  6. Hi Di

    I'm not a Vodka drinker .. .. do you think it would work with Gin or Sherry!!

    Tee hee had to smile because tomorrow will be my baking day and I thought it was going to be a serious recipe I could follow until I read "a bottle of Vodka" and my brain said "a bottle!!".

    I then convinced myself it was going to be a little minature bottle .. .. but then read the rest and realised I had been taken in!!! Hook line and sinker!! LOL!!

    Thanks for the laugh.

    Hope you are feeling a million times better today.

    Love Jules xx

  20. ((Burp))ooops, excuse me! Great recipe Di! I got excited as soon as I saw the Martini glass and knew I was in for a treat!!! have made my first year of blogging truly wonderful and I can't thank you enough. Your visits, humour and comments have been a real inspiration to me and I'm not sure tis year would have been the same without you! I look forward to reading your blog becasue I can relate and I don't think I've told you this before but it's scary how much you resemble my sister. That's a good thing just so you know. I am blessed to have three wonderful sisters and we are very close! I'm so lucky!!! It's so uncanny how similiar you and my one sister are - in so many ways! Weird almost. Anyways...I wish You and Yours a Very Merry Christmas and nothing but Good Health and Happiness for 2012. Enjoy time with your family and friends and I'll see you in the New Year! ((Hugs))
