Well, as I had some extra time on my hands over the isolated festive season (no complaints about the company of dear Robert, but we had anticipated seeing lots more family before we were placed in Tier 4), I have been playing around with my blog. Essentially, I chose a different theme, and I feel … Continue reading Changes To My Blog
Month: Dec 2020
I was very pleased at the enormous selection of songs I came up with today in response to the Song Lyric Sunday theme. Despite being rather busy I have to admit, I made time to pick one song. In fact the song I have chosen is one I have often heard on the radio without … Continue reading I Gotta Get One Little Taste
Caramel is hosting CARAMEL'S COCKTAIL CLUB. She has asked us to post a photo of what we are eating today. Robert and I decided to make a start on our feasting early with some Nutcracker Cheesecake - think chocolate, hazelnuts, gold dusted topping - does it say Marks & Spencers to you? Well, you are … Continue reading Nutcracker Cheesecake
Robert and I have had to cancel our plans for the holidays now we are in Tier 4. But we will be dropping in for a virtual party on Friday at Caramel's Cocktail Club. Check out her post below!
I never really hang too much importance on the official date that marks the start of a season. It has felt like winter for the past few weeks.

She has had that box for a long time. Nothing was going to possess me to … Continue reading Barely Burnt Basque Cheesecake
Today's Song Lyric Sunday is shaping up to be a great selection of songs - did you like that? Yes Jim has given us a list of shapes to choose from. I have chosen square. This track will always get my foot tapping. I am trying to recall which movie(s) it has been used in. … Continue reading It’s Hip To Be Square
When I was a teenager I discovered the joys of printed tights. My mother wanted us to dress in clothes that were not going to get us into too much trouble - quite right too mum - and although some of my schoolmates hiked their skirts up or wore tight or revealing tops, I was … Continue reading My Sensational Stockings
Usually I would be making my own mulled wine and baking my own mince pies. But we are not having guests due to being in Tier 3 social distancing restrictions. So, as it is just Roberts and I (Wills has gone to stay with his parents now that university is on a break), we are … Continue reading Not Just Mulled Wine, M&S Mulled Wine
