Christmas table

It's been a lazy lead-up to Christmas around here really. The last of the gifts have been dropped off to friends heading out of Sydney and today's been all about making lists for tomorrow. Food lists. Food lists that I will clutch tightly in my hand as I head out of the house at 7am in the hope to avoid crowds clutching at the best of the cherries, raspberries and so on.

Once the bounty has been caught - or bought - we'll start cooking a few things that can be put aside. Like the pavolva shell for Christmas Day and the mini fruit-mince cheesecakes for Christmas Eve.

Nothing more to think about right now than to play around with how the table will look and finding the time to make bon-bons like we did last year (instructions here). My kind of dilemmas.


  1. Wishing your family a very merry Christmas. I couldn't find my Christmas cds so haven't been listening to xmas music this year. Usually I listen to it all of December and right on into January. I just couldn't seem to get my act together for Christmas this year. We just finished school today and now have 2 weeks off for the winter break. To me, that's the best gift of all. Happy holidays!
