Hi Betty,

Welcome back pal! The tree is up and everyone put a decoration on it. The lights are up, and everyone put their personal decorating touches up around the house. We've shortbread in the tins, the cupboards are stocked with everything you can think of for a wee party and the kettle was kept ready for anyone who popped by. We've all taken turns doing our chores. That's me, just finished the stairs. Everyday someone popped by to see if you'd come back and put the kettle on after their shopping. wub.gif

My son had a Saint Bernard ,called Mookie .She ate about a pound of Hershey Kisses (wee chocolates covered in silver paper ) Every time she did a dump in the back yard it sparkled .
Now to get off the subject ,here's a wee delight easy to make ,anybody can do it . Forgotten Cookies.
Pre heat your oven to 375. Beat four egg whites and a tsp cream of tartar till you get stiff peaks . Gently fold in 3/4 cup sugar ,300gms chocolate chips and 300gms butterscotch chips . Drop by spoonfulls onto a cookie sheet covered in wax paper . Put them in the oven .TURN THE OVEN OFF .Forget about them for at least three hours or until they are dry .They melt in your mouth.
Catherine

Hi Betty Ladies and Gentlemen.
Looks like the place is all set for Christmas everyone, good on all of you.
As you all know I havent been in for awhile, thought I'd sit down and put my feet up for a wee breather, my heeds been going roon and roon for awhile now.
Normal life stress and awe. Its so nice to sit and ponder, in the tranquility of this wee room at the moment.
I can feel the spirit of Christmas cheer here and its filled with the friendship spirit too. Just what Ive needed.

Good to see you in Betty's Marion.Lucky you with the nice weather .Us poor souls up north here are frozen .It's like Catherine said cold and snowing . I've just about got everything done ,apart from my stitching .I'm going to make Millionairs Shortbread tomorrow and thats the lot .I think I might join you in a splash Marion but then maybe not I might make a mistake in the picture .I'm near going skelly as it is without taking back wrong stitches .Catherine here's a wee tip when wrapping presents ,instead of using cellotape use a glue stick .It only takes one hand and it works a treat .
jimmyd
