Next Christmas…

George Michael died today. Imagine dying on Christmas Day? That’s about as sad as it gets. He was only 53. Since his death it has emerged that he was a massive philanthropist.

Meanwhile, at our house…it was our first Christmas on our own for…well for ages. We had a completely hygge Christmas, just the four of us and lots of peace and comfort and warmth.

First thing I made up a batch of shortbread which fitted beautifully, along with my mince pies from yesterday, on my wonderful Alice themed three tier cake stand, with cup (thank you, Mirinda).

I also iced my cake yesterday so it was ready to decorate before lunch.

We had the new traditional reading of Christmases Past Posts…which caused quite a few chuckles.

Lunch was a lo-carb turkey delight and delish…if I do say so myself.

I love this photo of Mirinda

And the cake, as a dessert, was lovely. It’s always a risk given it’s made so long ago but it was yum.

Late in the day we took the girls for a walk up to the Castle and back. A lot of other people had the same idea and there were a lot of Christmas greeting exchanges. It was the perfect end to our lunch.

Cheers & merry Christmas

While it was a lovely day, it’s going to make quite a dull read next year…
