Lazy days with walks and baking!



Ok, so Christmas is suddenly starting to feel that much closer. I always find that once October has passed, the time races by!

More on Christmas in just a moment…

I’ve recently enjoyed a few days off. They were lazy days with wonderful walks with my two adorable Cairn terriers. I snapped this shot of the changing leaves. It really is a beautiful time of the year and just fabulous to be outdoors. The weather has been particularly mild as well.

I also did a spot of baking too! I know what you’re thinking… how on earth did Charlie NOT end up on the Great British Bake Off! πŸ˜‰

Although a simple bake they tasted delicious and lasted no time at all in our household.

So… Christmas is around the corner and I’m proud to say I’ve bought a number of gifts already. I can’t go into too much detail just in case the recipients in question pay a visit to my blog! But I’ve bought for Mum, Dad and a few other relatives too. I’m determined to have all my shopping completed by the end of November… Famous last words πŸ™‚

It goes without saying there are many wonderful gifting ideas at QVC from the likes of Yankee CandleΒ to Liz Earle and Bose to Tarte. Such variety.

Something which I have bought already, (two of in fact) is the Bakedin three-piece Mug Baking Selection. At just Β£10 you get three fabulous treats to give away and they’re fun too. Perhaps a gift for a teacher or Secret Santa! They’re brilliant and you can catch a recent presentation here with Simon Biagi. You’ll receive Chocolate Cookie Mug Mixes, Sticky Toffee Mug Mixes and Chocolate Brownie Mug Mixes… oh and they taste divine! They have fantastic reviews as well.

I’m sorely tempted to hold them back for me! I may need to order some more πŸ™‚

Ok, back to my Christmas shopping and a little more browsing through our website.

Take care and see you soon.
