Good morning, everyone.  A lovely sunny morning today - hope it lasts!

It was, as expected, a very busy day yesterday but I got a lot done.  I finished the nativity set, took some photos (as you can see) and got it posted off.  The sheep took ages - they are so fiddly.
I cleared all the knitting stuff away so my corner in now neat and tidy.
Here's a few other photos to go with the new header and as today's Advent Offering.

I made a batch of fudge and cut it up.  It's now divided out and in bags for gifts for the girls when they come for lunch.  I was remarkably good.  One tatty bit to taste and a few crumbs might also have made their way into my mouth but it wasn't a catastrophe by any means.
I even managed to remember to take a photo . . .

It's very good.  A bit 'rustic' looking but so delicious.

I also made a spicy miced bean dip for lunch and got other things ready to put together soon.  I'ver gone a bit retro with Delia's vegetarian sausage rolls, pineapple, cheese and tomato on sticks and some spicy chicken as well as other bits and bobs.  I think it will be a tasty lunch.

Today this is late because I've been bustling around getting things ready.  It's almost done now and I'm having a breather before doing the last few thing on the list.  Yes, I have a list and it's been a life-saver! 
I've even remembered to get the wheelchair ramps out. 

Better go and do the last bits and bobs now, empty the dishwasher and finish getting the table ready.  Should be a lot of fun.

Have a good day.


  1. Thanks, Lynn. I'm looking forward to it very much.

  2. Your nativity set is lovely and as for that fudge ... very tempting! I hope you enjoy your meal today x

  3. The fudge looks delicious - and rustic looking is definitely best, makes it look exactly what it is - deliciously homemade and not factory made!

  4. Thank you, ladies. The fudgy gifts went town really well and I'm hoping the recipient liked the crib as much in the flesh as she did in the photo!

    It's been a lovely day!
