I made my husband's favourite Christmas treat: mince tarts. Actually he made and soaked the mince. I just made the pastry and the tart cases as he finds that too fiddly. The short crust pastry was crumbly and delicious. If you are interested let me know and I'll share the recipe. It's very easy.
And I made my kids' favourite chocolate sugar cookies in the shapes of snowflakes. This is one of their favourite parts of Christmas Day. I should make them more often.
On christmas night I slept twelve hours and still woke exhausted . Ridiculous but I'm ready for a holiday. Part of my break will be planning 2014 for my business and working out how I juggle things... And plans to take better care of myself.
Hope you all have at least a few days between Christmas and New Years to relax and ponder life
