Merry Christmas

I have Christmas songs swirling around my head.

(Except for right now, because Mr Bite is playing The Smiths. They make a nice contrast to Christmas tunes.)

Christmas presents are wrapped and ready to go.

The weather forecast for Christmas day is sitting happily around 30'C (~85'F).

I have left my office(s) for the final time in 2011!


I have decided what dishes to make for Christmas day. And bought the ingredients.

(The ingredients aren't mince pies, but mince pies [not for me - ick] were easier to photograph.)

The house is half cleaned.

Our kitchen is full of chocolate and sweet food.

I think it must be time for Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, however you spend it, 
and if you celebrate Christmas, a wonderful Christmas.


  1. Merry Christmas Kari! Your chocolates look gorgeous. I hope you have a relaxing time off work and an enjoyable celebration with your family. I will look forward to hearing about the food you cook.

  2. Merry Christmas Kari,
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of Christmas cheer too.

  3. Merry merry beautiful Christmas, you wonderful creature you! Many hugs, dear Kari xo

  4. Merry christmas - enjoy your break - I am jealous of your presents being all wrapped - I made an effort to start mine last night but tonight was too busy with baking and a small child who wouldn't sleep so tomorrow I will have to get to it - as well as some baking. I am very curious about what you will be making for christmas - hope you will share!

  5. Thank you Mel - the same to you :)

  6. Thank you Shaheen (and I hope your Scottish weather doesn't interfere with your Christmas plans!).

  7. Many hugs back, darling Hannah :)
