I am a little behind this year as I usually bake my Christmas cakes in the last week of October. I bake for myself, my mum and mother-in-law and nothing heralds the coming of Christmas quite like the aroma of cakes infusing the house. I'm baking today but started last night by soaking the dried fruit in brandy.
Yesterday I went into Manchester to buy presents for both my husband's and daughter's birthdays which are coming very soon. I saw these fabulously cheesy jumpers in Primark and I could not resist one each for me and Bel. Only £12 each and to be worn in the spirit of the season, I cannot wait!
