Nearly There

I am having a quick sit down after lunch collecting my thoughts as to what still needs to be done. The advent candle tells us that Christmas Day is nearly here even if my older daughter didn't realise it was Christmas Eve when she got up.

The snowman and his snowdog are on the cake.

The decorations are all up including a few additions. These retro ones which remind me of those concertina streamers.

A little memento from our visit to Highgrove.

Then some old favourites.

The presents are under the tree.

With secrets hidden within.

It looks like we are getting there! So on with the cooking.


  1. Your decs are lovely. I liked the Prince of Wales Feathers on the horse! Have a really lovely time. Hope you get to put your feet up at some stage in the proceedings. Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog, and for answering my various random emails about pickling, preserving, NT properties and any other nonsense beginning with "P". All very much appreciated. x

    1. It's a pleasure to swop ideas with you.

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas with your lovely family. Love the tree decorations, I like an eclectic mix! My daughter was even excited about Christmas Eve 'eve'!

    1. Christmas Eve is I think quite a special day.

  3. Your decorations and cake look lovely. Sadly I was really busy in the run up to Christmas so our own decorations are somewhat lacking this year. I'm having a late Christmas gathering so I will make effort then. I like Christmas eve too, its full of anticipation and traditions.
