|It was cold...and not vacationey....but I went to Paris and Versailles for a work meeting.|
|This is the palace of Versailles....so it wasn't ALL work related....it was very.....golden.|
|We got lost. Three times. It was pretty much the worst group of three women that could possibly be put together to navigate anything. Including a building....which we couldn't find. |
WE COULDN'T FIND THE ENTRANCE TO THE GIANT PALACE BEHIND US.
|This is Christmas cat...she sounds like a sleigh. And before you go all animal rights....this was sold BY A REPUTABLE PET STORE and she was basically an asshole about Christmas and tried to destroy it.|
|Seeing as my recipe book my mother gave me as a child was destroyed by soulless fuckwits...ahem.....my mom re-sent me the old family recipes for German Christmas cookies.|
|It was a beautiful night.|
|We went Ice Skating below Edinburgh Castle with the kids....Monkey did very well for his first time. I don't think he will be skating again any time soon....but he stayed upright. I was proud!|
|The German Market in Edinburgh was amazing...we bought a Stollen for Christmas morning (which went well with the Champagne and Orange Juice) and some cookies.|
|Monkey bought me a pasta maker for Christmas...I've been whining about one for a year or so. He did good.|
|This is creepy Scottish Santa.|
He seemed like a good idea at the time. Mainly because he was 79% off.
He sits on a shelf above the sofa and waits for you to look away before coming to life.
|Boxing Day was cooking day.|
Check the creepy-ass legs on that Turkey. Yes, that's the weird skin on the legs STILL ON THE LEGS.
And there were feathers. I had to pluck some.
It was hideous....but tasty.
I love Turkey so hard.
I also imported some Pumpkin Pie filling and make pumpkin pies for Christmas - oh how I've missed them! They were a hit! Mum, Monkey and 1/3 of the kids all ate it. I did have my doubts.
The tree came down on the 27th because I COULD NOT TAKE ANOTHER CAT IN THE TREE AGAIN MOMENT and order has been restored to our home.
Bring on 2013...I expect good things this year.
