Everyone loves a party!

I'm delighted to take part today in Janice Horton's party to celebrate the launch of her new novella - a real Halloween treat.
Don't miss the opportunity to download this for free today from or from You won't be disappointed.
As part of this fun event, Janice asked us to conjure up a spell. Given the problems this morning, mine should have been one to make sure the internet didn't crash! And I did think of stealing an Anglo Saxon spell or charm - they seemed to have one for every occasion.
In the end, I decided some serious help was required with all the tasks looming between now and Christmas (not least because I've signed up for the 'Write a Novel in a Month' event in November).
So here's my spell for a Christmas pudding - to save me the bother of making one.If it works I'll let you know!
a flurry of snow
a symphony of spices
a crunch of sugar
three clouds of flour
a candy box of peel
a wealth of juicy sultanas and currants
a pinch of love
a blink of sunshine

Mix well with three kisses and a handful of dreams and bake in a warm oven until ready. Eat sparingly, unless it's Christmas Day.

  1. Yum, yum, Myra - I do hope that great spell works!

  2. I would enjoy that Christmas pudd. Myra. Thank you for reminding me about the free download of How do you Voodoo.

  3. Perhaps I should make a batch and sell them?

  4. Fabulous, I always struggle with the old Christmas pudding but this year, it'll be a breeze. Thank you! X

  5. Great spell Myra - I'm trying not to think of Christmas but perhaps a spell is all I need to make it happen without too much effort on my part! Loved the photo of the cottage on Bute - butiful!

    Thanks for your support and tweets today - you are such a fabulous support and good luck with NanoWriMo!

    Love Janice xx

  6. Still too early to think of Christmas but a great spell nonetheless!

    I'm doing NaNoWriMo too so maybe we'll bump into each other during November.

  7. Hi,

    A heart-warming recipe spell... Clever! ;)


  8. What a beautiful recipe! I hope you enjoy your Christmas pud!

  9. It's been a great day! Here's to the next one!

  10. Sounds like fun to make..I'd probably be dripping with melted snow, covered in flour and sunshine, peel, and a whole truckload of spices by the time I finished. :)
