I'm using HM mincemeat date 2007 - will mix it with a bit of shop bought stuff and give it a slurp!

Daughter rang me up asking if I have a 1.7l pudding basin and lid. she is feeding partners family Christmas day. I am waiting for more urgent phone calls, requests for equipment. She cooked the dinner 2 years ago and said 'never again' but I guess she's mellowed.

Just lit burner which haven't done for a few nights: tree, decorations, wrapping paper everywhere (not necessarily on presents), 'beginning to look a lot like Christmas'

Thing is last couple of days, as it's been mild, and garden has been calling me

Yes it is tree day tomorrow. Know rush though Jo there are 24hours in a day 

Blind men have been and hopefully dog and us will now have an undisturbed night - and yes I do know what i have written it's like asking how do you make a Roman blind

Lovely tree Rain.

Now have my mothers old tree up in the dining room, have not found her decorations but have a few of ours. It was bitter sweet as it is the tree she fell n which started all her problems

we promiced our son we would not baby anything big, I have just wrapped a box full of little things, it would have been easier to buy one big pressie, but we do as we are told - well mostly

So sorry about your friend Maud, it is hard no matter what time of the year it happens.

This really made me smile, 

In fact lots of things are making me smile. At the moment waiting for the men to come and fix the new blind so that we can sleepin peace, Really pleased with the service, buy local again, not too costly and gfast service

Quick break while son held cat to put flea suff on, it hurts her so it is unpleasant but it stops her getting poorly again.

I thought I'd finish the shop today but also found date stamps were quite short so I guess we'll have to go on Thursday and fight the crowds
