Let the festivities begin....

The tree and decorations are up, we don't have that much but it still worked out to be be a two day job! Ebi-kun managed to stick at the tree for quite a while, in years gone by her would put on three baubles and declare he was bored! Of course, we had 74 blue baubles on one branch and several bare patches, which is compulsory when a child decorates a tree I believe.

His letter to Santa is written and sent .....


and I will be picking up the ingredients to make the first batch of mince pies of the year. I know my Canadian friends go mad for cookies in the holiday season but in this household it is mince pies all the way.

  5. the mincemeat and xmas pus are not cheap BUT I don't buy speical foreign food the rest of the year so I see it as a treat to splash out at Christmas, I squirrel money away in the months running up to the big day so it isn't as painful lol.
