Christmas in a building site.

I have learnt something about myself today I am not as patient as I thought I was.
The builders left at 5pm yesterday they closed the door and all the work they had done fell off I mean completely good job no one was under it.  So something that would have taken two days looks like it will be longer.
Breath deeply, focus, visualize and have happy Christmas thoughts.
 O.k calmed down a touch and "My Builder" is doing some plastering up there I really love that man.
In the kitchen.
The tomatoes did not look they were getting red so I decided to use one of the spice mix that I  bought in Nazareth.So I decided to make some green tomato chutney the recipe is from hereI have done all my Food shopping for Christmas just need some bubbly and bacon.


  And then you have a lovely sunset and a party to go to where I will take photographs of youngster's of all ages enjoying themselves.


  1. Oh dear. Soooo sorry to hear of this. Best of luck to you and Merry Christmas.

  2. my sympathies are with you, I hate the mess when renovating, mind you I should be used to it, we've been renovating since we moved in here, nearly three years now!!!

    So neat that you went to Nazareth,

  3. goodness...
    be cool and have fun cathy..
    merry christmas..:)

    Tasty Appetite

  4. What a strange time for renovations. I guess it will be great when it's all done. Maybe you can still do a few small decorations somewhere were the builder won't be.

    Hope you still have a great time anyway. Maa

  5. "My builder" is a fantastic husband...I'm hopeful everything will be settled by Christmas! The chutney recipe sounds delicious! And the sunset is gorgeous!

  6. Tomatoes ... In December ... Oh my! :) We have snow and darkness, between 14:30 and 09:00, but today is the winter solstice, which means we expect brighter times! :)

    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  7. Oh my , what a challenging time! Goodluck with the building.Have enjoyed your Nazareth posts. So interesting to see another culture.
