Christmas Eve

One of the joys of Christmas Eve is listening to A Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols whilst busy in the kitchen icing the Christmas cake and doing a bit of last-minute baking.

The service has just finished and I have iced and decorated our Christmas cake. Time for a cup of tea and then I will start on the baking and preparing the vegetables in advance of our Christmas dinner.

I went for a walk this morning and the snow is deep and crisp, though not very even. We have about 50-60 cm of lying snow now and walking is extremely difficult after last night's fresh snowfall. I came back wet and cold, but with glowing cheeks.

I wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy the season and keep warm!
