.. a work in process.
I decided this morning that it was time to make the Christmas Cake. It was one of those things which for some unknown reason suddenly became urgent.
Unfortunately lots of hands didn't make light work. To the contrary it became quite stressful. Only got so far as chopping all the fruit and putting it in to soak. Hopefully will get so far as the cooking stage tomorrow.
Miles has done more works of art. Faces with eyes and noses. Some also had mouths and hair but they are buried somewhere under a mound of paper on the kitchen floor.
Discussed the more deep and meaningful aspects of the season with Nana today and have decided that we will have both a christian nativity scene and a pagan/nature oriented yule scene on the sideboard this year. Currently we don't actually have either and I'm hoping Hermione will join in making both with a little help.
