Seasonal preparations

SO…I bought of couple of Panetonne cake things the other day. They come wrapped in cellophane and encased in large, substantial cardboard boxes with a festive ribbon lopped in at the top. Very Christmassy, a little bit continental and the sort of thing that anyone with cake lust would surely embrace with open arms.(apart from my best friend who claims they are nothing more than fancy Nimble bread, tasteless, pointless and dull)
Well my friends, the Panetonnes have not even made it to the first day of Advent and here is why.
Yesterday morning I got up came downstairs and opened the kitchen door to find before me a scene of total festive fayre devastation. Cardboard was strewn everywhere along with sticky cellophane and the remains of two family size Panetonnes. In the midst of all this was the dog. Bloated, barely able to move and with a look of ‘why did you leave them in an accessible place? you are so EASY…’ on his face. Oh and there was also a lake of Panetonne puke.
This, thus far, had been pretty much my only effort at Christmas shopping. So back to the drawing board on that one.
However, on the weather front I am totally prepared for snow. Logs? canned food? long life milk? extra warm vests, socks and pants? NAH! I have bought a sledge!
