Oops, Hazel: at least you spotted the signs before total disaster!! Best treat yourself (& OH) to a 'restorative' tot + tonic & a couple of mince pies whilst you count your blessings!
Thanking you, both Frank & Hazel for your kind wishes for our anniversary. We haven't any family in Wales now, so we re-import our exported son, Aidan & his family when we get a chance to celebrate! Both our parental homes were in adjacent villages on the N Warwicks / S Staffs border, so the diminishing tribal survivors are a full 200 miles from us. Each gathering therefore, is full of significance for all of us.
*We none of us like icing, but we do love nuts n' fruit toppings, so this is the 'Deliarised' Christmas / cum Anniversary cake which we will all be setting about over the next few days [it rarely sees the New Year!! (Mrs M does the baking, I am responsible for the 'decor'].
