A friend from Canada sent me this delightful ornament.
There was also a beautiful, festive tea towel - the kind I have enormous trouble using to dry dishes and just want to look at, or occasionally put under scones if I am presenting them specially.
There had also been some tea. But customs took it.
I wanted to bake a cake today, I finally got the last ingredient yesterday, but it is Far Too Hot to be turning the oven on. I shall not complain too much, but remember that this time last year we had already had a number of these scorchers.
