Oh it hurts...

Where did today go? I feel like it's been busy, busy, busy...yet we haven't really done that much. Must have something to do with trying out a new recipe which we spent nearly all afternoon (!!) cooking. Saw a re-run of "Nigella Bites" the other day and got really tempted to try her ham in coca-cola (!!). So off to the shops we went this morning and bought a ham. Nearly £11!! Didn't think ham was that expensive LOL! Anyway, boiled it this afternoon and glazed it in the oven.

The result? It was actually really nice (she says who was rather skeptical at first!). And that even comes from a person who are not especially ham crazy. Got lots left over too so we'll have some for lunch tomorrow and then some more left over after that too. So I think it was worth the long cooking after all.

I thought I would share my Christmas journal page 8 with you also. This was all about what is typical for this time of year, what things you notice appearing, what things are changing etc. I didn't really follow this so much. Instead I did my own little thing using lots of squares.

Been suffering with a migraine the last few days so apologies for any spelling mistakes etc. I have to go back and change about every second word (and I'm not joking!!) as I type this because my brain just isn't functioning at all. Off to have a rest, this computer is not doing me any good...
