A Belated Merry Christmas

Well, that was a bit crazy! I ended up frantically making things right up until just before Christmas - eek! Added to which, my job was also frantically busy and my body did it's usual end of year shutdown, presenting me with a horrible flu type thing, just when I didn't have time to get sick. Boooooo. Had a lovely Christmas with the boy's lovely family in the snowy South West though. I was still pretty ill, so everything was a little bit of a daze, but it was nice to have some enforced rest and the boy’s mum really looked after me.

Having just started to feel less ill, remembered we had agreed to hold NYE party. Bum. We are, however, dividing the party with our friends who live round the corner, which will be fun. They are hosting drinks and nibbles, then it's over to ours for giant buffet. How terribly grown up.

Spent most of yesterday prepping and cooking, so hopefully it will be okay. First ever attempt at proper pastry making about to go in the oven, so fingers crossed...

Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, have a lovely New Year.
