Friend came this morning and we made about 40 bunches to decorate the pews in the Abbey for Sunday's Carol Service. She's a new friend, lives in town but has been here about 11 years, only met her recently. She's an artist and English.
Must make 100 mince pies, shall cheat and use bought puff pastry and Robertson's mincemeat. Sunday morning I will be making 15L mulled wine, another friend will make another 15L. Then next week, Friday, there will be another English Carol Service in a local church. We'll have a cheap bubbly for that as local priest doesn't want wine stains on the stone floor.
The Gardening Club nearest me stopped for the winter. Think I will have to suggest a Christmas meal next year, Dordogne Damsel. Sounds fun.
