This weekend we bundled up in warm clothes and went into town to visit the Christmas market.
It takes up the whole Prom, 2 rows of lovely little sheds, covered in fairy lights and tinsel. It sells bratwurst, Peruvian and Nepalese knitted hats that look like animals (I really wanted the giraffe one!), sweets and Russian dolls as well as bizare meat – springbok burger anyone?!
When the market comes to town that’s when I really start feeling festive, it coincides with the switch on of the Christmas lights and begins our countdown to the holidays.
Ez enjoyed himself whatever the following photo may suggest! I think he was just a bit bored of being stuck in the buggy. This was his first trip out since he caught ‘the pox’ and became contagious and I was so glad to be out, breathing fresh air and getting some exercise.
Annie and I spent some time hidden in between the rows of sheds playing tag and blowing raspberries at Daddy. There were so many people that I was glad of some space.
I love how colourful the market is, you can’t help but smile wandering around, even if you have no money to spend ( I can attest to this!).
Jon bought a Bratwurst, every year he says he will, never does and then regrets it afterwards. I’m glad he treated himself, so was Annie, because she ate loads of it – poor Daddy!
We went back into town on Sunday, the weather was much nicer and I realised I’d not taken any photos of the things on sale so we set off to rectify this.
Then we let Annie to try on a variety of different hats, her favourite was the giraffe one too, she has good taste that girl.
After all that excitement there was just time for some refreshments before heading home for a gorgeous roast pork dinner – a perfect weekend in my book.
What did you get up to this weekend?
