Jack Frost has visited us over night and its very cold outside, so I think I will stay in the warm today. I also started with a cold a few days ago so I've had several dates with blackcurrent lemsip!!!
Emily came yesterday and stayed over night. She wants to bake today. She wants to bake a cake to decorate with Christmas cake decoration and take home to her Mum, Dad and brothers for Christmas Day. She had great fun last night looking through the cake decorations that I've kept for such a time from when her Dad and Auntie Samantha was small and we used to bake in the days leading up to Christmas. We used to bake Mince pies, sausage rolls, Christmas cakes, maids of honour, millionaires shortbread(one of my favourites) and all manner of festive goodies. Now days lots of people no longer like fruit cakes and mince pies, so I I rarely bake them (I have to watch my weight these days). Joe the hubster has never been a fan of them either!!!
Now for something a little bit different today, no card but a hand crafted decoration . . . .
I made this for Oscar's 1st Christmas, he loved it because there is a bell on it and it made a noise. His mummy loved it because it was traditional & especially for Oscar . . .
