Birthdays & Bargains

Oooh, I did well today, I found 8 small kilner jars for just £3! The plan here is to fill to the rim with a scrummy Spicy St Clements Marmalade for Yule pressies.

I reckon I could add a wee dram of brandy and maybe a tad of cinnamon to a mixture of tinned Mamade serville oranges & lemons mixed together – what do you think? Not enough cinnamon that you would actually know it was there, but just a hint so that when the pot is opened the first time a festive smell would leap out of the jar and assault the nostrils.

I like to assault people through my gift giving ;o)

I also managed to find this for my dear mums birthday next weekend – it was only £1! I am thinking I could fill it with pretty sugared almonds.

She has asked us not to buy her or Dad presents from now on, but would rather I made them a cake. As you can tell I don’t always do as I’m told.

I wanted to quickly show you Jons birthday breakfast too. I asked him what he wanted to eat on his birthday – he could choose anything at all and if I could manage it I would make it for him.

This was his perfect breakfast…

A Bacon Butty. Bless him!

Happy birthday Mr Popps, I love you xx
