I (as posted on a new thread) have started practising my Xmas cooking! I have been meaning to try making little festive treats for a few Xmases now, but for many reasons it just hasn't happened. So now I am trialling a few simple recipes without the pressure of impending Xmas (well unless you count 350

Ahem. Wrong button.

... Unless you count 355 days as impending) and it doesn't matter if it goes wrong - which knowing me it will!

I bought a few more presents today. AND managed to finish present shopping for one of my friends from home (the US). Wahoo!

Hope you're feeling better Rabid. Dd back to pre-school tomorrow - it's been a long 2 weeks.

RabidCarrot Sun 06-Jan-13 13:47:17

Thank you buzz, feeling a bit better then yesterday but still rubbish, made it from the bed to the sofa today.
It is back to school here to tomorrow (and college for me but I don't think I will be going)

I think the holidays flew past too fast, they always do sad

Happy New Year all, and glad to see that this is rolling along again!!

Just back at work today after a MANIC festive season (including lots of travel, illness and general madness and chaos) - so I didn't get online at all over the hols.

We've decided ONE thing about next Christmas - we are travelling down and staying in PIL's (unless my parent's rental is empty and we can stay there for free). Renting for the week is madness prices, and it was a bit too quiet on Christmas Day this year.

Hope you're feeling better today Rabid - I am dosed up on various remedies to get me through (between keeping the family going and so many of my staff out with various medical and family issues, I need to stay standing).

I've still got Hallowe'en decorations in my garden blush from my Hallowe'en Party.

But, I've managed to get the Christmas decorations put away <<phew>>

(Think I'll leave the bats hanging up TBH. They're fetching)

I picked up a couple of stocking stuffers in Topshop yesterday!!

I must pop into M&S and Boots for wrapping paper etc before the sales end.

And today's job is to roll over the annual excel spreadsheet and set the basic budget for all.

I am such a saddo grin

Good work Biddy. I need to finish my debrief document smile

I'm also going to take a last look around the supermarkets today for any remaining Christmas pudding. I have a recipe for Christmas pudding muffins and really intend to practice making them this spring as a trial for the Big Event.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 09-Jan-13 19:37:51

smile I have not seen that yet. Enjoy!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Fri 11-Jan-13 00:08:18

If we get snow at the weekend I may have to 'recreate' Christmas (Sunday Roast dinner with my nice tablecover, some party poppers and a Christmassy Fillum)

Oh Yes. blush

How many days until I can do it for real then Rabid ?

TodaysAGoodDay Fri 11-Jan-13 00:36:31

Ooo, can I join in please? We have a small santa chalk board up at home with a countdown on it that gets changed every day, much to my DB and SIL's disgust. Well bah humbug to them I say. Roll on Christmas grin

RabidCarrot Fri 11-Jan-13 07:02:48


I have a chalk board, that is how it all started grin
