Today I have been busy preparing for Christmas.

All cards have been written, the ones which need posting have second class stamps on and will be posted at the start of December.

The courier has collected two parcels this morning to be sent to family, I am doing everything early so it doesn't get caught up and lost in the December mayhem, I have a few more send next week. 
We are off up the town tommorow to get the last of the presents.

I have wrapped all the presents for the Twelve Days of Christmas which I am doing with fellow blogger Jo.

I even decided to do the Christmas cake.

I used the mixed fruit from Aldi, which had a really good mix of fruits, Sultana's, Raisins, Currants, Pineapple, Cranberries, Apricots and Mixed Peel, it looked really nice.

I soaked it in a little Brandy, I will also feed it some more over the next few weeks.

I had to send Hubby out of the kitchen, he loves fruit cake and was ready to dive in.

So with the rest of the shopping to do tommorow, and a few more decorations to buy, all we will need to do is a bit of food shopping for the big day, we are not going overboard, just keeping it simple.

So how are your preparations going?
