Good morning lovely people! Have you had a good Christmas? was it fun or was it stressful? I hope not the latter. We have had a very quiet Christmas here in Rotterdam.
My hubby (who is British) cooked a traditional dinner.
But mum doesn't like turkey , so we had a pork roast.I had made a christmas cake at the beginning of November and had 'fed' it brandy on a regular basis. I brought it over in my suit case. (excuse the apron. I always wear an apron. Do people still wear aprons? Do you?)
So I made a lovely butter icing,
iced the cake and put some decorations on it:Here we are, mum and me. Belated happy Christmas everyone!
If you are still with me I will show you some postcards. This one very obviously comes from Russia with some food on it.
It was drawn by an artist called Margarita Tkachenko and is entitledRussian Cuisine. And the stamps are beautiful.
The next card comes from Germany, from a guy called Michael who lives near Cologne. The postcard is a vintage image.
It depicts a mine in the Harz mountains. The stamp is the well known Peanuts stamp. I love it!
I will be joining Annie for Friday Smiles at A Stitch In Time, if she is back that is, and Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday. And of course I will post a few funnies at the end.
Have a great weekend and I hope I will see you all in the New Year!
