Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post 😊 Striking can raise a lot of conflicting feelings for some people. Hopefully we won't need to do it again.
As someone pointed out on my FB feed this morning it's only 4 weeks until Christmas 😱 How did that happen? Better get started then!
We keep Christmas low key in my family now, for many reasons. Presents are practical and food is simple but traditional. I picked up a packet of GF stuffing mix earlier this week as it's in short supply nearer the day. You just can't beat a Paxo mix. I tried a new one last year that I didn't really like but unfortunately I bought a kilo of it 😂 I've almost finished it now!
I got my favourite GF sausages slightly reduced so they'll be skinned and made into sausage stuffing. These are in the freezer now. If I can get a decent priced turkey crown we'll have a turkey dinner but last year I just bought a chicken which is much cheaper. To be honest it's all the trimmings that make the dinner great!
Yesterday my class was given some leftover fruit to have as an afternoon snack. I have a wee one with an orange allergy so these didn't get used. I'm going to juice them and freeze the juice to use in my Christmas trifle. My DIL is a pescatarian so I'll use it with vege gel to make the jelly for the bottom layer.
On the present front, I bought some bottles of Prosecco that was on offer in Sainsbury's. I chose this one mainly because the bottle was pretty!!😂 I've ordered some bottle lights so the recipients can make a bottle lamp once they've drunk the contents! 🍷
Just a few things so far but I feel I've made a start!
P.S. Lots of viewers have been to the flat but no offers yet 🤞
