Am full to bursting. Friends to lunch and we've only just finished the washing up - and I have a dishwasher. Was going to watch Strictly but it's on so early I wasn't ready so it's recording. Midwives next. Hope you've all had a good day.

The goose is in the oven, stuffed with chestnut stuffing. Herby sausagemeat stuffing is made for the guinea fowl. Veggies are ready. Friends are doing starter and pud.

Have a lovely day all.

Lovely Fairygirl, gosh that icing is smooth.

What happens then when Christmas is over and the spiders re-appear to enlarge their webs?

Lovely photos, Berghill, just the thing to brighten up a December day.

Dining room table is set for tomorrow, house is de-cobwebbed (wonder how long that will last?), glass paned doors cleaned. Now to make stuffing and prepare veg.

What rotten luck about your back DD, hope it feels better tomorrow. I hope you are having a break from the B&B.

I can just repeat what everyone has said - that is brilliant, Fairy. I've read it out loud to OH, copied it onto Word and filed it and printed it out.

I got a recipe from Google, Jo, but they are all similar, cook for about 3 1/2 hours, just the seasonings are different.

Don't know what in order the pics and writing will appear, never the same as I posted!

 And the crib as well. My brother brought back the figures from Bethlehem, carved in olive wood.




Here is the tree with the lights on, though I prefer the photo I sent before with lights off. Much better in real life than photo with lights. A bit of bling on the dining room ceiling and a bit of greenery on the stairs to the study.

Morning all. No wind here. Good luck Hosta and hubby.

Shall make chestnut stuffing for the goose and prepare veggies today and do some housework. Looks like a lovely gardening day though. I'll do the guinea fowl stuffing, which has some sausage meat, tomorrow.
