I am so thankful that we have no places to go right now, and can just be home enjoying the snow and finishing off our preparations for Christmas Day. Mostly playing out in the garden and clearing up the paths this morning and lots of baking this afternoon. Tomorrow will hopefully be spent getting ready for the feast - doing as much in advance as possible, so we can all relax and enjoy the meal. This is likely to be the last one where my Mother will be home - Alzheimer's Disease is stealing more of her away all the time, and it looks likely that a care home could be a reality during the coming year. That's in the future though - right now we are all looking forward to spending the day together and ten of us will sit down to a traditional Christmas dinner.
There may even be some of this stollen cake left to have later on.
Sending warmest wishes to you all for a wonderful happy Christmas.
