this morning it was rainy so I made a start on some festive baking. I love making mincemeat as all the family love a mince pie. Right now all the fruit and spices are soaking in the fruit juice and alcohol, plumping up nicely. Tomorrow I'll cook this mixture and fill my special jars, which I reuse from year to year.

The flowers were for my mum in law as it's her birthday today. She seemed pleased with them.
Then there was just time for a quick lunch before mum came round and we went out for a drive. We stopped at a tea room and even sat inside. Mum's recently had her covid booster so we feel a bit more confident about mixing, but still try to be cautious.

Hello again, I'm happy to be back so soon. Thank you for reading and even commenting so thoughtfully on my post of yesterday.

.....I felt the urge to write a blog post, so I'm going with it. Sometimes I do miss blogging and it's nice to share the small joys with more words than feel appropriate on Instagram.
This morning I was ironing ( another rediscovered small joy now I have more time in my day.) It's an ideal job to do whilst waiting for my grocery delivery as I can be sure not to miss the knock at the door.
Maybe I shouldn't have planted any bulbs yet either as they are sprouting. Go back to sleep little beauties.
