Saturday preparation's for Christmas

  It was a lovely morning it was warm enough to have breakfast outside.

The geranium are loving this weather

The red trolley has been put to use collecting some wood for the fire there is a lot of wood about at the moment people have been pruning their trees before the winter
 The Christmas New year's pudding we started making today it is a Delia Smith recipe Traditional Christmas pudding

Also soaking some dried fruit to make mince meat and this one I just made up as I went a long whatever I had in my cupboard

The boys stirring the pudding and making a lot of wishes
and I mean a lot

It looks like we might have a white Christmas this is a view from the attic window.
day three of ginger beer
