What I've been up to.

My writing is finished for the year, and I have been concentrating on Christmas. At present all the gifts are finalised...Phew... And I have finally, finally got the tree up.

Cooking. It's been a family tradition for to cook a date pudding. My grandmother's recipe. So I have bought the calico and I've just made a bag. I thought I had all the ingredients but I need some sherry. Okay, so the pudding and Christmas cake is postponed to another day.

I'm not doing the traditional hot meal though. It will be ham, prawns, lobster... all seafood which I totally love.

I remember the days when we dived for the lobbies...we use to have up to ten or more for Christmas day... it was so common to have lobster, now the price they charge makes me feel like jumping in the ocean and getting my own. But now, one has to have a licence... and whatever else just to keep lobby traps.

Remind me not to come to your house for Christmas. I'd be swollen all over the place. But enjoy my darling - you deserve the best from life.
