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!!
I love books, baking and my boyfriend, and love to write about the first two. I particular love "forgotten" books, books brought out of obscurity by republication and those still languishing in obscurity. I'm currently reading my way through all of the Virago Modern Classics, but taking in other books along the way.
