Oh Christmas tree

Lily has exclaimed over and over this week…”Look, beautiful Christmas Tree!” We managed to all gather to decorate the tree on Monday night. For some reason we did not get a picture of Lily and Andrew was taking the shots.

I have had a huge present sorting and wrapping session today – all those treasures I have been buying throughout the year needed organising. I am almost done…almost.

I have had my fruit soaking in alcohol for some days now…..each day turning out to be no good for baking the Xmas cake. I grabbed a jar of fruit mince and all the spices needed for some gingerbread and other fun baking. Donna Hay has some lovely ideas for Christmas treats.

Wishing we could have some of the cold and snow of a Northern Hemisphere Xmas. We loved our Christmas in London. Thinking of Christine and Anne!!

Here we all are….
