“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
― Charles Dickens

Christmas is upon us! Or rather, it’s almost here. The Christmas feeling is just starting to creep in having done a few festive related bits this weekend and with just five days left of work, there is a definite feeling of the year coming to an end. Those who have been following the blog since it’s creation will have noticed that there was a distinct drop in activity this year. I can’t even explain why. I can only reason that I’ve picked up my phone to take a snap, more than I’ve picked up my actual camera. It’s not a bad thing, as at times I try and plan my shots a bit better, but I have missed the D-SLR. Lots has been going on however, so here here are a few previews…

I’ve started having a bit more of a presence on Instagram lately and my photos of the classic Chocolate Oreo Cheesecake Balls appeared to be well received. I first found the recipe on Southern Living.

I’ve tweaked it a little bit, just a few short-cuts to make it easier. Firstly, chill the blended Oreo/cream cheese mixture before you roll the balls out otherwise there will just be a huge oreo coloured mess. Secondly, melt less chocolate! You honestly don’t need as much as they are suggesting. The end result seems to go down well with those who love sweet treats…

She’s had her twice yearly groom at the pooch parlour, and boy was she grumpy. But she came home a changed woman, having lost lost of her fluffy bits (elbows and trousers) and with less hairy ears. That’s the dog we’re talking about…

She has been very receptive towards wearing her festive bits and pieces and hasn’t moaned once (yet.)


The Decorations…

The tree is up, the festive bits are planted, the house is well and truly on its way to being full of festive cheer (hah!) and so is my parents, where we also worked hard to get everything ready for the season. Here are some snapshots…and that’s it for now, bring on annual leave and more time for photography!

7th May – voting day. And aside from voting I mostly spent it working and then playing with the dogs in the garden. Buddy came to visit for a while and did some pro posing, something he never used to do for me! The flowers are all in bloom and the garden is starting to look wonderful…

Then Buddy taught Maisy how to pose and we tried to get them to pose together – but it didn’t quite work out…

7Aside from today though, I have been taking photos and sharing them on Facebook but just haven’t had the time to blog. I’ve been experimenting with ‘healthy’ cake. Or Healthier cake anyway. Cake made with fat free yoghurt instead of butter and sweetener instead of sugar…

And then I tried my hand at working with jelly for some ‘healthier’ type puddings. It sort of worked out once I ditched the yoghurt (pictured below) and stopped freezing it like a weirdo…
