Just a few more days and calm will be restored. We have had a busy time and two more things to enjoy. To night is Shirley's drinks party, I shall love going to her house because it is filled with wonderful things to look at. Some waiting to go on her ebay site, so only to enjoy for a few hours,but there are lots of other joys to see and nice people to meet.Then tomorrow we will have friends here for the evening.I'm hoping everyone isn't caroled out because one friend promises to bring her guitar so we can sing some. I,ve made mincepies,sausage rolls and cornish pasties so far.Thats not quite true I made a fruit cake but something went wrong and its very strange. I think I must have used the wrong flour. Still maybe it will heat up for future puddings! Friends are bringing other delights. These are my last pictures of my decorations. Every year I buy one new special item to hang among the silk flowers that I have twisted round the light fitting, this year it 's a fairy sitting on a swing,but there are glass birds, pretty glass heart decorations and a crystal bell.
