From Ngaire’s journal, 8th December, 1950
I iced two Christmas cakes today, one for ourselves and one for the carollers who are to have supper with us on Christmas Eve.”
put the marzipan on my (one) Christmas cake
bottled 16 jars of apricots
made 6kg of apricot jam
organised the Christmas tree (but not the decorations)
made the Christmas pudding and put it on to boil.
It’s going to be a late night.
