Let the countdown begin.

Despite all our troubles, I am determined to make Christmas special. With only five weeks to go I need to start thinking about the gifts I am going to give. 

I plan to give everyone gifts that are at least in part homemade, be that blackcurrant gin (more a liqueur than a gin), sweets or biscuits. 

These are ready to wrap.

I am busy looking for recipes now, for things I can make that will keep until Christmas.
