I feel so very Christmasy!! If you haven’t caught the ‘bug’ yet, have a look at my gorgeous gingerbread village and you’ll feel festive instantly too.
My beautiful mother made them all. She was visiting us and stayed for three weeks, much of which she spent cutting and baking and glueing and decorating.
She, my mum that is, is so very very lovely. I mentioned to her that I would love a gingerbread village and she set to it right away.
I so wish that we had space in the house that I could just keep my village as it is.
As it is, one of the houses will go to my mother-in-law’s, another will go to Max’s school. I’m KEEPING THE REST!!!
Or we could just eat on our knees on the couch until after Christmas and keep the table for the houses!! Somehow I don’t think the others would like the idea. Though I think it’s a good one!!
I wonder when we should start putting the rest of the decorations up. And the tree? Hmm… Sooner the better I think.
It’s meant to snow in the second half of the week. That’s very festive too, isn’t it? I really really don’t like driving on snow/ice, so that part I’m not looking forward to, but winter is beautiful when it’s snowy.
I’ve bought all the presents already too. Most of them are wrapped. I’m too good. I know! 😉
So, do you feel festive yet?
Worst comes to worst you could always go to a shopping centre and listen to the Christmas music in every shop!
Go on. Get your baking tray out and start making a house! I’ll write the recipe down later. I’m late for Max’s school pick up so must dash.
ps: I love my mum
