Christmas is a Coming!

Whether you are the person who embraces the Holiday Season or the person who sticks their head in the sand and ignores it, Christmas is coming!  “Christmas 24” has started on the TV with Christmas films 24/7, the childrens’ channels have been pushing Toy Adverts since June and The Famous Grouse Whiskey is back on TV getting you to try and buy their bottles!

Here is our Christmas cake in its tin, having just “fed” it with quite a bit of Brandy!

Here are the Christmas puddings in their raw state before steaming both of them for eight hours.  The first one is just about finished and I will steam the second one tomorrow.

All wrapped and ready for the steamer.

I have come up with a Christmas planner, based upon how I tackle Christmas, for you and hopefully I will be able to get that up on the web to give you some suggestions you may, or may not, wish to follow!!!!

They are still forecasting snow, possibly as early as next week (!) but as I said yesterday I will believe it when I see it!

This is the last time we had lots and lots of snow in 2010.  Treacle is stood on the top step leading into the garden and covered in snow.  Since then we really have not had the same amount, but you never know this year may be the year!

I hope you are having a Thrilling Tuesday.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Your Christmas cake looks soooooooo yummy, Miss Susie! I wish I could snitch a piece of it ☺
    I love snow but not in October or November. It’s gotta wait until December at the earliest!

    I’m looking forward to Christmas as at least 2 of my 3 girls will be here. But I certainly don’t start baking for it yet!! I have never had or seen Christmas pudding…what’s in it? What’s in your cake that you have to feed it Brandy?? I guess I need to plan a visit to England during the Christmas season some year so I can experience it in all its glory!
