The Making Of Memories

As each Christmas day draws to a close special memories are made. Sharing with family

laughing


This year handmade had a strong presence



This gift box was handed to me from my gorgeous sister, I would have been happy if the box was empty, I just loved the hand knitted tag.

this is what was inside.

How divine, handmade by sis



I was overwhelmed to say the least







I was also thoroughly spoiled with these books. I am a book lover, however I also love to cook for my family and friends. Any book relating to cooking from my homeland sparks memories of guidance from my Mum in years gone by. Can't wait to test some of the wonderful cakes and slices featured in here.






The sharing of luscious foods













nothing better than a glass of bubbles to mull over happy times


I hope your day was the making of memories

Until next time enjoy happy times.
