Marvelous Monday Link Party #84

Marvelous Monday Linky Party

Welcome to Marvelous Monday!

Well what a lead up it has been to Christmas in ‘sunny’ Adelaide.  We have been experiencing heat that is normally reserved for January or February…..not December. And the worst part is, there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight.

Growing up in the UK, I am not great in the heat at the best of times, but at Christmas it just feels wrong wrong wrong!  Then crank up to the heat to over 40 degrees and well….it’s hardly going to be a white Christmas here!  I am praying for at least a cool change to come in, but with it predicted 39 degrees on Christmas eve, I think I need to be praying harder!

What kind of Christmas are you likely to be experiencing this year?

In case you missed it last week, this is what we were up to on the blog.

Easy Tomato Soup Recipe:

This easy tomato soup recipe is made with few ingredients. In less than 30 minutes you can have comforting tomato soup. It's perfect for winter months.

These FREE Christmas cupcake toppers are easy to download and use at your Christmas parties. They are great for party styling.

    I’m liking those cranberry white chocolate cookies, but then, how can you go wrong with chocolate and cranberries? I might try with dark chocolate. 🙂 It’s been unseasonably warm here as well. I haven’t done the conversion between C and F, but we’re going to be over 80F this week. Doesn’t feel like Christmas weather at all! Thanks for hosting and hope you have a Merry Christmas! 🙂
