Cinnamon patrol

Mr and Mrs Lili Wedding



It's been ages since I've blogged, and loads has happened, but here are a few of the most important things:

Firstly, assorted treats
I participated in a gift swap in Ravelry (to the uninitatied: Facebook for knitters, but much, much better). I gave to the lovely but sadly blogless Mairin, and received a lovely bundle of goodies from the also-blogless (noticing a trend here) SusyMcQ.

By lovely bundle of goodies, I mean YUMMY cherry-kirsch-chocolates, Rowan Kid Classic in a soft blue, a great pattern of a cardi I *need*, festive bath bombs, and a Xmas candle. Such a great gift - David will have to work hard to match it!

Secondly, food-related treats
We hosted Xmas cookie making yesterday. 3 friends showed up and we ate, drank, and made & decorated cookies. SO many cookies. Perhaps a few too many, so I shared some at the office this morning.

Apparently people find actually spicy gingerbread (as opposed to shop stuff) almost too spicy. Huh, who woulda thought? I say down with the shop-bought stuff, make your own so you can actually taste the ginger (And cloves, and cardamom, cinnamon & nutmeg. No mace this time, I was a bit slack!). I'm not changing my recipe, I like the strength of the spice!

Thirdly, undecided treats
My third treat is yet-to-be-decided, though if you were mean you'd say it's kind of a treat in itself and I don't need a real treat. (If you were MEAN, which you mustn't be, because mean people don't read our blog.) I had my 6-month evaluation, and I'm now permanent at my work, yay!

Must think of nice treat to celebrate. New shoes, maybe?
