holiday treats

'Tis the season to be jolly...fa la la la la...You know the rest. Today on the BBC website I read an article about the stress of Christmas and how lots of us aren't able to cope with the high-running emotions. I have to say, I get their point. So much expectations to have fun - must remember to have a good time no matter what, etc. Well, I attended the customary end of year meal/party at work, and have to confess, that no, I did not have a great time. There- I said it! Did anybody else get bored this year? (Gosh, I hope I'm not turning into a bitter old woman already)

Now, onto actual real fun things: check out the lovely stash of fabric my colleague gave me! All vintage, some good, some bad, but all definitely mine now. Of course, I had to try and hide it from the Man, who now has a near heart attack/fit every time he spots new fabric in the house...but nay, the Man outwitted me this time, and put on his worst face when the other night he said to me with his angry-and-I-mean-it-voice: "what's all this?" Oops...
Hence the puddinis, which were a success, as they are every year. It was like a factory on Sunday night at home. I was trying to decorate the puddinis and watch the Sewing Bee Christmas special at once. I missed at least half the episode as a result, but I have to admit that I agree with what was said on the programme - homemade presents are not for everybody.
Puddinis, however, are homemade and guaranteed to please even the most reticent and anti-Christmas person you know. Nigella, I don't care what you do when you're not being a domestic goddess, your recipes rock!


  1. ooh that fabric is so gorgeous! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas x

  2. I am looking forward to seeing what you will make with your vintage fabrics ( hope to show you what I will make with mine before Xmas holidays end, dont promise anything though).
    I have never had puddinis, but they look delicious.
    Have a lovely Xmas Eve!
