Christmas preparations are beginning…

It was nice to have a weekend at home this past weekend.  We got caught up on some stuff around the house and I progressed my Christmas baking.

Saturday morning Stella and I went to Hilbre Island while Paul headed out to see a man about the van and some bodywork that it needs.  On Saturday night, we went to a surprise birthday party for one of my colleagues from Capenhurst – it was a good night and nice to see everyone.  The birthday boy was extremely surprised and his family did a very good job of entertaining and feeding all of us.

On Sunday I enjoyed an amazing hot yoga session in the morning.  Then I made a Christmas pie – practice for a meal we’re having in a couple of weeks’ time.  I wasn’t that excited about the recipe once it came out of the oven so I think I’ll have another go making something slightly different this weekend.  We had tickets to a concert for Sunday evening but when it came down to getting ready to go, we both appreciated the idea of staying in instead so we gave it a miss.  I think we are getting old…

In other news, I’m getting more into the swing of the new job now.  I am getting to know people and feeling more at home working there.
