Christmas Lunch at Castle Rising Tea Rooms!


Early yesterday morning I did a big Christmas shop in Sainsbury's and then fell asleep all afternoon, as I was exhausted. Can't wait for my Christmas break! Working all Christmas Eve and then have Christmas Day, Boxing Day, Friday, Saturday and Sunday off!

Vivien, Ray, Lucy and I had a Christmas Lunch (pre-booked) at Castle Rising Tea Rooms today. Its the only time we will all get together over the Christmas period. Our table was booked for 12.30pm and we had a large round table in a corner. It was a really lovely meal and a bargain at £24.95 for three courses. The decorations on our table were really pretty with crackers, candles, a little Christmas tree and the service was excellent.

We spent the rest of the afternoon at my house. Ray and Vivien left around 6.30pm and I took Lucy back home. I spent the evening making royal icing and decorating my Christmas cake, which I made about a week ago and covered in marzipan yesterday. My creative decorations all look lovely with two tall trees, Bambi deer with little Robins sitting on back (was a tree dec.), Snowy Owl perched overlooking a pond with two tiny penguins, a rabbit, snowman, father Christmas and holly, BUT the height of the trees means I can't put the cake cover over!!! I will post some pictures, once its all set properly – far too risky moving it around to take arty farty pictures, as the icing is far from set!
