Dear readers,

Christmas is almost upon us and therefore it is that time of year when I can promote my little children’s picture book called The Jersey 12 Days of Christmas.

I am giving away a free copy to Jersey residents only. All you have to do is comment below and wish me Happy Christmas in Jersey French or Jerriais! 🙂

Colouring in is very fashionable at the moment and very meditative, so why not escape the mad Christmas shopping season with a bit of theraputic colouring in. Go to this post for all the printables and a clue to the giveaway answer: http://ramonadavey.com/?p=535

What’s a Jersey Wonder I hear you ask? The closest thing I can say they are similar to is a doughnut, but not covered in sugar of filled with jam. They are delicious!

‘It was once believed that if you cooked Wonders when the tide was coming in, the cooking fat would over flow the pan.’

(Text from the Glossary section at the back of my book)

Jersey has huge tides. They can come right up and over the sea walls or go out so far that the eye can’t see the edge of the water.
