a break in the weather

In between all this run up to and Christmas celebration we have been dealing with this weather and the issues it brings when caring for our animals on a daily basis.  So it was lovely to see a break in the rain today; we duly rushed down to the coast and the sea looked like this…

and Boxing Day

In our house we do not only have the pleasure in celebrating Christmas, but Boxing Day is a birthday day here as well.  so this year, despite hurting the tendon in my hand 2 days earlier, created (not a brilliant looking) Yule Log = did taste better than it looked !!!

Chistmas Day is here...

So Christmas has arrived & we love our cakes; so for Christmas day created this fruit cake ring.  Decorated with the obligatory snowman & Sion Corn (Welsh for Santa here) and eaten with chestnut puree, recipe learnt from when I did the Christmas course.
