Bbbrrrrr! It's cold and snowy in England cold I even had ice on the inside of my bedroom window this morning.

Well it's the beginning of advent on the Christian calender today, and whilst my new mini-project is not going to begin until the 1st of December when people start on their advent calenders, I felt it a good day to tell you about my coming blogging project. Seen as advent is seen as a time of preparation I'm going to try and write every day in the lead up to Christmas a little about Christmas preparations in our house and hopefully share some pretty pictures of goings on too. Hence it becomes my own little blog-vent (get it?!?) calender.

Till then enjoy this.....

Christmas Cakes and Sparkly Goodness

I'm sat in our living room exhausted after two long and rather difficult days, with the comforting smell of Christmas cake wafting out the oven making it all feel a little bit better. However, the big dilemma now of course is how to ice it. Trust me I need simple 'dilemmas' like this in my life right now! So, the best idea I've come across so far is this one off the Martha Stewart website...sparkly goodness, eh? Comments/ideas much appreciated please...
