Stollen Moments!

There remains light in the sky until almost 5pm now and it's now a little less than a month until the shortest day when we'll be heading back in the right direction towards lighter nights again! You wouldn't have believed it was so near the end of the year stood on the shores of Loch Dunvegan today, it was beautiful and far from the stereotype of a dreich day! The castle there is a big draw for the visitors in Summer but just now it's all quiet, the only sound to be heard today was that of the burgeoning stream shuttling past! The leaves are an amazing mixture of golds and oranges and against the backdrop of the low sun it made for a perfect Autumn scene!

Hard to believe that it's just a couple of days until all our friends in America celebrate Thanksgiving and just a few days after that until Advent Sunday dawns and the Festive Season truly begins in earnest! Although, Sadie did talk to someone today who had already received their very first Christmas card of the year!! Time, then, for a slice of Christmas Stollen Cake! This is a very special festive miniature as it's the first mini to come on one of our new handmade 'granite' effect boards! More important than that though, is that the Christmas Stollen itself looks more than appetizing....if only it were real!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

Val & Sadie
