|Just a teeny bit in love with my boots!!!|
|Ready for this years Christmas Menu to be typed and popped inside.|
|Chocolate Fudge with a smidgen of Cointreau....yum.|
|Mince pies with a cake topping.|
Well, it is the last week before Christmas and I am counting down the days and the tasks that I need to do during each one because it usually just seems to run away with itself each year. I have one or two more presents I'd like to find, and then it is the trip to the market and the shop to collect the Turkey etc. I don't do much pre-freezing as I prefer to do it all right at the end. It sort of makes Christmas Eve more special.
We went to see Sherlock Holmes last night and it was every bit as good as the first one. I'd also gone to visit a friend in Amsterdam during the afternoon and the drive there was not so nice! I went through every weather imaginable from bright, low sun, to ice and snow and hail!!! The sky was absolutely black in some patches and even some flashes of lightning appeared in the distance. Around Purmerend it was just a standstill as the snow came out of the blue and no-one was expecting it. Still, I did ok, and Sooty was wonderful and we made the trip safely.
I hope that you are all getting into the final countdown with peace and serenity and as little stress as possible! My thoughts are with Becci as she has a job interview tomorrow, and we are crossing everything for her. Tim is in the bakery all week so I am expecting a very tired lad by Saturday evening.
Me, a little bit of work this week, and the rest is coming along nicely.
