Mmmmmost delightful. What's that Omar Kkyyam poem now...?

This has me grinning. Thanks for being so tolerant about our nosiness :-D

mapstew said...

Scrummy! :¬)


Eryl said...

Ooh, yum, one's hips don't stand a chance. I didn't put nuts on my shopping list, and so I haven't got any, damn!

Your tablecloth is gorgeous.

R. Sherman said...

Looks good to me, too.


"Sunshine" said...

What a wonderful array of Christmas delicacies....

Pearl said...

Oh, now, that's just mean!

Pour a glass for me...


Pat said...

GG: you are not nosy - just a genuine interest in all things - like me;)
Re Omar - it's the bread I'm a little concerned about. I got all fired up to go shopping via a taxi today, but thought better of it.


Eryl: for some reason we have nuts and raisins coming out of our ears. I've been chomping on brazils with my glass of wine.
My mother did the cloth.

Randall: Feast your eyes - it won't last long;)

Keith said...

That all looks very nice.

Interesting, I see that you have a dresser just like mine, except mine has only two cards on it.

Oh, there goes the doorbell; I expect it's my Fortnum and Mason Christmas Hamper.

*minutes later* No, it was just a parcel from Amazon. Disappointed. . .

Pat said...

Sunshine: I'm trying to keep my hands off them till Christmas.

Pearl; Just the one?

Keith: I'm expecting a parcel from Amazon. Are you sure its not mine?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

The Goodies from the Hamper, I take it....Lovely, my dear Pat!
WISHING YOU A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS My Dear, and hoping the snow lets up so you can get out and about!

Mike and Ann said...

Wishing you both a very merry Christmas, and gosh, won't that hamper contribute towards it?

Warm regardds, Mike and Ann.

Pat said...

Naomi: I saw on Judy's blog you haven't been well. I do hope all is well again.

Mike and Ann: thank you for your good wishes and I hope you have a happy Christmas and a healthy 2011.

Ponita in Real Life said...

Looks like a lovely spread, Pat. Wishing you and your MTL a peaceful and warm Happy Christmas.

I think I need to look up a recipe for Christmas pudding.... I've never eaten it and perhaps LHB would like some next time he's in town. *pops off to google*

Pat said...

Ponita: Most men in my experience like Christmas pudding. It's a long time since I made one but my favourite was a war-time recipe with carrots in it to cut down on sugar.
Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

Kim Ayres said...


Although I have to confess, I don't actually like Christmas pudding much at all. However, as a kid I did love my dad's "Special Cream" which we would slather all over it. He would whip up double cream with a large dash of rum or cointreau and lots and lots of icing sugar.

Heaven :)

Guyana-Gyal said...

I hope you get your bread soon, Pat. Or maybe you can rustle up some pancakes.

Psst, 'genuine interest' = curious? hee hee

Pat said...

Kim: yes I'd relish Christmas pud - or anything really with your Dad's mixture:)
I got the 'backwards' book today. It looks very interesting. See you at Scrabble - I've just won my first - fat chance with you.

GG: did it today thank goodness. Bread etc I mean. Long live 'genuine interest':)
