What’s Been Happening?
Covid-19 cases in our area have gone up, so we, like most of the UK, are in Tier 4 (the highest) restrictions. My husband and I spent Christmas on our own, but we were in close touch with our family and friends on FaceTime. We really did have a lovely day.
No one is going very far these days, so while I’m enjoying Christmas present and looking forward to a better year ahead, I’m also having fun looking back on our memories of Christmases past.
We attended a Christmas party at Highclere Castle (the real Downton Abbey) a couple of years ago and had such a lovely time. If you’d like to read more about it, check out An Evening at Highclere. We also attended a Christmas dinner at beautiful Beaulieu Castle last year. If you love castles, you will want to check out A Magical Evening at Beaulieu Palace House too!
When I was growing up, we always used to enjoy “Christmas Cakes” well into the New Year, so it’s still not too late to make one of these delicious Last Minute Christmas Cakes! (They are not all fruit cakes either!)
One of our family Christmas traditions involves making these delicious treats. I’ve recently learned that we are definitely not alone! Learn more about the history of our tradition as well as how to make these easy, flavourful, gluten-free, semi-healthy Marzipan Dates.
Thank you all for sharing your content with the Hearth and Soul Link Party.
A Better Year Ahead Featured Posts
Get a better year ahead off to a great start with this Hot Cocoa Bar with a Gingerbread Theme from Lori at Dining Delight.
I have never actually made a gingerbread house, partly because the gingerbread used for gingerbread houses often seem quite tough. Joanne from My Slices of Life and her son got round this by making a Sugar Cookie Gingerbread House. Doesn’t it look pretty? Joanne also made a traditional gingerbread house. Which one would you choose?
Lisa of Lisa Notes is sharing 20 Things To Learn From 2020, looking back at a year gone by whilst looking forward to a better year ahead.
Shirley of Gluten Free Easily combines two of my favourite ingredients in a delicious recipe for Blueberry Gingerbread. I would never thought of this combination but I can’t wait to give it a try.
On with the party!
