Well, that’s Christmas done and dusted for another year! We’ve spent the last few days eating, playing board games, eating, watching movies and eating. On Christmas day we slept in, then I made a batch of scones for breakfast which we ate while still warm, with jam and cream. We unwrapped our tiny bundle of gifts then spent the rest of the morning playing scrabble and cards outside in the sunshine. We set the table with handmade candles left over from this gorgeous wedding and the scrappy doily table runner I made for Handmade Christmas, then I made a delicious blue cheese and pear tart with walnut crust (based on this recipe), which we had with baked veggies for lunch. In the afternoon we watched Love Actually and ate trifle for dessert. It was quite lovely really. Low key and lovely.
I hope you all had a peachy Christmas. I can’t quite believe it is almost the beginning of a brand new year! Oh 2012, where did you go!?
