Here it is, Christmas Eve 2021. It has been quite a year, one way and another.
I am glad I took a bit of a break from blogging. I pulled back from other computer things at the same time, and have quite enjoyed my three weeks off-screen (well, mostly off-screen!).

It has been quite a busy time, sorting through old boxes and meeting up with old friends. This last week Son and I put up our Christmas decorations, along with a tiny tree.

The Christmas Cake was made and iced. I don’t normally ice fruit cake (it gets too sweet) but we had some bought packet icing (both royal icing and white icing) sitting in the cupboard from two years ago. It was way past its expiry date (September 2020!) but there is nothing wrong with it at all so it got used.
No fancy decorations on the cake though. I have been known to sometimes go to some effort to decorate the cake, but this year it will be eaten and enjoyed without anything fancy being added.

My wish is that you all have happy times together with your families over this holiday season.
Stay safe and be happy 😊
