Morning all you earlybirds. Hope Barbara leaves soon - sounds like people have escaped damage so far. i'm with you Lesley - high winds are the scariest thing - probably living in woodland doesn't help with that.

Wrapping mission accomplished last night - took hours, but glad it is now done.  Today is cooking - mars bar cake (from the Blue Peter Christmas annual circa 1975), rich tea biscuit slices, chocolate mousse and a raspberry cheesecake.  That should suit the sophisticated palates of the Chicky household

Like lots of you, today was my food shopping day. Got everything I needed, its all put away, and there were no queues - all in all quite a pleasant experienceπŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ»βœ¨

Tonight is present wrapping (chicklet is taking over the kitchen to cook Christmas dinner for her friends, so I can happily hide away with my wrapping paper, sticky tape and bowsπŸŽ€πŸŽ€πŸŽ€) and tomorrow is baking, of the pudding and treats variety.  Must get my Kings Choir Carols out 

Now sitting down for a cuppa and a slice of panetonne

Have a great trip catching up with old friends DD

Berlin news awful.  Went to that market a few times in 2013 - one of the prettiest.  Such pointless violence.

Back from a great couple of days in London - cracking meal out last night, and muchwandering today in the sunshine.  Went to the new Design museum - very good.  Lots on sustainability and the challenges of climate change, so I was all eyes and ears.
