...and Hagia on her blanket and I with a nightcap...

...collapsed on the chesterfield,
for a long winter's nap...

No, sorry. No Daring Baker contribution from me this month...eight fruitcakes and 20 dozen cookies have pretty much rendered me exhausted for any more Christmassy baking.

Still recovering from three hours of gluttony on Christmas Day and the almost annual Boxing Day turkey pot pie making extravaganza.

Will be back in the New Year. Until then, please keep safe and have a lovely, festive, soused, tea-totalling, quiet and joyous New Year.

cheers!

I can understand that exhausted Christmas feeling. Your kitty is gorgeous - what a beautiful smokey fur coat she has.

Happy New Year Jasmine. I wish you great happiness for 2009. I love your cat by the way.

I so hear you and was wondering where all this exhaustion is coming from. No Daring Bakers for me this month either - it somehow just couldn't fit into all the insanity.

I,too, am exhausted. 12 fruitcakes, and I was traveling so much that *gasp* no cookies this year!
