAPPY CHRISTMAS on it
not quite like the magazine!!Had some very disappointing news this week, my sister Diane is unable to visit me for the new year celebrations and I was so looking forward to being with her as haven’t seen her during the Christmas time for nearly 10 years now, perhaps one day I will.
Well its back to the kitchen - now whats on my list to do today – stolen, cranberry sauce, brandy butter, ice the cake, better get started Cd player is at the ready to keep me going I don’t know about you but one of my favourite carols is In the Bleak Midwinter whats yours? I also love The Pretenders singing 2000 miles. It really reminds me of my boys when they were little we were always playing it!
At this time of year there is something else that I love to make on Christmas Eve and that is a lovely Champagne cocktail, its one part limoncello to one part orange liquor and then topped up with Chanpagne or Prosecco, gorgeous!! Try it if you dare!
I don’t know whether I will have time to blog before Christmas so I would love to send you all a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS and enjoy all the festivities and being with friends and family.
