As if flat renovation and Christmas weren’t both stressful enough as it is, we decided not only to have a tiny xmas tea party, but I ended up deciding that I was going to bake something that I’d never baked before either… what a good idea(!)
Add to that the fact that I had to build various pieces of furniture and try to find a hiding places for a bunch of boxes that contain nothing more than useless cables (I’ve tried throwing them out… Olly thinks they’ll be useful one day…). I almost had to hit the mulled wine early just steady my nerves.
But it all worked out beautifully, and a ton of snow didn’t stop our dedicated friends from trekking over. What a gang!!
Hope this doesn’t kill our slightly delicate lawn…?
