Our Christmas Tree and how my Dad did it too!

Mummy has been busy putting up the Christmas decorations  in our house as the weather has been to bad for her to do the lights out side.Any way here's a sneeky peek of our tree!
 
This is how my Dad used to do the tree,he always had a real tree and had special candle holders with candles instead but that was when I was 2 or 3 years old this is when this photo was taken and is the only one I have.My mum may have more.

100g/4oz of dark brown sugar

1.Sift the flour with the mixed spice the mix in the ground almonds.
2.Clean the dried fruit in a separate bowl.
3.In another bowl stir the beaten eggs ,milk and brand together.
4.In a large bowl cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy,then stir in the flour a bit at a time with some of the egg mixture until all the ingredients combine to form a smooth batter.
5.Gradually stir in al the dried fruit and cherries and nuts,mix thoroughly.
6.Spoon in the mixture into a 20-22cm/8inch cake tin which hasbeen lined with greaseproof paper.
7.Preheat oven to 160c/325f/gasmark 3 bake for 1 hour then recuce heat to 150c/300f/gasmark 1-2 and continue to bake for another 3 hours.For Fan assist ovens bake at 160c for 1 hour and 2 hours at 150c.

Speedy and his Christmas adventure!

The Christmas tree was up and looking all pretty with its decorations and fairy lights.In fact the whole house was looking all pretty with lights twinkling everywhere and decorations glistening in the light!Speedy was so excited as he thought about it all"It will soon be Christmas Day...hmm I wonder what Santa's like and all his reindeer?"as Speedy hopped in to his magic closet he was supposed to be paying Micky a visit but first he had to pick up Freddie the gerbil from his Auntie Lorna.Speedy poked his nose out of the door of the closet having a little sniff yes this is Freddie house and there was Freddie scampering along "Speedy! Where are we going?"Speedy replied "We're going to Micky's and then off for an adventure.Come on on to my shoulders Freddie!"and with that Freddie scampered up and sat on to Speedy's neck.Speedy hopped back into the magic closet and then it happened Speedy was so excited he forgot about where he was going,the closet where he end up was strange full of big winter coats and big black boots when Freddie whispered"Speedy where are we?"Speedy shrugged "donno Freddie lets take a look"Speedy popped his nose out the door Mmmm nice smell he thought so he hopped out of the door and saw Santa sat at a table eating his breakfast.Then Santa looked up and what did he see....Speedy with Freddie on his shoulders"Hello what do we have here,a rabbit and a gerbil what a strange thing?"Speedy gulped followed by Freddie"Ooh Santa I'm sorry I was excited about Christmas and you and the reindeer and made a mistake I was supposed to be going to my friend Micky's house but ended up here...I supposed I'm on your naughty list now"Speedy head hanging down looking all glum,then Freddie squeaked"Me too"looking a little sad.
      Santa laughed a big deep rumbling laugh "hohohoho not to worry Speedy these things happen, come on you wanted to see the reindeer didn't you?"Both Speedy and Freddie looked up looking all excited and their nose's wriggling excitedly follow Santa to the stables and there they all were with Rudolph at the front looking a little glum.Speedy asked Santa"What's wrong with Rudolph?"Santa told Speedy and Freddie how Rudolph had a nasty cold and was hoping to be better for Christmas eve night,Both Speedy and Freddie wished Rudolph get well wishes,"Santa we had better get going as we still have to go and see Micky before going home"Santa chuckled "Well you had better get going,be good you two" with that Speedy and Freddie hopped back into the closet and carried on to Micky's.Micky grumbled"what took you two so long!You've missed half the game!"So the three of them settle down to watch the last of the game,when the game finished Speedy and Freddie told Micky what happened how they ended up in Santa's closet,Micky looked at them both not quite believing them.
     Speedy took Freddie back home and then arrived back in his home feeling tired and happy stretched out and promptly went to sleep.Then a few days later Speedy could hear someone coming out of the closet...it was Santa!"Uh Speedy about that magic closet?"..........
