I Braved the Crowds!


Six days to go and I actually braved the crowds of shoppers today to get the fresh fruit and vegetables we will need for the Big Day.  I first had to return something and thought it would be a mad crush when in fact there was hardly anyone there!  The same goes for the supermarket, there were people shopping but it was not heaving!  So in relative calm I got what I needed.  The weather has not been too bad either today and the fog has gone which was a relief as DH was trolling around the countryside visiting customers.

In fact I managed to get quite a few errands completed today including filling the Jeep up with fuel and getting it washed!


I think it is getting all too much for Treacle.  This is how I found her this morning at 7.30am after my bath! Completely fast asleep and snuggled. She had gotten up with DH at 5.00am and been out and had breakfast and as soon as he left she came back upstairs, onto our bed and settled down for her morning snooze!


Tomorrow I will be icing the Christmas Cake and it will look very much the same as this!!!  I always do a snow scene as I can never get the icing completely smooth to do anything else.  My Grandma who taught me to bake and sew was able to get perfectly smooth icing but unfortunately I did not inherit her skills in that regard.  I got a huge basket of ironing done today as well and will be keeping on top of that this week to avoid a massive pile of ironing at the end of the week.  I have a bit of work to do also but then may go and play in the sewing room for a while.

I hope all of your preparations are going well.

Christmas Hugs, Susie xx

    Yay for you having an easy time in the shops!! My Youngest flew in this afternoon with my 5 month old grandson…of course, after dinner we needed to go to the grocery. Mercy, it was a mad house!! That’s why shopping during the day when everyone else is working is so much better. Hopefully I got everything I need until next week cuz I don’t want to go again before Christmas. All my gifts are wrapped…does that count?? Enjoy this week as we get closer to a Merry Christmas!

    Thank goodness you were able to shop in peace! The shoppers must be saving the grocery store for another day! The same thing happened at my grocery store. It was wonderful☺ You are such a hoot, Treacle!
