This is my first White Christmas! And oh, it's exciting. Very exciting.
It's snowed on and off all week, making festive preparations extremely festive. This just isn't normal round here, and that makes it even more great.
Sadly, we did have to cancel our holiday plans. Our van couldn't even get out of our street, so driving 500 miles to the far north of Scotland we thought might be a bit ambitious... But you know what? Now we've decided to stay at home, it's fun. Lots of fun.
There's been lots of decorating, a bit of visiting, plenty of baking, and huge amounts of sewing. We're just about ready. Of course, there's bits of presents that will need finishing off tomorrow. And the cake isn't iced. And I haven't even finished half of the presents for people i won't see for a couple of weeks.
But the important things are done, and we're just settling down to watch Scrooge with a hot chocolate.
