We sorted out a Christmas Tree today.
I know it's terribly early....too early for us really (we don't usually embark on the annual pine tree bunfight until the 14th of December or so) BUT as we have a friend visiting next weekend, we thought we would get the whole shebang over with and make the place look all festive for when our guest arrives.....
Last night we called down to Dyserth for a return meal with the Rector.
It was an impressive meal that was finished off with a cracking homemade Lemon Meringue Pie.
If the Rector does not sweep the board at next year's Cookery Classes of the Trelawnyd Flower Show, well then Mary Berry is a kitchen dunce transvestite!
I think vicar's must always make good pastry cooks..... it's all that time dipping their hands in that cold font water me thinks.
Tonight we are off to my sister-in-laws home up in the hills. The family is gathering to mark the anniversary of my brother's death. We will raise a glass of champagne to him, let off a whole load of balloons and will share a hotpot supper.
I cannot believe it has been a year since he died.
It's a truism
The older you get,
the quicker time goes.
