Jet'aime - Mojo Monday 159

Bet this will surprise the bloggers who visit my blog on a regular basis, it's not a Xmas card.  Well I had just received this stamp which is from the KOTM form The Unity stamp Co, and couldn't resist this Eiffel Tower stamp. I love Paris having been a few times, it is just magical. Brian and I celebrated our Silver wedding anniversary there and I can hardly believe that we have just celebrated our Ruby anniversary, where have the years gone. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday most weeks there isn't a prize except on the first Monday of the month, so just had to play along and anyway they are such inspirational sketches. and who knows I might just get lucky this time.

Anyway back to Xmas, but not a card, I have made my Xmas cake this morning and it is in the oven as I write this, filling the house with all the lovely smell of Xmas. I love Jamie Oliver and I buy all his cookbooks and he also has a monthly mag and this month there is one for Xmas cake. I always used to make my own cake at Xmas but as there is only the 2 of us now and we are eating it well into the New Year, I stopped making one, and bought a small one, but this year after seeing his recipe decided to make one, so off to Tesco I went yesterday and bought all the ingredients, soaked the fruit over night in brandy and mixed it this morning and it was in the oven by 8.30am. actually it made two as my cake tin wasn't big enough so I will have one to give away.

Hope you alll have a good weekend.
