On Saturday I got my Christmas cake iced, and we had the first slices of it yesterday. I wanted a simple decor on the cake so just made some white hollies and then brushed the icing with some edible glitter powder. I need to get a photo of a slice of the cake and all it's fruity yumminess!
As forecast, we had some heavy snow again yesterday. It was nice to go out walking in the soft new snow. After about 10 days without any snow showers, and constant sub-zero temperatures, our previous snowfall had gone very hard, icy and quite treacherous to walk on.
When we came back from our Sunday stroll yesterday, James turned our car into a character from Cars the movie!
Alas, there wasn't enough snow to completely cancel all the trains going north. So although there were delays to many trains, my husband still got to go back to work. He will be back on Wednesday this week so that's not so bad really. Only the weather forecast is promising heavy snow for Wednesday too!
The snow is beautiful though. Especially with the temperature being so low. It glistens like jewels in both the sunlight and the moonlight.
Tomorrow I have lots of holiday baking planned. Chutneys and more fudge. Yum yum!
