A Santa Christmas Cake

We have only five days to go, and a son who is slightly less enthusiastic about cake decorating than he used to be. A simple, not too time consuming design was therefore the order of the day for this years Christmas Cake. To be fair, I think that’s actually the secret to success when it...

Queenswood Arboretum

Having not been out anywhere for about 9 months, there was quite a bit of excitement at the weekend. We haven’t seen any family at all this year, but that would change.
