Tree Trimming


Wal and I decorated the tree this morning, it’s still missing the handmade decorations.  I’ll be adding those to the tree later this week. 

Wal really appreciated Squidges help straightening the tree.

Also her Madrinha wanted to know if Squidge was enjoying her new CPD.  I’ll show it to her in pictures.

Later on in the day Wal and I were sitting around chatting about grocery shopping and what we would be having for dinner this week.  Ya know basically making our grocery list.  We were interrupted by Squidge ‘talking’ to us.

I think she was trying to tell us she was ready to go to Sainsbury’s

I also made some walnut cookies.  The cookies will be making their way to some fellow American expats.  It felt good to be in the kitchen again.  I’ve been busy writing papers and studying for my final exam and haven’t had time to bake/craft.  My last class is Tuesday and then I’ll be furiously trying to get everything done before xmas!!
