Christmas Eve all day.

Happy Christmas to myself. I have been trying to get hold of this book for a while, but have never seen a copy I could afford before, I found it on a website this weekend and was very surprised that it turned up this afternoon, even more surprised when I opened it to see the slightly faded signature in it.

I was generally tidying up and finishing off at work, I slipped a plate and then blasted it with the heat gun so that I could turn it before I left today. I handled those three big jugs, a couple are slightly weird looking but I can’t put my finger on why that is. I also (smug here, very smug) weighed out all my trailing slips and left them to soak down over Christmas so they’ll be at fine sieving state when I get back. What a master plan.

Then I came home to bake mincepies. Before. . .

After. . . with marzipan toasted on top.

Mmmmmerry Christmas everyone, I hope you all have a lovely day. Best wishes, x
