A Day of Christmas Baking


Yesterday we girls enjoyed a day of baking.


Something we didn't take for granted this year.


But we enjoyed it to the full.


Bing Crosby in the background
singing "Let it Snow"


Cosy un-summery weather


Christmas cookies, same as every year.



Only this year the girls practically did it all themselves!
A big change from the stressful old days,
when my helpers were little.


We also made Christmas Cake and Crackle Cookies
and Gluten-free/Dairy-free cookies for me.


And let's zoom out a bit on the scene, shall we?


A new fridge, an unexpected necessity last week, 
as if the ceiling being cut out and Laura finishing Yr 6 wasn't enough for one day ....


... and the staircase.

Hopefully by next Christmas this season of building chaos
will be forgotten!
