Happy Holidays ...

Almost there, taking it easy sitting up in bed listening to Christmas classics on SmoothChristmas.  Is 8.45 am too early for Advocaat?  Yes, I thought so too, but Rusinurbis got me thinking this to be the perfect accompaniment when icing the Christmas cake.  You will find me later, pointing the hair dryer at my cake in a desperate attempt to dry it out in time for the festivities.

What last minute preparations are you involved in right now?

Happy Holidays xxx


  1. I should really be in the kitchen making mince pies, but I'm actually on the sofa in pyjamas, snuggled under a fleecy blanket! I'll move in a little while.Have a happy Christmas.

  2. It's never too early for Advocaat on Christmas Eve! I should be making custard for trifle, peeling a million sprouts and various other veg, making mince pies, wrapping presents, dropping presents off ... I'd rather be here chatting with you! xx`

  3. I still have the pumpkin pie to make..I think that is all..I think!
    Have a Merry Christmas :)

  6. Me too, cherries have also been purchased. Next we will be wanting Babycham!
