So this is a little later than planned owing to a bit of a baking extravaganza that has transformed my kitchen into what now resembles a bomb site.
But at last the presents are wrapped, the cranberry sauce and stuffing are made and the mince pies and other tasty treats have been baked. The damson gin has been decanted for a Christmas Eve tipple. And the house is decorated with some flowers picked from the garden and seed heads picked back in the autumn.
So all that is left, before I flop onto the sofa with a cup of tea, is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. Christmas can be a difficult time and so often doesn’t match the picture sold to us by TV programmes and magazines. Hopefully, though, there’ll be the chance to relax a little, enjoy some good food and company and recharge the batteries.
Merry Christmas, Love Wellywoman X
