My shopping arrived at 1am, on the dot. I felt so sorry for the driver – he must have had a horrendous day but he was still smiling as delivered my shopping! No2 and I carried it into the kitchen, put the fridge and freezer stuff away and left the rest until this morning!
In case you are interested, I did the ironing, made the tiramisu (I must post this recipe one day. It was given to me by an Italian lady who lived next door to my friend when she lived in Warwick. It is heavy on grappa, but oh, so good), wrapped a few presents and did some hand-quilting to while away the hours!
My Christmas tree is now in the living room and I spent a leisurely afternoon decorating it after clearing the car and drive of 8 inches of snow. That’s a lot of snow for London.
At last, I have some twinkle.
When my parents moved house they gave me a couple of boxes of old books that belonged to my uncle’s father. I decided to use them to decorate my fireplace. I had put a couple on the mantle a couple of weeks ago and so added some more to the hearth.
Some of the titles are quite intriguing. I think I might read them and better myself.
I have lit my orange and clove candles and the room is filled with a Christmas aroma. Just wish I’d made some more mince pies… perhaps tomorrow.
