A busy weekend and lots of baking

We’ve had a rather busy weekend. Starting on Friday night when we hosted Kevin’s business party at home. It was a nice night and we were able to set up and eat outside – which was nice.

Then Saturday was spent doing a lot of Christmas baking – Amy made Christmas cookies to take to singing & drama, I then made shortbread, lemon cookies, fudge, and a gingerbread house (which was our advent activity for the day). The gingerbread house was a bit of a disaster – the bread was too soft – but the girls had fun and are rather proud of their creation. I also managed to squeeze in a workout at the gym and a swim.

Saturday we had the Christmas Party for my old workplace (we still get invited cause it was my Dad’s company – he has recently retired so it was probably our last year). Then today Mum had a brunch for some family friends. I made zuccini and corn fritters, pikelets and a potato dish.

Oh, and here’s a cute photo of Rosie snoozing on the lounge “in her spot”.
