Christmas can begin now!

I love stories when something I post on Facebook or write on my blog leads to another unexpected thing and results in a lot of pleasure.

On Sunday I baked Fruit Mince Pies from scratch. I posted this photo on Facebook and an English friend who lives nearby expressed an interest. I invited him and his family over for morning tea and they came this morning. 

It was very satisfying from a cook's point of view to witness his delight in savouring my Fruit Mince Pies! But we also had a lovely time just chatting together with them.

His comment as they left: 
"Christmas can begin now!"
Indeed, we have the right food, we've got the decorations up, the boys are all on holidays, and we're beginning to relax. Let Christmas begin!
