Have promised myself a day doing as little as possible today!
from 8am to 8pm on my feet yesterday - we did our usual Christmas meal
at the Club - 46 people all sat down for Roast Beef, followed by
Christmas Pud then cheese and biscuits with lots of choccies and mince
pies thrown in, quick raffle and a couple of games of bingo. It's a lot
of effort as we have to cook meat etc at home the day before and then
try and cook roasties in the Club oven... which has steadfastly refused
to follow suggested cooking times and part cooked spuds take 2 hours
instead of 30 minutes!
It's actually quite stressful as we always feel
under a lot of pressure to please everyone.
seemed to enjoy it though - thing is that next day I feel like I've
been run over by a bus as the top half of my back and neck do NOT like
me standing all day and stretching up and down to get stuff in and out
of ovens, and OH isn't too hot either - so after 4 years we've hung our
Christmas aprons up for the last time!!
Here's another Christmas share for you today - in a colour I wouldn't associate with Christmas at all!
stamped a greeting and a variety of snowflakes onto cream card in Sepia
ink, added some ribbon and flowers then mounted it onto the background
paper which I'd edged with a scallop punch.
Layered it all onto cream card.
a few sparkly gems into the centre of the snowflakes, dusted the
flowers with some Stickles to make them look 'frosty' and finished with a
couple of pearl pins.
