Just Have Cake...


 Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday but I had to travel home to Cork by myself on Saturday afternoon as Sarah wasn't well enough to go! I collected  mum and we went to my brother's family out in the country. When I woke up Sunday morning, it had frozen solid outside over-night and the cars could not get out of the village without sliding back down the hill. I ended up having to stay until yesterday, so I am way behind as usual with everything Christmas week, but trying to keep calm and carry on!! Sarah is on the mend but not fully recovered yet.


 As usual I came back with some lovely goodies from mum's kitchen.  A yummy chocolate log and her traditional Christmas cake (She adds a fair drop of whiskey)... just to make it taste better! I have the recipe but never attempted one myself! I was going to ice and decorate it... but as you can see it has been cut already (hubby enjoyed a large slice last night). So if all else fails today, I will be sitting beside the Christmas tree, drinking copious amounts of tea and enjoying cake. Hope you all have a lovely day:)

  6. "Keep calm and carry on," that's my new motto!

    Tea and cake make an excellent combination.

    Hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas :)
