Happy New Year!!

Have been neglecting my blog of late - excuse  - which I am sure you can appreciate that Christmas got in the way!
Christmas was wonderful yet exhausting.  It makes you wonder why we buy so much for what is effectively one day.
60 mince pies made some of which were made by my grandchildren who love to "help" - we had lots of fun and Christmas is all about children.

They are still at the stage where we have to look after Santa Claus and his reindeers. They carefully left out 2 mince pies and a glass of sherry for them and were delighted when Santa left an empty glass and crumbs the following day ....and a thank you card :)

Something I noticed this year is that family and friends are not eating as much as they did. Many commented on that uncomfortable feeling when you eat too much and were determined not to be silly.  Maybe it also a fact that as we get older maybe we don't need as much food and we are more health conscious.  Anyway good time had by all!!

Well another New Years Eve and we have already celebrated by going out to lunch and will enjoy the rest of the evening tucked up by the fire with a bottle of Champagne.....perfect.

Hope you have an equally enjoyable time!!

Happy New Year!!!
