In fact, a couple of Christmassy movies might be just what we need to get us, fully, into the required festive mood. Earlier this morning I made my usual cranberry sauce, to the same recipe I have made for as long as I can remember. In fact, the link takes you to a post from 2007 with a three-year-old Christopher helping to stir the berries in the pan, bless his heart! The marzipan will go on the Christmas cake later today, finally preparing it for decorating at the beginning of next week. Then it's just a question of waiting for the snow to melt for the final sortie to the shops (to pick up the turkey the Christmas Eve ham, the vegetables and maybe, just maybe, a few little extra treats. Well, it is Christmas!
