So here we are again Wafflers, Christmas Eve. I don’t know about you but I’m all set and ready for Christmas.
Today I made the wreath above, just a wreath ring from Hobbycraft with bits from my garden stuck in. There’s no glue involved. It all gets thrown away afterwards and I start again next year.
My Mum had her Christmas socks on this morning. Christmas robins.
She was in a really good mood today and excited that both me and my Dad are going to visit her tomorrow.
David has done a spreadsheet for the cooking timings of Xmas dinner… 🤣🤣 as he will be starting off the cooking whilst my Dad and I are at the care home. It made me laugh that he put “as required” in the drinks column.
All that remains now is for me to make the brandy butter. This is to go with my homemade Christmas pudding. Made to the ancient secret family recipe, the pudding not the brandy butter. Not sure where it originated from exactly or how far back it goes but it certainly came from my Grandma to my aunt to my sister to me… I think my nephew Arthur may be next.
Here’s the stuff for the brandy butter.. Delia Smith’s recipe.
So I’d better get my pinny on as it’s nearly wine and dinner o’clock.
I wish you all a wonderful, joyous Christmas and thank you all for your support in this challenging year, and quite frankly, just listening to my Waffle! Xx
