Boxing Day bliss......or should I say recovery!

It's been hectic!
It's been mad! 

 Conveyor belt baking and knitting....
Christmas Eve Supper for nine, my boys' uncontained joy, Christmas Day out with family, presents which deserve their own post, comsumption of a 'loch' of wine (worried I'll soon be peeing red!), my own body weight in meat and chocolate (already!?!?), Doctor Who and a couple of weeks worth of lack of sleep.  Aah Christmas............
So by Boxing Day all I craved was a sit down, daydreams of turkey and stuffing sandwiches and knitting without deadlines!

Both bliss and recovery I think!!



  1. oh that does look bliss! I finished my last Christmas yesterday so today I intend not to move off the couch and eat sweeties! x

  2. I can't believe I've only just discovered your blog! Better late than never I suppose!
    Hope you had a good christmas, those cakes look delicious. :)
    Thank you for the mention all those months ago. Your corsage looks lovely.

  3. Ooh I love your knitting!!! Aren't you clever!! And all those cakes - they are so pretty! Hope you're having a relaxing Christmas. xxx

  4. Hello Jessica!!
    Tanya, I agree, I felt very clever over those stockings for the teachers and was so looking forward to giving them BUT the snow caused school to close on the morn of the last day (about five minutes after I took the photo)so we were a little gutted. My boys had worked so hard on that shortbread.
    I am still eating those gorgeous cakes, I do love them. If you need to you can find them in Nigella's Domestic Goddess book.

  5. love your stockings and the look of those cakes! Have a lovely new years eve tomorrow! xxx

  6. OOOhhhhh cupcakes!

I love to hear from all you interesting folks out there so don't be shy.
Had to put the annoying word verification back on as the spam was getting silly. Forgive me! Ali
