We have many days of storms/gales ahead now so today, in a brief lull, I went out with my “sleigh” for the last trudge around the shops before Christmas.
I was my own – family left behind with various chores needing doing – and I spent a lovely afternoon wandering around looking at the Christmas windows on the street.
Many of the shops had made a huge effort and it really helped me get into the Christmas mood, which I will admit I am severely lacking this year.
My girls are still featuring. Always good to see.
When I came out of a shop, someone had turned on the lights.
Ok, they are a bit of a curate’s egg but the Norwegian Christmas tree at the Market Cross looked lovely.
So that’s me. I’m done with shopping. I bought locally as much as possible and tried to support independent traders.
Bring it on. I’m ready (sort of).
Now for the wrapping marathon.
