“Keep Calm
And
Bake Cookies”

Wind and rain has attacked most of the UK today. Reports are that one person has been killed in a freak hailstorm, the South Coast is being lashed with rain and floods and the North of the country is seeing a complete whiteout with Snow…

There were shortbread stars and gingerbread man – the Oranges from yesterday are no longer making the house smell Christmassy so this was a great replacement. I’m not sure what we can do on the orange thing – any suggestions to prolonging the beautiful smell would be gratefully received!

“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”
― Roy L. Smith

It seemed fitting that I should save the decorations and the general Christmas spirit in the house until today.

We also have a real tree, which spikes me when I try and check what my presents might be! But yes, I love the smell of Christmas Trees even though they make me sneeze, this one this year has dropped a lot of branches and needles already. I don’t think it’ll last much longer!

The fireplace is a huge focal point of the sitting room. The stockings hang there, the swag of lights sit nicely above the fireplace and the reindeer on the top are candle holders that glow perfectly in the evenings – it’s fantastic.
