Made a wonderful visit to Secretts for their Taste of Christmas event, which is being held over this weekend in Milford.
Does turkish delight remind you of Christmas?
Initially, it is not the first thing I think about, when I think of Christmas.
I suppose the memory of my mum, who loved turkish delight, links the two together, as I would regularly make one of my Christmas gifts to her a box of turkish delight.

There is also C.S.Lewis’ book The Lion, the Witch and Wardrobe, were the White Witch, who is holds Narnia in winter’s grip but it is never Christmas, on meeting Edmund (a son of Adam) for the first time offers him turkish delight to bribe him into trusting her.
Of course Edmund hasn’t got a clue who she is, and being a greedy child accepts the sweets she is offering him. In all honesty, I would probably do the same.
Cooking with garlic tonight, with little opportunity to do much of anything over the last five days I thought I would grab this picture.
I love where I work, you get pieces of 3D art work, like this, created by the students decorating our corridors.
I love they have used old, damaged and discarded books to create something new. Perhaps as a librarian I shouldn’t approve, but I so do.
Remember, remember the 5th of November and another year on and I still have the same camera.
Some pictures from my attempt to capture the amazing and fantastic fireworks from tonight’s local display.
Spectaluar colours, especially love the orange in these pictures.
