Oops. I can't show you what Daughter 2 gave us this morning because I forgot to take a photo of it. Or at least, I thought I had taken one. But my phone camera doesn't seem to agree. Anyway, it's too late because she gave us chocolate reindeer lollipops and we ate them. So this is our little gift to her: a frame with a photo of the offspring and their husbands/wife at Son's wedding.
Instead of chocolate reindeer, then, I give you a photo of something that I found today in Marks and Spencer's vegetarian aisle: creamy Brussels sprouts with bacon lardons and chestnuts. Nearly, M & S, but not quite.
And a picture of my Christmas cake. Every year I think I might make a big effort and do something really artistic. And then I think - nah. Too much else to do, for example getting better at "We Three Kings of Orient Are" before my piano lesson tomorrow. It's quite easy to start off with but becomes more tricky later on. Much like life itself.
