The Puds Here!

Do you have little traditions and things that you do every Christmas that it just wouldn't be the same without?
Well apart from watching "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy Chase and the Carols each year, one of our families oldest and dearest friends (our God daughter's Mum) makes and delivers to us the most scrumptious Christmas Puddings. It is wrapped and be-ribboned so beautifully. We are so darn spoilt! So last night our pudding was once again delivered to us with love and friendship. Isn't it pretty?
Christmas would not be the same without this beautiful tradition. Heartfelt thanks Karen xxx
I have had the most wonderful time with my lovely friends in FHFS. A huge big hug and thanks to our two gorgeous "Queen Elves" Peg and Shez....what a duo!
This is Day 10 from the very generous Keryn....only the giftie under the tree to go.
It had been residing in my fridge because my chocolate detecting equipment alerted me to the fact that it contained said substance inside the cute and I know it is early but I must fess up to the fact that I have already sampled know quality control! Passed with flying colours!!! Thank you so much Keryn for all your spoiling xx
I would like to leave you with a beautiful Christmas Blessing. I wish you a Joyful and very Merry Christmas shared hopefully with those you love, for those of you who find this a difficult time because of loss and difficulty I wish you Peace in your reflections.

May you have the gladness of Christmas - which is Hope.
The spirit of Christmas - which is Peace
and the heart of Christmas - which is love.
         ...Ada V. Hendricks.
Stay safe.
Namaste and Blessings,
