Anyway - that's all well and good and I have never hidden the fact that I am a huge fan of Country Road, particularly their customer service which I have always found to be brilliant. But this year I am very concerned. They have styled a pavlova. Yep - not just slathered on a stack of cream and thrown some berries on top. But styled it. And because it is Country Road it is styled with natural looking wooden popsticks.
It is like a hedgehog pavlova. I think, on very close inspection, that the postick thingos are actually spoons. Maybe??? Not sure. Regardless I don't know if I am up to the task. If Country Road has started styling their pavs does that mean I have to? My pavs have always been more of the low maintenance variety. Any cracks are just doused in cream and then berries/fruit/chocolate thrown on top for good measure.

Oh dear - what to do? I can handle wooden tennis rackets and wicker baskets but I am going to fail on the massacred pav. Oh well.
The arrival of the Country Road catalogue has definitely signalled the start of Christmas celebrations here though. The tree is going up this weekend and we are all Very Excited.
Incidentally Country Road people, thank you for my "spend and save" voucher. As I am sure your online people are aware, I have already used it. I hopped on the website to buy one nightie and managed to buy a nightie, a dress, a dress for Farmgirl and some shorts for The Farmer. So I've got the "spend" bit covered.....
