November’s here and so is the fog! You can have a nice sunny day and then this is the result here in Derbyshire! Where we are is a valley and so the fog stays all day and you can drive two miles down the road and its bright sunshine!
I managed to get quickly decorated for Halloween on Saturday, and from 5.00pm it was non-stop opening the door to all the Trick or Treaters! DH did all the opening as normally if Halloween is in the week he is not home. A lot of the children know him from Carnival and he did manage to scare a few of the older ones!!!!!!
Yesterday and today I have been busy getting the Christmas Cakes made and the Christmas pudding mixture ready for steaming. There is a fourth cake but that is already wrapped up and in a tin!!! It has been really hectic. Just now need to make 60 mince pies, 100 Christmas cookies and my special recipe Brandy truffles!!!!! I will hopefully get some of these done next weekend.
Treacle has not left my side over the two days I have been baking and I just now have to keep the Boys off the cakes and I will be okay!
To add to the “Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas” Movies 24 became Christmas 24 on November 1st! I will be nagged again by Youngest to get the Christmas music out! I have contacted my good friend Jayne as we usually have a Girls day out to Nottingham for some Christmas Shopping, to arrange a date!!!!
Hope your Monday is marvelous.
