Our tree went up this week. There was a bit of squabbling involved. I wasn’t well, so lay on the sofa directing affairs, and trying not to get annoyed when things didn’t look like I wanted them too. Half way through, I decided to just let the kids loose and stopped telling them what to […]
A thing of beauty that has been baking slowly all day and made my house smell amazing today. Christmas cake ready to be doused with brandy and left to do it’s Christmassy magic, ready to be taken to France to be eaten with cheese (I’m doing my research and finding something akin to Wensleydale) no […]
