Has it been this long since I blogged?!?!?!?

Oh my goodness. I can hear Bells now saying "Yes, yes it has been that long, I've been on your back!" And of course after seeing this pic you'll think that all I'm going to blog about is pav after the last post, but I must sit and brag that Nigella's chocolate pav for Christmas day turned out magnificently and was eaten with much gusto!!! Alas, there seemed to be no raspberries in this part of my world but strawberries worked just as well.

As for Christmas, what a lovely time we've had. Saturday spent with both sets of parents and my grandma. How lucky to get two Christmasses!

Sunday night was the annual lolly run around town. Scotty wanted to be a reindeer this year. How on earth do I pull that one off, but I did and here's the finished product, along with Molly getting to meet Santa, not sure what she really thought of him!

And then actual Christmas Day was spent deliciously at home here. Seeing the kids in the morning and then lunch and the afternoon spent lounging around, eating good food, drinking good wine, and opening presents between ourselves. What more could I ask for.

Happy New Year to anyone who happens to think my blog is read-worthy and might be reading this!
