Nick wanted to go out on his bike but the weather just deteriorated. Lots of rain and hail today. Really nasty stuff and no fun to cycle in. So he's been like a lost little boy for most of the day. Looking out of the window and sighing a lot.
As it is now December we have put the Christmas tree up. The usual routine ensued. Phil Spector's Christmas Album and plenty of chaos. But it's done and we all think it looks lovely.

Despite all of the festive stuff, it was still a pretty dull old day. We should bake a cake was the general consensus. However, we were a bit short of ingredients so we managed to cobble together a ginger cake. Total comfort food fix.... it's got treacle, golden syrup, dark brown sugar and oodles of ginger in it. A sure fire winner. We had it with some custard and it was most definitely comforting....
