This evening I set about producing another batch of Christmas puddings, a little late you may say but I have found they are as nice with just a week before being eaten. My new scales have decided to let me down and I am now stuck with half my dry ingredients mixed together and packets all waiting to be emptied.
I am not willing to risk puds made up without the scales as I think the ratio of fruit to dry goods is quite important as the pudding can end up too rich. I will be off to the shops first thing to get my scales sorted out.
In reaction to this unfortunate incident I have flopped down on the sofa and am taking solace in what will be an early night to bed. In preparation I will be gathering the hot microwave thingy that looks like a bottle and heating it up. Tonight the fire doesn’t seem to be keeping the cold from nipping around the edges and I need a blanket to wrap round my shoulders and legs is in order.
