So that was Christmas

christmas tree 2015We are enjoying the final days of the Christmas holidays here at Castle HQ. Jam and I have been enjoying lots of relaxing as well as getting a few important house jobs done. Earlier today we stripped the first wall in the kitchen (the walls are being painted the 2nd sample – the greenish colour but we are still searching for tiles)

paint samplesas well as helping with the kitchen redecoration I’ve been adding more feeders and shelters in the garden for our local wildlife to enjoy. For Christmas day itself we had Jams mum to visit, roast Salmon with Christmas veg was the dish of the day and I also cooked up a last minute Christmas cake thanks to this lovely recipe. It turned out really well so will definitely be copying it in to my recipe notebook:
