6 More Sleeps.......

I have been experimenting with lights inside this year.
The end of our dinning room gets very dark down the end so I thought
that I'd put some lights down there.
I think it looks O.K need to put a few more decorations up yet.
I was thinking that I would like to see every-ones Christmas Table all decorated up for Christmas Day. Every-one get there camera out and take photos to post after Christmas.
I couldn't wait till next week to start my Christmas cooking.
2 new recipes Hard caramels and Chocolate Mallow Fudge, I just hope they last until Christmas week.

    The sharing Christmas photos is such a good idea and I even bought a spare set of batteries so that I can post my photos!

  3. Thank you what a lovely award. Will do my bit soon I have a frantic day ahead which involves celaning, packing, wrapping gifts,colouring my hair etc etc etc

    I love the colour of your dining room!!!! It is so summery

  4. I love the look of your hard caramels. I've been making soft fudge but it's a bit too soft so I ended up coating it with white chocolate so it wasn't so sticky. Can you tell me where you got the recipe, or even email me at
