Hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
Christmas Eve church,
Christmas morning coffee, stollen, presents.
Prawns and salmon on the deck; it was cold and misty- yay!
Turkey thighs, roast vegetables, green.
Plum pudding, custard and icecream.
"Miracle on 34th Street" with caramel popcorn.
Ham on sourdough.
Dickens' "A Christmas Tale" once the younger two had gone to bed with chocolate.
A very special day at home with our family.

We ran out of golden syrup; but honey worked well. 7 year old daughter enjoyed making and icing this batch. I have promised each child that they can make a batch.... We will try two different recipes. This recipe was from the thermomix community... the thermomix did well to knead the dough.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you,” 1 Peter 1:3-4

A long time ago, there was a blog called Food Fun Farm Life and a lovely lady called Lynda who sent me this traditional Tanzanian cloth......
I am not sure if she still blogs, but I have framed this cloth and it now hangs in our lounge room.
I enjoyed reading her blog and getting to know her.
OK still cluttered, but different. We have removed a lot of stuff; but a couch has come in which we are enjoying. The spaces are going to be used differently now and perhaps in a better way.
Thanks Mrs Ball and Mrs B and Mrs N for your suggestions.

The evidence of an active household; but the reality is that a lot of items in our house are surplus to requirements. Many things hold value to us as they have been given to us. The challenge now is to get the rooms emptied of the things that are not used or that are not especially meaningful.
When one has to think of what one actually needs in case of evacuation etc, there are not many things that are crucial are there?
