Never Want To Bake Another One!

Death is only going to happen to you once; I don't want to miss it - Jim Morrison.
Welcome to my Monday 🍪
I had a warm hug.
Brew with Breakfast.
However I have broken up for the Christmas Holiday, hubby is still on his Wobbly Work Wheel 🎡 until Friday!
I give him a sloppy wet 💋 before he leaves.
I get up, thermal vest goes on.
I have someone coming around to check the smoke alarms, and fuse box.
First up, a coffee is needed.
All the smoke alarms gets replaced.
I even have one fitted in the living room.
The kitchen light was replaced.
The fan was replaced in the bathroom.
As the previous one, (I paid for) if splashed with water could have caused a shock!
He checked all the sockets he could get to.
(He was pleased with our new bathroom light, as he was going to replace with the same as I have got)
Time for some lunch!
Now to make mince pies....
Tea at 3
I got through 4 packs of shortcrust pastry.
Hubby came home and had a sloppy wet 👄 for his trouble.
(He has snooker tomorrow)
Meat Free Stir Fry.
Another batch of meat pies made.
Then a Mincemeat Tart.
Then looked inside today's newspaper.

While hubby works on the Abs machine.
I load up the dish washer and put it on.
Sleep Tea Time.
Christmas Cards and Mince Pies are ready to be delivered tomorrow↓
Behind today's Advent Calendar Door is:
Hubby tried to set the alarm on the Radio Alarm Clock, after the power kept being tested this morning, it wasn't playing ball.
He set the alarm with Alexa.... ⏰

Had a lovely present from one of the parents this morning from Job 1.
Nice to be appreciated ;)

Got as far as putting the marzipan on the Xmas cake.
Just put the mince pies in the oven,ready to to be baked.
The rain came and so did the darkness during the afternoon session of Job 1....

Spot Of Riding Later.....;p

Woo hoo it's Sunday again....
Hubby wanted a ride, I had other ideas....
Like food shopping, making cards, getting Christmas decorations up etc.
We did our food shopping at Aldi.
I closed my eyes while sat in the car park, praying no one was going to hit my car!
Next off to Waitrose for reduced food,
Added bonus was the free coffee!
Made cards, Christmas decorations are up,
We are just about finished making the mince pies.
Using M&S mincemeat, and some Waitrose's Signature Spice in the pastry.
Hubby's luck might be in for that ride later ;)

Date With The Rolling Pin Again!

Today is National Christmas Jumper Day
I wore mine!
 It was time to get out the rolling pin once more
To make the first batch of mince pies for Christmas.
I was supposed to make 12, and ended up with 16.
Soon as my kids saw them, 
It went down from 16 mince pies......
