We are now down to single figures before the big day and I am in my element. This time of year brings extra work and I know that can be stressful and tiring but really for me, it's just the best time of the year. The twinkly lights that you see everywhere light up what would otherwise for me be such a dark depressing time of year that just the lights lift my spirits without even all the other goodies. Over the past week I have continued to bake, entertain, shop, wrap and decorate as well as trying to live the day to day life. I'm sure I'm in good company with you all, want to take a peak?

St Lucia Day
This week saw the annual feast of St Lucia and I shared a classic saffron bun recipe with everyone. Eat and enjoy, this is a perfect bake for those who do not like to over indulge in the very sweet cookies around at this time of year. St Lucia
Scandinavian Mulled Wine
The Scandinavian version of mulled I must confess to loving it, much more than the mulled wine we are served here in the UK. I share 3 different recipes with you on this post. Gløgg
Let's hide the packaging!
Alcohol is expensive in Norway and the cheapest way to buy wine is by the box. Siting a box on the dinner table is not so attractive and the Scandi's came up with a clever way of covering it up. On this post I share with you my pattern for a knitted wine box cover. Wine box cover
A taste of something different
Mostly in Norway Christmas cookies have some form of spice added to them from ground cardamon to cloves and many in between. so when i can across this cookie from Norway, I had to give it a try. Great for those not a spiced cookie lover Finger Cream Cookies
