Catching up

14 Days to go ......

Very busy lately as I have had Fairs every weekend for the last month, can have a rest this week as I only have one order to complete and just the coffee morning to prepare for on Sunday....snatched a little time to update the blog as I'm under orders to wait in for a delivery for Mr H today....not my speciality - waiting....I suppose there is always the laundry pile...but that can wait a little longer.....

Wish I had a time Turner

Honestly where does all the time go ? Family life , homework, secret Christmas shopping, prearations for the Christmas Fair, craft Fairs.....the list is endless and still no Christmas cake made...just wish there were a few more hours in the day sometimes....I have a batch of Christmas scones in the oven at the moment, they smell lovely - I do a rich scone dough with egg added and a generous amount of sweet mincemeat and orange zest - they freeze really well ... I'm going to serve them with brandy cream, very festive - I hope...

Decorations in the making
