My first Christmas cakes with fondant icing - I usually choose royal icing whipped into a snowstorm of little peaks, but this year we thought we would try snowflakes instead of a snowstorm! It looks quite good.
And there is one for UJ to take home with him as well, with a slightly different pattern of snowflakes.
And this is the gorgeous bouquet of flowers I received today from a lady at chapel who was grateful for all the help I have given her since she broke her arm, she said - there was no need, but it was a lovely surprise for me!
I've had another nice but busy day, and the washing machine repair man came along, too. Unfortunately, the drum needs to be replaced, so he couldn't fix it today and has had to order a new drum. Someone will ring me next week [NEXT week!?!] to arrange a date for it to be fitted, so we are to be without a machine for some time.......I'll panic about that after Christmas!
Tomorrow's service is prepared, the veg are done, the sitting room is hoovered, and the sausages in bacon are defrosting. I think we are all ready, and I can go and have a shower and a rest.
A Very Merry Christmas to you all - wherever you are!
