Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas...

Thanks Francesca for reminding me about this lovely Christmas treat!

What a lovely surprise I had when I logged on this morning and saw this post over at Cooking Up A Storm in A Teacup. I think you can tell from Deb's words just how much we value the friendship we've forged this year. When I first started this blog 12 months ago I really had no idea that I would meet so many wonderful, warm, talented and generous people. People like Deb, Lucy, Francesca, Tracey, Sandra, Estelle, Fourth Daughter and katiecrackernuts who have inspired me, made me laugh, made me feel welcome and most important of all taken the time to regularly comment on my posts. In fact, a big thank you to everyone who has read, commented or glanced at these pages over the year.

As the days and hours whiz by I'm thinking this may be my last post for the year. There's a pavlova to make today; roast chicken, stuffing and vegetables to prepare for Christmas Eve; presents that still need wrapping and children whose excitement is so contagious I can think of nothing more wonderful than just sharing this precious time with them.

I'm pretty sure we all want the same thing for Christmas - a day filled with love, laughter, good food, an afternoon nap and no family faux pas so that is what I wish for you. Have a happy and safe holiday season and I'll see you all again very soon.


  1. Merry Christmas Caz! And thanks muchly for your last comment over at mine - I'll be toasting a good many things this Christmas and New Year, and one of them will be to you and my other lovely bloggy friends. How lucky are we?!
    See you in the new year! xo Francesca

  2. Thanks Caz.....the last bit sounds like a good plan.....

    How weird, I was going to post this exact video last night and then Hannah asked if she could use the Apple because she'd left her laptop in I let her use it instead.....

    Have a merry one X

  3. It is a great post and a sign of the absolute generosity and support there is in the blog community. Gosh, I know there must be bad stories but I've never come across one yet. Have a merry Christmas and thanks for the shout out. We're all glad you've become a blogger too.
