It really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… On Monday we saw (but sadly didn’t get a photo as we were driving) the famous Father Christmas coca-cola truck. Then yesterday we decorated our trees (one real, one artificial)
The big D and I also had the important task of making the Christmas cake. So out came Delia. We both decided that the recipe needed amending so we quadrupled the quantity of glacé cherries. Honestly she was a bit frugal with them if we’re honest. I did a lot of stirring and spoon licking.
I also got to open the first window of my advent calendar which was made for me by my best friend. That was an unexpected treat – but I didn’t quite understand why I was only allowed the one piece of chocolate when there were 25 on offer (it’s handy to be able to count that high – no one can pull the wool over my eyes!).
