|Frangipane mince pies|
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year......
|Reindeer - ready for action|
Today I put together the various home-made items that I have produced as gifts for family and friends – Cranberry vodka, Cinnamon and apple room fresheners, pink macaroons, Christmas cakes for one and, I didn’t forget the pets, carrot, cheese and parsley bone-shaped biscuits.
|Who's a good boy then!|
We then spent a happy hour or two this morning delivering our seasonal goodies – Jasper (a retriever) especially enjoyed his early present - before finally returning home to produce my ‘Bake ahead Christmas mince pies’.
|Mince pies ready for the oven|
There'll be much mistletoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year”
