Rushed these photos yesterday so they aren't great. Had a massive afternoon of baking yesterday (not my favourite thing to do!). I made these fiddly truffles which taste lovely and appear easy but aren't! I also baked/ prepared another batch of shortbread, chocolate balls, pavlova....
and peppermint meringues. I was so tired after all that work. The kitchen is still grubby and needs a major clean today. We are having our family Christmas tonight and so all needs to be ready.
The gifts are wrapped. I had forgotten how long it all takes.
I also received some lovely gifts this week. How lucky am I? See the gorgeous little Christmas house behind the bears.
This is the loveliest tea caddy with a very special glass bee hanger.
I also received this crocheted decoration.
Another special gift was this little blue and white ceramic machine. It will go so well with my blue and white crockery. I feel very blessed to have such lovely friends.
