The brevity of yesterday's post was entirely the fault of Mary Berry.
Let me put you in the picture... one week to go until Christmas, present shopping still not finished, presents that have been bought still not wrapped, local cards still not written or delivered, food to be organised and 20 people turning up at my house in the evening for our book club Christmas gathering. So what to I do... spend my day making a gingerbread house.
I couldn't help myself... and I blame Mary Berry for my insanity.
But it was worth it!
And it did make a lovely centerpiece at out party last night, where everyone contributed to lots of wonderful food and drink and several silly games. A great evening.
Now if you'll excuse me there is the little matter of shopping to finish so I'm off to Cambridge.
Thank you to everyone who is taking the time to read and comment on these advent posts... you are keeping me going! And if I don't have time to reply to you all individually I'm sure you'll understand that I'm probably busy making gingerbread houses or something else equally silly... but I do appreciate your support!
