The nights are drawing in, the days are getting more grey and dreary, summer seems so long ago *sobs*
But Christmas is coming, and there’s still lots that I love about autumn and winter – going for walks all tucked up with a woolly hat, scarf and gloves with just your nose poking out, kicking up the leaves (no matter how old I get, it’s still my favourite), drawing the curtains and getting comfy on the sofa with a hot chocolate and good film, the smell of home fires burning in our village and my nephew getting excited about Father Christmas. Love it!
After a couple of weeks of dining out and pastry classes, it was finally time to get back in the kitchen for a good ol’ bake up this weekend. I’ve been planning my festive baking and wanted to try things out before I bake in earnest for gifts. Don’t worry they’ll be appearing on here with plenty of time to get everything sorted for present-swapping.
