Operation Christmas Spirit
Operation Christmas spirit: this is my last ditch attempt to feel festive, after feeling decidedly meh! after the pottery Christmas party yesterday.
So up with kiddies at 8.30, despite a lousy night, despite it being my writing day. And straight into the kitchen. I unleashed my inner domestic goddess, who has been away these past weeks, perhaps even months, whilst creative rainbow mama has been here writing books. And so in two hours we made:
- clementine jelly
- cranberry sauce
- cranberry, pecan, dark choc and orange cookies
- gingerbread cookies
- mulled apple juice
Oh it made me chuckle – thank you Leigh . As did the comment that another reader left at the bottom of my Santa post about collecting kangaroo poo from the Australian bush to act as reindeer poo! Hahaha!
So all it leaves me to say is have a very Merry Christmas, dearest readers. We are set to hit 50,000 page views before Christmas day which is very exciting. Thank you for coming back again and again and sharing the journey. It is all the more rich with you here.
I would love a festive hello from all my readers below. If you’ve never said hi, take a deep breath and de-lurk yourself (thank you SO much Lucy for your lovely de-lurking email this morning- it made me smile!).
Tell me what you REALLY want this Christmas.
Me? I REALLY want to hold my own book in my hands, and have a “placing it on my own bookshelf ceremony” – which is why I have been working SO hard on it!
That and a night’s sleep. But I’ve been asking for that for 7 years!
Merry Christmas one and all, and to all a good night (‘s sleep!)
