The End. (of last year)

From September onwards life gets very busy. Craft markets and custom orders and a very busy time in my day job and my blog has been rather neglected… If my camera is to be believed I didn’t really do anything but work in November, but it has a few hints of life in December 2015.

In the run up to Christmas there was plenty of baking…

..and the gingerbread Bath Abbey I made for work was quite a hit. Our photographer Rob Wicks of EatPictures took this fantastic shot of in situ with the real abbey behind it.

In no time at all the Christmas cookery classes were over and Christmas was upon us. We decorated inside and out.

Mark drove over to St Arvans to pick up my mum while I cooked on Christmas morning – my first vegetarian Christmas lunch, with huge thanks to Lydia, Helen and Demuths for some fantastic recipes – my first ever raised pies were a big success. Mind you, I did have to cook turkey too for our lovely neighbour… Then Mark’s parents and brother came over to eat, play trivia games and look silly as elves!

Luckily there was enough dry weather to get outside and get some fresh air…at Westonbirt Arboretum…

…and Lacock Abbey…
