Happy Winter Solstice

Happy winter solstice everyone!

Today I baked a toffee apple cake (from Cornflower’s recipe), then had friends round for said cake, plus tea and presents. Lovely presents. A great knitting book and a lovely box from lush.

I’ve been knitting too, but I can’t show you any of it :-(.

I’m re-reading the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, and I don’t seem to be able to get anything else done apart from reading in my spare time.

So, I’m just going to go with it, I’m off for a hot bath with a sparkly bath bomb and a good book. It seems like the best way to spend the darkest day of the year.
