Welcome to my new followers Frugaldom, Jossie and Plumes.
What a damp, dark and depressing sort of day. We are now sitting in the front of the wood burner, already lit some 2 hours as it is so cold. I am busy knitting (such a slow knitter) trying to finish off a final Christmas present. Made the mistake of ironing the first one and it not only flattened it but made it too big. I am trying to finish the second one before re-knitting the first.
The cake has had its marzipan put on yesterday and will only have 2 days to dry out as I want to ice it Saturday. Don't normally bother with either but felt like being different this year. I was though just about to brush it with sieved and melted marmalade when I remembered Dan saying about turning it over. I covered the top first with a disc measured to the correct size, then rolled out a long thin oblong for the sides and lightly pinched them together. As I am going to make some royal icing, it will be fine.
Got to face the dentist tomorrow for a filling. The only problem is, the X-Ray is showing a hole in one tooth and the pain is 2 teeth away. I know pain can track but that seems a little too far. Will get him to double check before he freezes me. Hope he does the right one, don't fancy being a pain over Christmas. It is super sensitive at the moment, so anything, hot cold or sweet plays merry havoc with it.
I have a list for each day so I can get done what needs doing but as soon as one thing is crossed off, another one gets added. Ah well, will get there in the end.
Looking forward to DS. and FDiL. coming, who both sound a little stressed. Hope a few days away will help them both relax and chill out. This will be our first Christmas with two dogs in the house, should be interesting!
