Morning and how are you today?
Another grey, wet and windy day here in the North of Scotland, perfect crafting weather, staying in the warm. I'm at work again today, another short shift then that is me till next week. Lots of deals starting tomorrow in M and S for the Black Friday weekend, including a dine in which you can bump up to £20 and have a bottle of champagne. We have half price biscuits and sweeties and discounts on other items too. I think it's going to be busy!
Back to today and I thought I'd have a little crafty interlude and have a wee baking session instead. I finally made my Christmas cakes on Monday and as I mentioned I made two smaller cakes rather than one huge one.
Well they smell good and look good but I guess the proof will be in the eating. At the moment they're wrapped in foil as I spend the next couple of weeks feeding them brandy.
(I wish I was a Christmas cake!)
Nomm, nomm. It's a shame I've got to wait till I've decorated it!
Now do you have cheese with your Christmas cake? We were talking about it at work earlier in the week and I get the impression that my colleagues think I'm a little strange. I am originally from the North of England and we always serve Christmas cake with a chunk of Wensleydale cheese. When I mentioned this my colleagues screwed up their noses and made funny noises expressing their dislike of the idea. Is it a Northern English tradition?
What do you serve your Christmas cake with?
I'd love to know I'm not the only strange one out there.
That's all from me today enjoy your "hump" day, I'm away into work to see what this week's dine in will bring.
There's no wonder I can't lose weight, I just love food!
More from me tomorrow.
