As such, my last bits of Christmas organising has finally taken place. I will get the perishable food items on Friday and then that will be it with food shopping for quite a while. I marzipanned my Christmas cake last week and have finished icing that tonight. The grand unveiling will be in tomorrow's post (don't hold your breath, no really, don't.)
So finally I got my Christmas decs up. Now, don't be snooty about a fake tree, I would love a real one, but at £35 for a decent sized one (and size is everything) I will just as happily have my old fake (which is quite realistic really, if a little too perfect looking)
So, Santa's grotto is here in Lancashire, I've wrapped all my presents and put them under the tree, they will be delivered on Saturday.
There is something so relaxing about lighting some candles, pouring a nice glass of something home made and sitting with the lights winking around me.
