On the twelfth day of Christmas ...

… my true love sent to me - 

12 festive mince pies

11 winter pine-cones

10 stars a shining

9 baubles hanging

8 pens for greetings

7 candles lighting

6 toys a-gazing

5 gold rings

4 poin-setts

3 Santa stamps

2 turtle doves

and an angel a-top a Christmas tree.


All the mince pies are eaten along with the majority of the first Christmas cake. The other cake will continue to mature until our weights come down a little. The rest of the chocolates are hidden and I am restricting myself to one 'sweetie' a day. Oh my!

Highly readable


  1. Yum - those mince pies look good enough to eat :)

  2. Brilliant! Those mince pies look yummy! Suzy xo

  3. I've read this Trisha Ashley book and I really enjoyed it too. I've got another Christmas themed book of hers on my book pile, but haven't got around to reading it this Christmas. Maybe next year!
