The Festive Season
It's blustery out, with a bit of snow and a lot of wind. We went to see The Hobbit, and when we came out of the theatre it was storming. The same thing happened last week after Skyfall. Coincidence? I think not. All skiiers should apply to me, with theatre tickets.
We're approaching being ready for Christmas, with the tree up and decorated, and cleaning happening.
I have a few more things to produce in "Santa's Workshop", and a couple of things to bake, including the annual attempt to make meatless meat pie for the Veggie. We are going to to make Nigel Slater's nut loaf instead of tofu loaf, just for a change. It looked terrific in the "12 Tastes of Christmas" show we watched this week. We may make the Gammon for Boxing Day as well.
This year's multi gifts include Christmas fabric trivets and small boxy bags, with a strap I invented myself (to save trouble), I am having fun matching insides to outsides, and I have enough zippers to make quite a few before I have to invest at the fabric store.
Speaking of which, I work tomorrow, and on Saturday, but then I have 3 days off in a row so we can go to Halifax and take Katie back. As our friendly neighbourhood parasitologist would say, "Fleas Navidad!"
