Obviously the first thing I did was start to create a list of things to do during my time off:
I allowed myself a sleep-in til 9:20am this morning and started the day with a cup of T2 Melbourne Breakfast tea:
|PS how fitting/awesome is my mug??|
You can't tell from the photo but the red cake was taller at the back than the front (reminded me of the base of a topsy turvy cake). The bottom left cake looked like it was a cross-stitch Santa on the top but upon closer inspection, it wasn't cross-stitch. Couldn't work out exactly what it was but it looked fab. I like the bottom right cake because it's so Aussie - playing cricket, wearing sunnies whilst sunbaking.
On my trip home I managed to drive into the back of a woman. Of course she drives in Audi. Great. Bye bye $650 excess. Last thing I need when I'm off work for 4 weeks and already spending a lot because of Christmas but oh well, lesson learnt.
Came home and made myself a yummy sandwich (rare roast beef, cucumber, truss tomatoes and spinach with real egg mayo) before attempting to make my Rhubarb Gingerbread Sponge Pudding (I'll share the recipe tomorrow):
I spent the next few hours setting up the Christmas tree, wrapping pressies and making gift tags. I'm not 100% finished yet so I won't show you what it looks like... just yet!
Now it's 4pm and I need to go to my Chiro before heading to my parents to help them host a dinner party (this is where the Rhubarb Gingerbread Sponge Pudding comes in).
