After weeks and weeks of planning, it’s all over in a heartbeat! I had a lovely relaxed day with the family, and only one culinary disaster (always make sure that you and your beloved are working in the same units – pounds and kilos are not even vaguely the same thing!).
Despite wishing really hard for snow, it didn’t happen. Instead we were blessed with beautiful sunshine all day and a fine frost on the fields. The sheep didn’t seem to mind.
The hot chocolate bar was a great success, though the hot chocolate itself was so redonculously rich that nobody managed more than one cup.
Esme made these fantastic woodland themed gingerbread biscuits to match our Christmas table. The cutters were an impulse buy from our pre-Christmas trip to Ikea.
I had worried that I wouldn’t be able to get the tree slices that I wanted for our place settings, but the ever wonderful Galgael saved the day and I can’t thank them enough!
We played our traditional yearly game of the Nightmare Before Christmas board game while we watched the film. It was a five way draw. Again!
I hope you all had a fabulous day – Merry Christmas!
