"Show us ya baubles!"

Posted: 22/12/2015 at 13:54

Ok - not quite a tree, but it has baubles on it, so I think it counts.  This is littlest chicklets christmas creation (although it was me that baked the cake)

Sympathies to Wonky - woke up with snivels here too, that are so far being kept at bay by day nurse - think its my body's natural reaction to finishing work for the year

However, cake iced ....very pleased.  Will share pics tomorrow when I have sourced a bit of ribbon to tie round it.

Think we are off for a family trip to the local curry house this evening celebrate the fact that we are all in .... although I guess that means we won't be in after all

Good luck with the surgeon tomorrow Hosta 

And if Pdoc is looking in.....we are thinking of you

Morning all

last day at work for me today.  Mr C is also going back to work for the first time since his troubles. a staged return planned over the next few weeks.  He seems to be getting back on his feet again nicely now.  Best present I will get this holiday, for sure

Cake decorating planned for this evening .....littlest chicklet has an ambitious plan

Glad your holiday is finally sorted Hosta - by the time you're back we will be marching towards spring ....sounds like a very good plan

If you do decide to go with Ashridge, I can certainly recommend them.  Have had numerous trees and hedging plants from them over the years and they have been excellent.  Great website, with loads of helpful videos too

Hardy Geranium?

Phew. Thats the first, non perishable, shop done, and all squirreled away.  Now all i have to do is turn it into delicious puddings and biscuits.  Not too bad in our local W fact, quite a pleasant experience.  And I have Chicklets on hand to help with the baking 

So I shall join you in putting my feet up this evening, with a small glass of something nice and cold.

Oh, and my first hellebore is in bloom
