Christmas Eve @ the Davies Residence


Well I’ve had a busy Christmas eve! I had lots planned to get done, so I have to say, my throbbing head wasn’t the best start to the day!

I was out with my old school friends last night… I had my new Christmas dress on and I’d made matching jewellery to go with it!

I even managed to get Simon to come out with us…!

But back to this morning… Believe it or not I still needed to make my Christmas cake! I know it’s a bit late to be starting on the Christmas cakes, but it’s the first day where I’ve had some free time in months!

Don’t worry though, even though I hadn’t had chance to make the cakes earlier, I’ve had the fruit soaking in all sorts of goodness for long enough so they should still be nice and tasty!

Job well done!

And while I was busy baking (not only did I do the Christmas cakes but I made some baileys fudge and prepped the nut roast, the stuffings and all the other exciting bits of Christmas dinner), while simon was busy preparing the veggies!

And once we had finished getting everything ready for tomorrow’s big meal, I then set my wrapping machine away finishing the presents…

So now the tree looks complete with all the presents underneath!

I don’t know where everyone is going to fit in the living room tomorrow with all those presents strewn all over the floor!

So now we’re just relaxing with a glass of mulled wine and I thought it would be nice to make a little something for everyone on the Christmas table… So I beaded up these wine glass charms with everyone’s initials which will be great in place of name tags and then double up as a keyring…

I’ve got 13 coming for dinner… So it’s been a lot of beading!

Right, back to my glass of mulled wine then! I hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas!
