Feeling brighter. Phew!
Family came around for dinner yesterday, and I cooked a Bakewell Tart for pudding. I will definitely cook this again, it came out very well. I was going to use some of the jam I made from my Blackberry picking at the start of the summer; but as I had to pop to the shop for icing suger, Man Wonderful decided (!) that raspberry jam would be better - really, he loves the blackberry jam to himself...
The family left at 7 to go to watch a fireworks display. I don't 'do' fireworks - never have - so we settled down to watch rugby and read, and it was a lovely chilled-out evening.
Today I'm off to visit a couple of friends I haven't seen for a couple of weeks. One makes gorgeous coffee, so I'm greedily looking forward to that, too!
How is your Christmas preparation going? I have almost finished my gift shopping, and have decided the colour for our decorations. This year we are going to have Navy blue and silver decorations. I make almost all the decorations and have just a little Navy blue to use for some ornaments.
