While the others decorate the tree, hatchling no6 decorates the cat. She is so miffed his ears twitch and won't hold baubles in.

Sunday saw the hatchlings conclude their dancing for 2016.
It was a lovely afternoon spent watching them perform and receive their awards.
I am so proud of you hatchlings.
Even you hatchling no5. Who insisted you did not want to dance... and then danced the whole way through in the audience.

I am searching for new cookies. It isn't that I don't like our tried and tested recipes. It is just that there are so many I have never attempted.
So, I am using the run up to the holidays to try out as many new recipes as I can. Starting with snickerdoodles.
Light, buttery and spread easily, if you are not careful - like me.
They taste like the fresh cinnamon donuts at the fair.

So, this year we are doing Christmas pudding in a big way.
We have a traditional christmas pudding with dried fruit and brandy,
A figgy pudding,
And a guiness and whiskey pudding.
They smell so good.
Now, our wait to try them begins.

This was over and hour before high tide and the sea was looking quite full.
As though someone flicked a light switch to winter, yesterday was almost comtinual hail, snow and thinderstorms.
Lightening caused a lot of problems two years ago, and yesterday was no different. Even our local police station have been hit and are notifying everyone that their phones and internet are damaged.
I like winter though.
Warm and cozy in our cottage by the sea.
Listening to the hailliboys on the windows.
We are blessed.
