I'm definitely feeling so much better now; I didn't cough or sneeze once yesterday and I woke with a clear nose this morning. Bliss!
I got the cake iced. It epitomises everything about my 'artistic' ability. I have the ideas and the results look OK but my sense of design and layout is not great. To me, it doesn't look quite right but I'm not sure why. Never mind, it was a first go and I bet it will taste good; it certainly smells great.
Sooze, those gingerbread biscotti are absolutely delicious, thank you very much for the recipe. After I'd made them, I gave the fridge a clear out and found I did have some stem ginger after all. Never mind, there will be another time (maybe even today), and the pineapple and peel worked really well. I do like 'bits' in biscotti.
I gave some to Lindsey, my personal trainer and got an email later saying "Oh my goodness! That gingerbread biscotti is Incredible xxx"
Definitely one to make again, maybe before Christmas, maybe with stem ginger this time.
In case you're interested, here's the link to the recipe (thanks again, Sooze)
I went round to Lindsey's for my training and found it went better than I thought it would go. I really get a rhythm going now and yesterday I achieved much more than I had expected. I do hope I'm able to keep it going in the future.
And then my ex student came round with mum and it was so lovely to see them. They're very happy at secondary school and was full of what's been going on in their life. So much confidence. It did my heart good.
Today starts off busy and then tails away into not much before it heats up again.
Jeff is coming at around 8:15 as it's not raining.
When he has finished, I'm off over the cul de sac to my friends for a pre-Christmas coffee and chat.
Then the time's my own until tuition and in the evening it is Slimming World.
Today's Christmas music is a John Rutter carol, Nativity Carol. I learnt it as a version for ladies and I love it.
