Peanut butter cups

My daughter and I did some cooking today. We thought we would try Nigellas peanut butter cups as my hubby loves the Reese's ones. So we got out the Nigella Christmas book and started cooking. When I say cooking all that needed to be done was to melt the chocolate.

We were busy making the house look festive at the weekend. We baked mince pies and listened to Christmas music. I can't believe we are only a few days away from the big event. Ive got all the pressies wrapped and sorted. I'm going to do Christmas crafts with the children I mind this week so they will have a little bag of things to take home on Friday.

This is our tree. Its hard to get a good photo. The children decorated it with things we have collected over the years and little bits and bobs they have made.

Gingerbread house

I'm at home today as my daughter is unwell and feeling sick. Ive put on some Christmas music and got cracking with my gingerbread house. Its really got me into the Christmas spirit.
I made the house using a kit i purchased at Costco, Ive used many kits but its is by far the best.
