I'm Dreaming Of a White Christmas




I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, just like the ones I used to know.

Where tree tops glistened and children listened to hear sleigh bells in the snow.

I love snow. It rarely snows at Christmas time yet it's something we associate with the holiday. Cards and decorations depict pictures of snow and snowmen. I just think it would be lovely to have a truly white Christmas where we can stay warm and cosy in our new home admiring the glistening white through the patio doors. Of course the littlies would want to go out and play.



There would be time for that, we could build a snowman too. Then afterwards we would come in and get dry and warm and snuggle up in front of Christmas movies. I can't think of a more lovely way to spend Christmas day.


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, with every Christmas card I write.
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

I love the whole build up to Christmas, writing cards, wrapping presents, decorating the tree, singing carols, every moment is special. Then there is seeing the littlies in their school nativity plays and carol concerts. It's all so wonderful. On Christmas day itself I like to keep things special by playing carols and lighting candles to remember the loved ones that are no longer with us. If I could I'd bring them back for Christmas day, but that's not possible so a little time remembering them is the best I can do.





It's the whole run up to Christmas that makes it special. It's not the gifts you receive on the day, although there is nothing that compares with your little ones faces as they rip the paper off revealing their favourite toy.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, with every Christmas cake I bake,
May your taste buds be treated with delight
And may all your Christmas cakes be white.


One last thing that makes a perfect Christmas is the food. I love Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, sitting down together, pulling crackers, telling the jokes and wearing the paper hats. I also love baking, I make my own Christmas cake at least eight weeks before Christmas and feed it with brandy every week. I make my own mince pies, gingerbread, shortbread, stollen as well as fudge and chocolate truffles which I give as gifts.
Here is a tasty little cake I made today, lovely soft sponge with an Italian style meringue frosting.








Merry Christmas! This post is my entry into the Tots100/Argos 12 Days of Christmas competition.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay



Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
