mincepies and mayhem | November 25, 2008

Today I was very domesticated,baked mincepies and other christmas goodies,sorted out the decorations checked for breakages that batteries and bulbs ok.

Have sorted out clothes and toys that have been outgrown ready to drop off at the charity shop,in the economic climate I am unable to give as much to charity as id like so this is my way of doing my bit,so off they will go to help the aged.

I’m trying to have a christmas that embrases the true spiritual reason for the festivities,without all the commercial hoopla,we are making table decorations and tree decorations,with foliage and pine cones that we found on the floor of the chase (not a forest as wasn’t owned by the king so called chase or so my daughter tells me) either way acres upon acres of trees and deer 20mins walk or 3minutes by car,from my house and is exceptionally pretty this time of year.



  1. A hot mince pie is great with a cup of tea!
    Good for you for trying to have what I call a proper Christmas, and one which I’m sure you’ll enjoy just as much or even more.
    Sounds like a lovely area. xx

  4. How lovely to have a forest so near you! And you are already decorating! I love the piney smell of a real Christmas tree. But, alas, buying one has gotten quite expensive. So several years ago, my roomie inherited her parents’ artificial tree. And when it fell apart (well, it was already 25 years old or so), we got another artificial tree. Not as fragrant, to be sure, but we still enjoy it.
