I pulled my sleigh round Lerwick for the last time before Christmas (I write hopefully). I filled it up with bags of horse food and various things I deemed a necessity rather than a luxury, like Chinese ingredients for Floss’ immense cookathons – she is very good.
With my camera slung round my neck, I wandered the deserted streets of Lerwick looking for Christmas inspiration.
I doubt any high street in Britain looks like this two and a half weeks before Christmas. It is very depressing.
The shops had made a Christmassy effort, which was lovely.
Lunch was spent sitting in the car, eating fish and chips (with extra vinegar, please) looking at the waves crashing down in front of us. There is nothing better, in my opinion.
The very definition of awesome.
I am not very good at shopping these days. I get bored easily, talk myself out of whatever it was I wanted and then give up and go home. Which is exactly what I did today.
The horses are all happily outside and although it is very windy, it is also quite warm (10 degrees celsius) so they can stay out tonight.
However, my best surprise today was this…..
Yay. Get me! A huge thank you to everyone who voted for me. I appreciate it hugely and winning means a great deal (it is not just the taking part, you know – never believe that!)
