Today has been just perfect. A lazy morning, spent watching the littlest member of our family run around the house and be thoroughly spoilt by our nearest and dearest. A long relaxed lunch – for which no oven was turned on, and no kitchen stress was encountered. An afternoon spent chatting over apple / ginger mocktails, followed by homemade semifreddo and stollen. A day spent in the company of family, and also being able to touch base with our loved ones further afield via more ‘modern’ means. I hope that you all had a splendid day – and found comfort in family, friends and food. For we certainly were lucky enough to. I would also like to say a big ‘thankyou’ for all your support during 2014, and I look forward to continuing this blog (starting with a full Christmas recap!) when I return in the New Year. Until then…stay safe and Happy Baking!
