Fruit cakes, small and large, Fruit Mince Tarts, White Christmas, Rum Balls, Apricot Balls, Shortbread Drops. YUM! We purchase the Gingerbread readymade - but SHHHH don't tell anyone!!
We're off to a very hot start to summer here with quite a bit of very welcome rain as well. The grass and weeds are certainly enjoying the season!
With school finished for another year the past week has been much more manageable with only work to worry about. We are counting down to a very much needed holiday at the end of the month, so I am starting to feel excited in anticipation, despite the work that will have to be done between now and then.
Alexandra and I had a wonderful afternoon yesterday. We put on some lovely Christmas music and decorated the house. It was the first time she has stuck with me through the whole process - I didn't know whether to be happy or sad since it must mean she is growing up. I won't try to include photos today as my internet is on the very go slow at the moment, next week brings fast access again!
I have started some gift shopping but dreading having to really get organised! I find boys and brothers so hard to buy for. Any ideas?
Another storm on the way this afternoon, time for a cup of tea and a bit of a rest for awhile! Hopefully, to listen to some more beautiful rain on the roof.
