Christmas is coming 3

Iced the Christmas Cake today, it must be 15 years since I last made royal icing! All things considered it looks ok and the boys liked using the leftover icing to decorate the biscuits. I think a bath will be required soon. Going to make more mince pies and try not to eat them all. Thought it might have been a good day to go and take photo's of waves but the last torrential downpour has made my mind up.

Christmas is coming 2

Decorations are up! Christmas cake is soaking up the Brandy, and the mince pies......well the 1st batch were very good. I don't have much evidence to back that up as I ate 10 out of 12! Have heard that the Turkey is now very worried about the future, but he should be happy because the cranberry sauce taste's lovely. Only 10 more sleeps to go according to our eldest and I have a feeling they are going to be shorter every night.

Christmas is coming 1

It's been decided on higher authority than mine that today's the day the Christmas decorations go up! I don't have the patience for it all, the furniture shifting and left a bit, right a bit hassle to make sure everything is even etc. I love the look of the house when its all done and it really means Christmas is coming. How long the tree will stay up could be interesting, our youngest has started climbing and might just see the tree as his next Everest! In past years i have been able to escape using work as excuse, but this year I can't so I'm going to retreat to the kitchen and bake mince pies and the Christmas cake.
