Days like these...

Days like today fill me with joy.  Enjoying the simple pleasures of having a rummage at the Vintage Emporium really does make my day.

 I did buy a few treasures some that I need to photograph and two that are presents so I can't show you just yet.

Before having a rummage we did a little shopping and it was feeling very festive and fun in the shopping centre...

What exactly do you call a crowd of Santa's?  I'm sure there must be a name for it.  A Ho Ho Ho of Santa's?  Who knows?  They were congregating for a race around the town.  The Rudolf race had already began (I think that was the children's race).  They did make me smile.

I'm hoping to get my Christmas jingle going this week, so much to little time.  Last week I was blighted with migraines and so it was a bit of a wash out for chores and festivities. I tell you, taking 27 children swimming especially when it is their last swimming lesson so they have a fun session with a migraine wasn't anything like fun for me:(  But I am feeling much better today.  I have even made some home made Baileys.  What's that?  You want the recipe?  

1 pint of single cream
1 can of condensed milk
10 to 14 tablespoons of whisky
10 teaspoons of Camp Coffee Essence

Add whisky and essence to taste, shake it all up in an empty bottle and drink:)

Keep in the fridge until finished (it won't take long to finish it as it is very moreish)

Right, must dash as I have made plans to get the Christmas Cards written tonight.  I will be back soon with some more Christmas recipes soon...

  1. That sounds so miserable I hardly know what to say :( The migraine and swimming combo, I mean, not the Baileys.

    Those glasses! My mum had some like that - she had a whole collection of differently coloured clips for the top of them
