I can't believe that 2011 is almost over, where did the time go? I am pleased to say that I am further along with my Christmas preparations than I have been for the past 2 years, I hope that means I am healthier this year. The Brandy butter and Cranberry Jelly is made and I made my cake in October. I have been feeding the cake with Brandy every few days and it now sits on my cake stand all marzipaned, iced and decorated. I managed to get all my Christmas cards made, written and sent before the last posting day which is unusual for me. The gifts are all wrapped and under the tree, I even managed to make my own tags and decorate the packages. I do have to pick up the Turkey and trimmings today but it has been ordered so I don't have to worry about everything being sold out. We are going to Church tonight, a Carol Service followed by my most favourite Mass of the year.
We have a tradition in my family of not exchanging gifts until after lunch is over and the dishes have been washed, that way everyone is able to enjoy the present opening.
Well I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and I hope you find some nice crafting goodies under your tree this year.
