Chopped crystallised fruits and raisins, powdered milk, dessicated coconut,and rice bubbles (crispies). The whole lot bound together with melted Copha.
Copha is hydrogenated coconut oil with added soya lecithin. It comes in a solid white block, and I'm not sure if an equivalent product is available anywhere else in the world.





There are TWO Santa sacks for grandsons under Gran's tree this year. Last year there was only one.
Can't wait to see their little faces...only one sleep to go!

I photographed this flower in the resort garden at Kota Kinabalu. Does anyone know what it is? (I'm not very good with plants - sneezed my way through two semesters of botany and didn't learn much).

I've just been scanning more old photos, this was taken on my school trip to Stratford on Avon in 1969 when I was 9

I haven't been posting much, but I have been enjoying seeing everyone else's photos. Here's part of my own Christmas decoration at home.

I've always liked these telegraph poles. They lined most roads in London in the 60s but went away very quickly and very hard to find now.

It has been mild over Christmas here this year. A reminder of what it was like at this time last year

I've been scanning more old photos, this is slanted as was stuck in an album like that. The longhorn oxen on the Isle of Skye were very tame for some reason, I expect like the Dartmoor ponies people feed them so they wait around in the car park for offerings. This was taken in 1969.

Great gift, auntie! Satguru, I love the oxen.

Now, you might have to look closely to see the grey squirrel to the right of the gate, but the black one shows up quite well. They had each taken a peanut from the feeder hanging in the middle of the gate (the thing that looks like a slinky), then moved to either side to sit like bookends eating their snacks. They did this more than once.

Thanks Liz, it was amazing when I was looking on Streetview to geotag the photos from Scotland to see many of the places after 40 years still looking almost exactly the same. Another holiday one, this was from the hovercraft window looking over the white cliffs of Dover in 1997. I took one closer but was covered in spray so here is the wider view.

Closing this one soon. Thanks for all your wonderful contributions last year. Thanks to Leo and Jill for your support and help. I said I'd be back after Christmas. Here I am. All good wishes for the New Year. Love Ren.
