Today

A chilly walk to deliver the last of the village cards.
The lighting of the Swedish Angel chimes and cooling of the yule cake 
Finishing off the handmade gifts.
Making leek and potato soup in the slow cooker. 
Cooking veggie lasagne and sticky toffee pudding.
Wrapping the last few pressies.
And displaying the last (yes the few remaining uneaten) gingerbread stars in a wreath.


And you?
what are you up to today?
We're are about to set off for our chrimbly meal with my folks,
we eat ours on Christmas Eve.

Wishing you all a gentle, loving, peaceful
and kind Christmas, 
I'll pop back during 'Twixtmas' and say hello

with love and jingle bells

  4. Sort of what I have been doing all day only I didn't get my walk ... tch! Far too much to do. Coincidentally we have Christmas Eve dinner too with all my Spanish family ... a really big do and all the family attend so I have been baking for that. I have also prepared the meal for Christmas day in advance. Lovely Christmas decorations! As I said in my previous comment...shame to eat those wonderfully decorated ginger biscuit. Wishing you and yours a super good Christmas Kate. :-). Amanda x

  5. It is quiet here as we celebrated Christmas with our children and grands on Sunday. It's the first time we have all been together in three years and it was wonderful. Hubby and I will have a quiet Christmas Day, opening gifts in the morning, making lasagna for dinner and we'll for sure watch The Christmas Story! Hope you have a wonderful day.

    1. Gingerbread biscuits make such lovely gifts, and in this case entertainment too, kept us busy both in the making and the eating๐Ÿ˜

  9. On Christmas Eve I cleaned the entire house as it had been much neglected for over a month, and tackled the enormous ironing pile. I made a cake and had a snooze on the sofa! It was a full but lovely day.

    I hope your family meal went well and you and yours have all had a lovely Yuletide xx
