I get my flipping cast off, roll on 1:15pm the time of my appointment.
I managed to get the rest of the Christmas presents wrapped on Wednesday, and for once it took very little time as we have cut back such a lot this year. Infact I won't be buying any wrapping paper or Christmas cards in the Boxing Day sales this year, as I have plenty left.
I read this article online about how a woman's mother cancelled Christmas many years ago as her father was sick and they just couldn't afford to buy presents. Read about it here I have said for many years that the true meaning of Christmas has been lost. There is even a poll on this site asking "would you cancel Christmas."
I personally wouldn't cancel Christmas, but would like to tone it down. One thing I do though is make sure we don't spend too much and make sure it's all paid for, as the last thing I want is to be paying for it for the rest of the year.
Finally, does anyone have a good Bread Pudding recipe, one that does not contain dried fruit. I have a craving for Bread pudding and we do not like sultana's or raisins.
