It's been a mild , grey day today. Nothing else to say about the weather. I've spent most of the day in the kitchen, baking and cleaning. As it's nearly Christmas I'm going into overdrive on the biscuit front. The 2 flavour biscuits were made according to the recipe with the rabbits being made from the extra. The small ones with the scribble of icing were a bit of an adaption and are full of chopped nuts. While the biscuits were baking I did some extra cleaning in the kitchen, washing down shelves and tiling. I also boiled up another large saucepan of swedes and carrots to mash up and put in the freezer. I did try out a craft idea I'd come up with, making little hedgehogs from tiny pine cones and some Fymo. Unfortunately that idea didn't work out too well, they looked more like zombie hedgehogs but really not very much like hedgehogs so they went in the bin.
During the morning our neighbour's son came around on a quad bike to deliver a card and a bright poinsettia which now sits on the kitchen mantelpiece.
