Busy busy busy today, stripping wallpaper in another of the bedrooms, we plan to paper it on Monday, also today Helen and her mum did most of the festive decorations and we put up the outside tree and I rigged up the lights.

Sister-in-Law Margaret sent us this great recipe for a christmas cake which I would like to share with everyone.

You'll need the following
1 Cup of water
1 Cup of sugar
4 large brown eggs
2 cups of dried fruit
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of brown sugar
Lemon juice
1 bottle of whiskey

Sample the whiskey to check for quality. Take a large bowl. Check the whiskey again. To be sure its the highest quality, pour one level cup a drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer, beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar and beat again. Make sure the whiskey is still OK. Cry another tup. Tune up the mixer. Beat two leggs and add the bowl and chuck in the fried druit. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, pry it goose with a drewscriver. Sample the whiskey to check tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt, Or something, Who cares? Check the whiskey. Now sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Spoon the sugar or somfin. Whatever you can find. Greese the oven. Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Throw the bowl out of the window. Check the whiskey again and go to bed!!!!!!!!!!
