Day 296 of 365:
So I've decided to try and bake a different cookie or goody of some sort til christmas each day. Or at least every other day.
Today was a plain butter cookie recipe from my mom and I spruced it a bit by cutting the cookies in half, putting strawberry jam in the middle and then sprinkling a small amount of powdered sugar or as the english would say "icing sugar" on top.
Might not look the prettiest but it goes down a treat.
Woke up and went to the gym this morning before work and my oh my I love that so much more. It's like the gym is open just for you because it's that quite lol.
After work we did a bit of christmas shopping. My inner grinch is coming out. I hate christmas shopping. Not that I don't like giving for others it's just that I'm so picky about making the gift personal and that I've put thought into and trying to make sure the other person likes it that I then am left with like no options because none are all that good enough. Husband is always good at putting me in check though. We make quite a great team.
Right I am off here. We are TRYING to start going to bed earlier but with us both working we always have to get things done after work and this seems to be the only time left. We need to possibly get more organised.
10 days till Xmas!
