Since I can't physically greet you and share with you a real Mince Pie, I offer you a virtual one:
Jane's winning streak has been continuing, and Monday saw the delivery of this lovely prize - a very comprehensive collection of Christmas goodies:
This little lot included a 15lb turkey, a jar of Cranberry sauce, 12 mince pies (as seen above), a Christmas pudding, Stilton cheese, crackers, (edible type), a big bag of Satsumas, two bottles of wine, and positively LOADS of different veg - including the inevitable Brussels Sprouts (love 'em or hate 'em they are part of the tradition now).
Most of this lot has gone across to my daughter Emma's house, where I will be spending Christmas Day. [Jane is over in France with Fiona and Juan, helping them to prepare baby Luna's first-ever Christmas Dinner. I don't expect Luna will eat any sprouts...!]
Best Wishes to you all. I'll be back posting to my blog in a few days...
