It has been a truly manic week here!
I thought I was prepared. House was clean. Christmas tree was up (if not fully decorated). And then we started to ship out the Oldfarm ham and pork orders!
I don’t know where the days disappeared to. So although I was here almost every day, nothing and I mean, NOTHING, got done. The house did manage to get untidy and dusty again! The Christmas tree was finished a week later!!!!!
So next year I will do things differently!!! I think I’ll have a live-in chef who will keep pots of tea going all day, and have dinner ready about 8 every evening, and I’ll have elves and fairies who will keep the house clean. It’s good to dream
In the midst of all that mayhem there were some lovely moments.
We’ve got some beautiful Christmas gifts.
So thank you to Maree for the beautiful Christmas cake, which I didn’t really get to taste as someone else in the house devoured it!!!! We are looking forward to trying your apple and cranberry chutneys.
Thank you to Karen at Follow the Food Link for the delicious home-made candied peel and Spiced Arancello… now that’s something to savour!
Thanks to Mona and Ron over at Wisewords for the Mexican Christmas Cookies – they’re all gone
Aren’t the shoe ornaments that Lorna at Garrendenny Lane sent us just devine?
Don’t you just love those two love birds? Well they were handmade by Sile of Silelooksup…. they are so so lovely.
And then I had to include the Christmas card that Catherine of MumofInvention sent…… think she got him in one!!!!
Thank you to everyone.
We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!
