With only 76 shopping days left till Christmas I went out yesterday and got all the ingredients for my Christmas pudding!! Ha ha, all you people who think Christmas starts too early, you're gonna hate me for this one! I love it! I think the run up to Christmas can't start early enough......and why not, sure there is just so much to do and no point rushing it!!! :-)
I am now up to my ears in glace cherries and bottles of guinness! I love the whole process of making a pudding. Besides the actual mixing of ingredients (and wish making for the kids when they stir it!) I love preparing the pudding bowls and tieing them up with string and the boiling for 8 hours. But I particularly love the eating! I usually make enough pudding to get me to Easter!
I've made my Christmas present buying list already and have booked a shopping trip on the boat to Cheshire Oaks Outlets with the girls for the end of November. And there are actually two presents we plan on wrapping tomorrow but you'll have to allow me that much as they're for the Samaritans Purse Christmas Child appeal.
Anyway I was just having another one of those sleepless nights and thought I'd wreck your heads with this Christmas stuff......
