It's beginning to smell like Christmas

This morning the house smelled of furniture polish. Not a bad smell, kind of like spring and lavender; clean and fresh. It wasn't a bad feeling either, knowing the housework's done, and thanking Mum.

But this afternoon; that's a different tale. This afternoon we filled the bread-maker with stollen, put a Christmas cake into the oven, and set a two-pound Christmas pudding to boil on top of the stove.

This afternoon it's beginning to smell like Christmas. And who cares if it's raining outside while we have colored lights and spicy scents to keep us warm?

I posted another Christmas drabble too - just click on stories to see it.

Could you send your mum over to my house?

I searched, but I seem to have lost your address. Can you re-send it? I've cooked nothing. Still waiting on GE to fix my refrigerator!
