Eve of Christmas Eve

The shopping complete, the wrapping done (almost), and a well deserved and relaxing dinner with friends will kick off what shall be a glorious time of Happy Christmas.

I roasted a turkey breast last week to pick on while the final prep at work happened and today the carcass is merrily bubbling to make a big pot of turkey veg soup. With a big pot of soup in the house any comfort can be found and any tragedy surely averted!

The candles made earlier are all delivered but two along with cookie baskets.

My vintage english muffins in a loaf recipe (making two fat loaves) are in the oven and smelling wonderful, spicy turkey and apple 'sausage' is freezing off for use over the coming weekend.

I'll have photos of the finished skull mitts tomorrow along with the accompanying story on myself that so amused the knitters last night.

With a batch of Nigella's gingerbread tomorrow along with maybe chili and cheese bread it's shaping up to be a good one.

I hope that things at your house are divine and you are calm and smiling!!!! Remember the old adage "Keep Calm & Carry On!"
