Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope you have all had a wonderful day.
I have been spoilt. It is so beautiful when people you care about show that they care back, in a special way. I won’t rattle on about the gifts I’ve received, but I will say that the love has been about as generous and as astute (his own words) as I could hope for him to be. And I would also really like to show off one particular present that I feel super-grateful for.
Two bears, one made by the love’s nan, the other equally as treasured.
Of course, cooking has featured heavily over the last few days. There are a lot of recipes I have wanted to make at Christmas for many years, and this time round I got to put a few of those to the test!
I made these, and I will post about them all in due course:
We were also blessed with another fantastic treat from the mother-in-law, whose efforts and presents are always thoughtful and brilliant. Here, she outdoes herself with cranberry and pistachio biscuits! We had ours with a glass of Vin Santo, rather than biscotti. I announced this beautiful wine a Christmas tradition last year. It is too good not to be celebrated properly.
Martin had a great time too.
