I have done the marzipan layer on daughters cake, our cake had another drink of brandy, as usual I used the best brandy for the cake, poor hubby shakes his head every year, but he does love my Christmas cake.
Another great book, this being my 73rd book read this year, as always with this author, I loved this story line, it was very different, an interesting look on how we can change if things around us change.
It's very comfortable to have old friends out this season, George loves Rudolf and has chewed his ear, I have loads of these handmade by me cushions of all sizes.
My Lidi Amaryllis is growing well, but only leaves, last years bulb has only produced leaves this year, my expensive bulb is simply not growing, probably won't have any flowers this season.
My computer is fixed, not cheap, but he retrieved all my data, which I am very pleased with, I have backed up a couple of things, one being my stash list, which I started in 2015.
I don't have much Christmas spirt, to be honest I am struggling, I know I'm not alone, I think this festive season is going to be hard, with the announcement of so many retail shops, within just 2 groups to be in administration, with the huge number of people who already have lost their jobs, so many people facing a bleak future, most of our companies survive each year on a good Christmas season, which is gone before it could start, how can it be a merry time. I am also worried about a personal issue, one which will effect every bit of our lives but one I can't control, it mad to be worried, but it's how I am, December has not had a good start.
