Preparing for Christmas 2011
Ha - did you think I'd forgotten about Christmas? Well, it's never too early to start preparing, and the sales are a great opportunity. I have already bought two silver Christmas trees for work next year, and then I spotted this in Oxfam in the sales:
So, that is what I have been doing with my morning off this morning (it's very frustrating - I wanted to bake but Ken is still eating up his gingerbread house and under frugality of baking, I am supposed to wait until he has finished that before making something else - which is frustrating as the February Good Food Magazine had a fantastic cookie recipe that would have used up loads of the odds and ends from my cupboards)
It now goes in a light place at room temperature for 2-3 weeks, then in the fridge for 6-10. Christmas trees are v. difficult to propogate so it is lucky that the kit contains several chances! Fingers crossed that I'll have a mini tree by Christmas!!
