At home today


Plenty of seasonal activity going on here, with a new face appearing amongst the old favourites.




This little chap joined us in the summer, from a market in Yalta.  We don’t generally buy souvenirs as such, but we thought he’d make a pleasing addition to our Christmas collection and he brought a smile to our faces as we opened up the Christmas box this morning.




The other activity was in the kitchen, where a plate of finger food is required for this evening’s WI meeting.  As a change from mince pies and chocolate truffles, I made gingerbread, which I then cut into house shapes with liquorice chimneys.  Sprinkled with “snow”, they make a bite-size village and yes, of course, they’re twinkling!
