My day yesterday. We have an old campervan in the back yard which the kids use for sleep-overs during the school holidays. Well I have been trying to close up and put the campervan down since the October school holidays. So hard to coordinate everyone. Then when I do set a day that it was to be done it would rain. So then I would have to wait for the rain to stop and for the campervan to dry and for everyone to be ready again. Finally, yesterday I thought this is the day. I went in to the campervan to do the last little tidy up and make sure the kids had gotten rid of everything last sleepover. Only to discover that rain had gotten in. We had been thinking everything was shut on it. The top skylight type opening had not been shut down properly and it had about a 10cm x 5ocm gap letting all that rain in that was holding us up collapsing the campervan. Thankfully things weren't too seriously damaged just a lot of airing, washing and drying. Now it is all collapsed and covered with a tarp ready for our wet seasons and cyclones.
Amongst that though I did cook my first ever Christmas Fruit cake and I have to tell you I am very impressed. I just want to eat it now. Will have to wait though as a tradition was started about three years ago where our daughter now (13yo) decorates the cake with the white icing. So I will post a photo when she has done that.
We also made Rocky Road and Russian Caramel. So a very yummy day.
